    It would be nice to be able to see the time spent on the survey, each page, and each question.

    1. Hanna J says:

      Hi Ailelie – That is a great suggestion. Thanks for your feedback. I’ve passed it along to our product team. Thanks, and have a great day!

    A doctor at BCCA asked me to complete a survey for one of his colleagues. The address I was given was http://www.surveymonkey/s/ovarian_gol_wtp_eng but I always end up at
    Can you tell me how to proceed?

    1. Hanna J says:

      Hi Sharon – It appears the link he gave you was not the correct one. You’re going to need to have the doctor log in to his SurveyMonkey account, and re-copy and paste you the link. Thanks, and have a great day!

      Hi Zoran – We think you’re very good too! Thanks, and have a great day.

    It would be really good if answers could be scored –

    is that a possible ? will it come ?

    1. Hanna J says:

      Hi John – We’re not entirely sure what you mean by scoring answers. Can you give us a bit more information? Thanks!

    1. Hanna J says:

      Hi Mahmood – We’re so glad you’re interested in surveys. They’re our passion too. We’ll continue to post about all things survey, so check back in for the latest. Thanks!

    I would like to see full link cloaking, so that I can send respondents to a survey at my domain url, swap it for a Surveymonkey url, but still have them see my domain url.

    1. Hanna J says:

      Hi Paul – That’s a great suggestion! I’ve passed it along to our product team. We currently offer our our survey white label URL,, which is available with the purchase of our Platinum plan. You also have full brand control and have the opportunity to redirect respondents to your site once they’ve finished your survey. For more information, check out this help center article:

    i am sorry for my self. SurveyMonkey is not what i was after for my work i spend my hard earned dollars and not much more. My questions are not to improve my work. how ever my concern was natural nature Mother Earth. and what are we going to do about it. If SurveyMonkey can give me my money back it will be good if not it will be still good. thank you

    1. Hanna J says:

      Hi Spase – I’m sorry if we’re not meeting your needs. If you have a billing issue you can email They will do their best to take care of you. Thank you for reaching out!

  7. Will it be possible in the near future to automatically translate your survey (done in English) into French, Spanish, Chinese etc.? That would be extremely handy.

    1. Hanna J says:

      Hi Lars – That is a great suggestion, but we don’t think we could do it well enough to make it worth the resources (if you’ve ever traveled abroad and used Google translate to communicate, you know what we mean). We are planning to offer translated version of Question Bank, however. We already have it in Dutch, Portuguese is scheduled to be released next week, and in time we will have Spanish, Japanese, Korean, and more. We’ll post about it here once we’re done, so check back in for the latest. Thanks!

    When i saw Logic Features i got excited for a minute until i realized it has nothing to do with Logic Models. Within non profit our surveys are suppose to connect with indicators and outcomes, if there was a way of creating a survey that would connect directly to the logic model, it would save us a lot of time.

    1. Hanna J says:

      Hi Risa – You’re right, that’s not the kind of Logic we’re talking about. It sounds like the feature you’re talking about would make for a very cool survey tool! We’ll keep you posted as to our newest developments, so check back in for the latest. Thanks!

  9. Debbie A says:

    It would be really nice if, when editing a question, it doesn’t jump back to the beginning of the questionnaire but stays on the edited question, saving lots of scrolling down!

    1. Hanna J says:

      Hi Debbie – We SO agree! That’s why our product monkeys are working on a fix for this. We hope (fingers crossed) it will be live this month. We’ll keep you posted! Thanks.
