Quick Start: Survey Appearance and Settings

Survey Appearance and Settings

Checkbox includes a number of different survey configuration options in the Settings area. Some you may use often, others infrequently or not at all. We encourage you to test out the different settings but contact support if you have any questions about them prior to sending out your survey.  

1. Survey Style & Appearance

  • Click Settings -> Style to apply or change your survey's style template. This will change the color scheme, background images, and default fonts.
  • You can create your own custom Style templates, which can include your own logo/branding, in the main Styles ares. For more information, see our Branding Guide.
  • Click Settings -> Appearance to adjust other settings such as adding page numbers, questions numbers, a progress bar, and more. Feel free to test out these settings until your survey looks just right.

2. Other Survey Settings

  • Use Respondent Settings to set the Privacy Level of your survey and other respondent-level permissions.
  • Use Response Limits to set a start or end date of your survey, or response quotas.
  • Use Language/Translation to set your survey up in multiple languages (not available on trials or Basic plans)
  • Use Customize Text to customize the validation/error message and button text on your survey.
  • Use Admin Permissions to share your survey with other admin users on your account.
  • Use Advanced to add survey-wide JavaScript or CSS to your survey (not available on trials or Basic plans).
