Use Boolean Survey

This article explains how to create Boolean Survey Engagement.


Boolean survey is a great way to measure basic satisfaction, whether it's a new feature or one of your core features. Boolean Survey Engagement asks the most basic question of your customers but also allows you to focus on the most important feedback question about your product or service. The survey format consists of one question and two predetermined answers, typically Yes/No. 

Example of a Boolean survey question: Did you like our new feature? Yes/No

Using Gainsight PX universal editor you will be able to create advanced in-app and email experiences to ensure customer satisfaction in your product and deliver a winning product experience.
