Use Multi Question Survey

This article explains the procedure to create a Multi Question Survey Engagement.


A Multi-Question survey is a great way to capture user intent as part of user onboarding or collect targeted feedback on specific topics. With Multi Question Survey Engagements, you can create a survey with questions where the respondent can choose one or more answers from the options you define. A Multi Question survey is one of the most structured surveys and the fixed answer options make it easier for your customers to complete the survey.

In Gainsight PX, multi-question surveys can have two types of questions; Multi choice question and an Open Text question. Multi choice questions allow you to ask a question and also provide a set of answers. Users can select one or multiple answers. An Open question does not provide any options. Users must enter their answers.

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