Design survey sections can be used to gather feedback on design images, animated GIFs, videos, or audio files. Simply upload your media and enter the questions you'd like testers to answer about it.

Adding a design survey section

  1. From your dashboard, click +Create study, and then Test or survey

  2. Add a Design survey section. You can rename this section to help keep large tests organized if desired.

  3. Upload a design to your test.

  4. Add one or more follow-up questions to collect feedback on your design or media.

Test participants will be able to reference your image, video, or audio while answering your questions. Questions are shown in order by default, or you can enable the option just below your questions to randomize the order they're shown to your participants.

Viewing results

Results show average duration, raw response data, and a word cloud to help you quickly identify commonly occurring words. Multiple-choice responses will allow you to filter your results to show only the users who picked a particular choice, and all of the answers they gave on the other test questions.

If you used a Linear scale or Ranking question as a follow-up, you will see the mean of the responses in the bottom right corner of the section, rounded to two decimal places.

Common Questions

If you choose to include a design, what type of file can you upload?

  • Static images must be a JPEG, PNG or GIF, no larger than 5MB, and within the maximum height and width dimensions of 16000x16000 pixels.

  • Video files must be MP4 and no larger than 100MB

  • Audio files must be MP3 and no larger than 100MB

How are designs displayed to participants?

You can control the way your design will be displayed:

  • Unmodified images are shown at native height and width

  • HiDPI images are shown at half native height and width

  • Framed images are shown within a device of your choice

What can you test with question test sections?

Design survey sections are very versatile. While they are often used for testing digital media like icons or hero images, design survey sections are also used as basic surveys. What do participants believe is the topic of your book based on the title you provided? What are users' first impressions of an image of your physical product? What should you call the knowledge base on your website—or is it a help center? The possibilities are endless.

How long do participants have to answer the questions you asked?

Participants have as long as they like to view your design and answer the questions.
