    Quick Start-up Guide

    By now you would have learned what Zonka does. To get you acquainted with how all that is done we will briefly explain you some basic steps in this article that will help you get started with Zonka.

    Creating your first survey

    Surveys are built on the web panel. Once you design a survey, it will work both on the web using a URL as well as on Tablet/Mobile Apps by downloading them on Android/iOS devices. The web surveys are responsive and will work well on mobile phones, tablets, and different desktop resolutions.

    It is possible to create click-through surveys, multi-lingual surveys, rating based surveys and various other types of survey forms using Zonka Survey Builder. The WYSIWYG interface gives you complete control of display settings for tablets/mobiles surveys as well as web surveys.

    In order to create your first survey, follow these steps:

    1. Click on Setup drop-down menu on the dashboard.
    2. Then click on Surveys.
    3. Now click on Add New Survey button.

    You have an option to choose between templates and creating from scratch. Both template-based form and survey from scratch have the same abilities and everything is customizable.

    • Using Template
      In order to kick start with your own survey forms, you can take help from a list of pre-made templates. And later you can make edits in the templates as per your requirements.
    • Designing Survey from scratch
      You can also start building your survey from ground zero. Designing a survey with scratch gives you a blank canvas to build and fully customize your own survey.

    Viewing Responses

Similarly, the Urgent or Flagged filter will view the responses which were previously marked as urgent and flagged by the user.

Positive, Negative, Promoters, Detractors are some of the tags defined in the Response Inbox amongst others. Moreover, new tags can also be created and added by the user in the Response Inbox.

    Note: When you combine multiple tags or filters, only responses that meet all selected criteria are shown.

For taking actions on the responses visit Surveys from Setup drop-down on the dashboard. Then click on theAction drop-down menu for the desired survey. Add Task, Email Respondent, Add Note and Print are amongst many actions that can be taken from the Response Inbox.
