This article explores creating a new survey in qualer. Additional information can be found here: https://qualer.freshdesk.com/support/solutions/articles/6000199550-survey-module-improvements 


To access a list of surveys (or start one from scratch), add /surveys to the end of the company url like atommare.qualer.com/surveys.


Click on a survey name to view more information or click Create to make a new survey:


Start by adding a title, link ID, status option, and starting number at a minimum. Here's an explanation of the fields:

  • Name: what you want to see the survey name as when you view the /surveys link
  • Title: the name the survey submitter sees
  • Prompt: explanation of the survey to the submitter
  • Link ID: custom name that is a backend link for qualer
  • Starting Number: when a survey is first submitted, what it's number should be. This can be the same number for every survey created.
  • Allow Anonymous: the submitter's name will not be recorded
  • Show Progress Bar: shows how far along you are in the survey

  • Status Options: first line is the default option the survey falls under. To add more options, hit enter on the keyboard and type in a new status option. If a survey could potentially be turned to a work order in the end, make sure the last status is "Complete" so when the work order is in the completed status, the survey ticket will automatically be changed to the Complete status as well. If someone should be notified when a certain status is selected, add | then the user's email address. Add another | if there are multiple emails that should be notified.
  • Confirmation Message: message right before the survey is officially submitted
  • Thank You Page Message: message when the survey is officially submitted

Click Create Questionnaire when ready.
