Design your survey - configure layout elements

We're retiring Surveys & forms

On 5 July 2021, Surveys & forms will be retired. You can continue to create surveys, forms, and even landing pages with our newer, easier-to-use and more flexible Pages and forms tool.

No need to panic - your existing surveys and forms will continue to work even after this date. Now is a great time to start building using the Pages and forms tool.

You can configure your survey's layout, making use of various elements that can be dragged in from the Build side panel:

  • Titles (H1), subtitles (H2), and section titles (H3)
  • Paragraphs
  • Images
  • Two- and three-column elements, which you can then drag other elements into

Titles, subtitles, and section titles

Choose the title format you wish to use from the left-hand side panel - either Title, Subtitle, or Section title - and click on the [ Type title here ] instruction to enter your text.



Drag and drop the paragraph element to give you the ability to add text to your survey. Click on the [ Type paragraph here ] instruction to enter your text.



Drag and drop the image element to to add an image to your survey, should you wish to.

Once dropped into position, click on the [ Select an image ] instruction to open up the image manager. From there, you can select an existing image or upload a new one.


Once an image is selected, you can configure it in the 'Image settings' side panel by aligning the image left, right or centre, plus you can enter alt text (good for those who can't see the image) and give the link a URL (which will open in a new browser window).

You can also click on Edit image (which will reopen the image manager) if you want to change or edit a selected image. 



Drag and drop either the two- or three-column element as a formatting tool for your survey.


Next, select and drag the element you wish to use into the desired container within your column element. Each possible container is clearly differentiated, with 'Drop your item here' displaying in each one.

When you drag your element over the area you wish to use, the receiving area will highlight so you can be sure as to where you're dropping it.


Once you've completed designing your survey, click on Save & continue in the top right of the main toolbar to move on to the next steps of the process: Choosing your survey settings and Sharing your survey.
