We can hardly believe it, but 2012 is almost over and it’s certainly been keeping us busy! We’ve been spending lots of man-hours (or monkey-hours, if you will) gathering and listening to customer feedback and testing out new features. All of this has allowed us to build some great new products in order to make your survey design experience the best that it can be. If you happened to miss out on any of our new feature updates over the course of this year, never fear! Here’s a quick recap of some of 2012’s best. Take note and have fun creating amazing surveys!
Customers let us know that clicking around to a bunch of different places in order to find their survey respondents’ data was not ideal, that they loved charts and that having more options to view data in reports they create would be great! Our team has been working hard at developing a new interface for users where filtering and comparing abilities will be all in one page- no more pesky clicking. Customers will also soon have 8 types of charts to choose from and last but not least, the ability to produce different views of your data with a single click, will also be available. Also, we’ve recently added the ability to export your survey data–in Excel, CSV, or PDF with SPSS soon to come!

A brand spanking new survey design experience is on the way and our Product Team has been working diligently on some big new changes to the look and functionality of making surveys. Some cool new features that our customers can expect include the ability to consolidate question types, preview themes, integrated access to survey Templates and Question Bank, and more! It’s a work in progress that we’re proud of and we can’t wait to share our progress with all of you. We’re also relying on your comments, suggestions and feedback so be sure to follow the blog and leave us your thoughts. Get the full scoop from our Product Manager on the Create Update and keep an eye out for more updates to come.

We asked our customers what would help them most in getting their surveys off the ground and they spoke! Tips on how to design a survey and best practices on collecting responses were the most popular requests and behold, our new Logged-in Home Page was born. Here, customers can easily discover new features and quickly locate a summary of their most active surveys. It’s also a one-stop-shop where we can share our tips, tricks and more advanced survey design content. Read more about what you can find on the Home Page here.
We’re super excited to bring a dynamic and powerful new feature that we believe will help drive and improve your research abilities in surveying. The concept is simple: you tell us how many respondents you need for your survey, who your target demographic is, how fast you need responses, and we do the rest! With SurveyMonkey Audience, we find you the right respondents quickly, cost-effectively and will deliver completed surveys to you within 2-5 business days. It takes only a few minutes to set up–all within your existing SurveyMonkey account. With respondents currently available in the USA, the UK, France, Canada, Australia and more- the world is at your fingertips!
These are just a sample of some of the many exciting new features we have been working on this year here at SurveyMonkey and as always, we look forward to hearing your feedback and letting us know what we can do to make your surveying even happier. Here’s to 2013!
