A good filter can help you unlock insights from your survey while saving you a lot of work when analyzing your data. And who doesn’t like to be smart while doing less work?
There are three main ways you can filter your survey results with SurveyMonkey. You can filter based on:
We’ll walk through how and when you can use each one to get more out of your surveys.
Filter by Responses
Say you want to know what the differences are in employee satisfaction based on the department your employees work in. You can ask respondents a question where they select their department. Then simply create a filter based on responses to that question and you can see if people in Sales really are more satisfied with the company than people in Finance.
Filter by Properties
Want to see if people who answered your market research survey on a Monday respond differently than people who answered on a Saturday? You can create a filter by the Response Date property to determine that. We collect the Response Date field for you, so no extra work on your part. (See, we do the work while you look smart).
Filter by Collector
If you want to send the same survey to different groups of people, you can create separate survey collectors. Say you have fans on Facebook, followers on Twitter, and readers on your blog (we know you’re popular!) and you want to see if there are differences in what type of content they want you to share. You can create one survey to gather input on content ideas that has three collectors: a Facebook collector for your fans, a weblink for Twitter, and an embedded survey for your blog. You can then review all your feedback in aggregate, or create a filter by collector and see how your fans, followers and readers differ.
So there you have it. Three ways to filter results so you gain better insights with each and every survey. Tell us how you like to slice and dice your survey results or if you want to learn more ways to analyze your results.
