Salutations survey-makers! My name is Kevin Hale and I serve as a Product Manager here at SurveyMonkey. My team has been tasked with the great responsibility of reimagining and building out a brand new survey creation experience for SurveyMonkey. Before you get a little too excited (or scared), I want to assure you that at this moment, we still have a long way to go. A very long way.
Obviously, redesigning a product used by millions is no easy task, and we are determined to do this right. It’s actually why I’m here. We really want to get our users involved early in our process. We want you to help us make the next iteration of SurveyMonkey the best it can possibly be.
And so today, we are announcing an exciting first for our company. We are releasing a sneak preview of the work we have so far on the new survey creation experience and welcoming anyone and everyone to try it out and give us some initial feedback. You can test drive it at surveymonkey.com/create/.
Please keep in mind that this is basically a prototype — a very high quality prototype, mind you, that we’re really proud of — but fundamentally incomplete at this stage. That said, here’s some cool features to check out in this version of our work:
- Easy to Follow 3 Step Experience
- Question Type Consolidation
- Drag and Drop Deliciousness
- Live Theme Preview
- Integrated Access to Templates and Question Bank
- Easier Access to Hiding and Showing Major Survey Elements
- Improved Move and Copy Interfaces (Can also drag to reorder)
- Industry first MiniMap Preview
- Responsive Layout
What’s even more exciting is that over the next few months, we’ll be updating this demo with new features as we build them out and incorporating your feedback as we go. We’ll even be following up here on the blog with behind the scenes posts on the design decisions we’re making and providing in-depth coverage on the new features we’re baking into your new Create.
So follow us here on the blog and give us your thoughts in the comments section below. And please come back often. It’s going to be a show.
