Frequently asked questions

Are all questions required?

No. Free text questions can be skipped. We plan to allow you to mark any question as optional later. If you need it sooner, please let us know.

Are surveys anonymous?

Yes. Anonymous surveys give your employees the confidence and freedom to be entirely truthful in their answers, resulting in unbiased submissions.

Can I re-order my questions?

Not yet. We plan to add this functionality at a later date. If you need it sooner, please let us know.
