Features

Users can:

  • Control text, questions, messages, choices, reports, graphs, images, colors, exports, code, emails, fonts, themes, sharing, panels, logics and blocks.
  • Use the integrated communication tools to send surveys and reminders
  • Collaborate in real-time and grant other Yale affiliates access to surveys and reports.
  • Translate surveys into 48 languages and then automatically deliver the questions in the recipients’ native tongue.
  • Use with EPI and EPHI records (approved and certified for use on September 13, 2011)
  • Integrate with SalesForce
  • Use the development API for integration with other applications
  • Take advantage of the iOS application for offline survey responses

Who can use it?

All Yale faculty, staff, and students as part of their research, teaching or the business of Yale.

How much does it cost?

The service is free to the Yale community, eliminating the need to use fee-based survey tools, such as Survey Monkey.

If an individual or department would like additional features that are not part of the University enterprise offering, they are able to purchase those modules on their own and get invoiced for them directly. Please contact ITS to assist with getting an estimate.

  4. Start building, customizing and sharing your surveys!
