How To Add A Progress Bar to Your Survey
Progress bars are a great addition to any survey that extends over more than one or two pages. They clarify to the respondent where they are in a survey, and how far they’ve got to go. We’ve seen numerous occurrences of people dropping out part way through a survey as they have no indicator of how much of it they’ve completed.
Progress bars are a feature of a ‘Presentation Template’ and can be switched on (or off!) and applied to every page of your survey.
Go to ‘Templates’ in the main menu bar. Now go to the ‘Presentation’ tab. Now either ‘Create New’ to create a new template or hit the ‘edit’ link on the right-hand-side to edit an existing template. In the edit screen, on the left-hand-side is a ‘Progress bar’ option. Select yes, and then choose the progress bar colour.
Remember to hit the ‘Apply’ button to save the changes.
Your progress bar will now be automatically applied to your survey:
NOTE: Making changes to a presentation template will affect the look and feel of any survey instance that uses that template.
