    Would like to see the different options of using SurveyMonkey on my website. I.e. embed vs. popup. Or a live-demo server would be even better :-)

      Thanks for the feedback David! We’ll definitely keep it in mind!

    Evaluating to see if MonkeySurvey could do what we need. But. Cannot work out how to send the survey invitation link to the email addresses of the respondents.

    As with each system I have tried so far, I am hoping to eventually discover if I can get the report I need – which is, how each person answered each question. In Excel format. Problem is most surveys only tell you the proportion of respondents who gave each answer.

    Thanks :-)

  4. Steve Weeks says:

    OK! I found out how to send – using collectors. Now need to discover how the reporting works..

    I think you went a little bit too fast in your demo for a real beginner. We are sending out a ballot for a new VP and Directors and the instructions for inserting photos/images are very misleading and hard to follow. Is there a set of instructions hidden someplace that will give a better understanding of just how to insert the image without having to keep playing with the dimensions so you don’t have to keep saving, go check it out and then open the survey again to make changes until it fits the way you want it to? Thanks for your help!

      Hi Lori –

      Thanks for watching our video and the feedback. Here are the step-by-step instructions on how to insert a photo:

      Remember, your images can’t be larger than 50KB. More image tips:

    Creating a survey monkey is very essential to the members of this noble international organization, but i want to know why a basic member can not access the pages of collecting responses before upgrading to get the necessary procedure on how to get multiple responses from other body.

    1. Kayte K says:

      Hi there, thank you for your question! With the Basic plan, you have access to 100 respondents per survey with a 10 question limit. If you need to share responses, your best bet would be to upgrade to our Select plan. More info on our pricing here for you:

      Let us know if that helps and thanks for reading. :)
