Survey Anyplace is a survey software application that is based completely online. This means you can log into your account from any browser to create and distribute surveys. Another benefit is that the software is maintained in the cloud, updating automatically, so you do not need your own IT department to fix bugs or manage the software.

To begin making a survey using this survey creator, you must complete a few initial steps. One of the first of these steps is choosing a URL for your survey. While for some this level of customization may be appealing, we found it cumbersome and time consuming as the first three names we tried to use were already in use. In our experiences with testing other software, we found that URL names that are automatically generated make the process much simpler.

Once you get past these initial steps, it is easy to build your survey. The icons for adding questions to your survey are clearly labeled, and there are a few unique question options, like adding star ratings, that make your survey more visually appealing and add a touch of personalization.

Distributing your surveys with this survey creator is easy. It only requires a couple of steps: You simply click the Distribute tab and then activate your survey. You are also provided a QR code, which makes delivering mobile surveys simple and enhances the mobile appeal of this survey software. QR codes are a great option if you want people to take surveys when they are in your store.

Respondent feedback of the survey platform is about average when compared to similar products. Many respondents didn't like how the back and next buttons are located so near the bottom of the screen. This could inhibit some respondents from finishing surveys, especially longer ones. Even though respondents did not like the positioning of the buttons, most rated the survey's visual design as very appealing. Visually appealing surveys are more likely to catch audience attention.

Help and support options provided by this survey maker include email support, FAQs and a blog. When we tested the email feature of this service, the company was quick to respond with helpful answers to our questions. The blog also has helpful tips like how to create a survey and how to analyze results once your survey starts to get responses.

Summary

Survey Anyplace is a well-designed online survey creator that helps you build sleek surveys. While getting started is a little slow and cumbersome when you have to create your own URL, everything after this point when building the survey goes quickly.
