Presenting surveys

A survey is a group of activities that participants respond to at their own pace. Surveys can be activated and displayed on your response page, embedded into a PowerPoint/Keynote/Google Slides presentation, or can be shared with a dedicated link for participants to complete on their own time.

This article addresses presenting surveys before a live audience.

Things to keep in mind


You won’t see responses to individual questions on a survey. Rather, the survey tracker live chart shows the audience’s progress through the survey.

Survey tracker

As audience members complete questions, the live chart shows their progress through the survey. The bar graph shows individual participants progress. At the bottom of the chart a summary tells you how many surveys have been completed and how many are still in progress.

Note: If you’ve setup your survey to display on a single page, then the live chart presentation view will show when surveys are completed, but will not show audience members’ progress through the survey.

Visual Customization

Unlike the visualization charts for individual questions, there are not currently any customizations available for the Survey tracker chart. It is always green on white.
