Step 5: Edit Survey Strings

  • Let's go through an example together:

Survey Edit Example

  • As a default, your survey will have a header as "Please share your experience!" and a subheader as "The process is quick and easy! To begin, please complete the fields below."
  • Here's a tip! Use the Control F or Command F (for Mac) function to easily find this text on your survey strings. 
  • Now that you've seen the text you'd like to edit, you can input your desired text. For example, let's edit it to "Give Us your Honest Feedback".
  • Click the Save button on the top right.
  • Once you click Save, go back to your surveys tab, refresh and you should see the updated copy applied.
  • Ta-da, now the survey copy is updated!

What to be Careful Of

  • We don't suggest you make all the survey copy edits at once. Make a few changes, click Save, and review if it's been properly applied to your survey.
  • We cannot revert the survey copy edits you make. So, be careful by making a few edits and Saving often. 
  • There are specific copy that contains a variable such as the following. Do not edit the variable itself. 

Customizing the text on your GetReviews survey is a powerful way to ensure that it resonates with your audience and collects valuable feedback. By following the steps outlined above, you can create a survey that not only reflects your brand’s personality but also engages respondents effectively.
