A couple weeks ago, my next-desk neighbor Kevin showed you the future of our survey design tools. Now I’m here to introduce the future of our survey analysis tools. And (with all due respect to Kevin) while pretty prototypes are great, what I have to share is (in my humble opinion) even better: a Beta version of our Analyze tab that lets you analyze all the data in your SurveyMonkey account today, using brand new features as we finish them.
Join the Beta now by filling out this survey.
You spoke, we listened
We started the process of building a new Analyze section many months ago, and we started with you, our customers. We asked you (using a survey, of course) how you use SurveyMonkey to analyze your data, what things you like and dislike, and what you wish you could do. We even visited some of our users and watched them analyze their own surveys. Here’s some of what we heard:
Lots of clicks? Not so good.
You got a bunch of responses to your survey and you want to analyze the results and make decisions fast. You don’t want to have to make a bunch of clicks and visit multiple pages to get the insights you’re looking for. That’s why we’ve created a new interface that lets you Filter and Compare your data without leaving the results page. Make a change and see it instantly reflected in your results.
Lots of charts? Very good.
You love charts for your data. They make the data clearer and they look great in your reports. So we improved our charts – putting them right on the summary page with your data and making them more customizable (even for Basic users!). You can choose from 8 different chart types, customize the axes, and display the data right on the charts.
Reports come in many shapes and sizes.
We know you create different reports for different audiences. We’ve made it easy to create different views of your data and switch between them with one click. Build Show rules to select which questions appear in your results, filter your data, then save it all in a Saved View. You can also choose to show or hide charts and tables for any of your questions.
Here’s a look at what you’ll get
Be one of the first to try the new Analyze
A few select users have already gotten a glimpse of the new Beta features, but now we’re opening the Beta up to everyone who’s interested!
Just fill out this survey below to let us know you want to check it out, and we’ll give you access to the Beta. (You’ll see a new “Analyze BETA” tab on SurveyMonkey, right next to the usual Create, Collect, and Analyze tabs.)
And, of course, once you’ve had a chance to use the new Analyze Beta, we’d love to hear from you about how it’s working for you. There’s a “Feedback” tab in the new Analyze that you’ll be able to see on every page, so don’t be a stranger.
Thanks, and happy analyzing!
