Video: Customizing the design of your survey

When you create a survey here in SurveyMonkey, you always have the ability to click Preview Survey to see what it looks like in its current state. But there are some customizations we can apply to make this even more interesting. We're going to talk about those now. Beginning with at the very top of our first page where we've named this Questions. We have a second page--if you've been following along--that we've called Demographics. But here at the very top-left corner, it would be nice if we had a company logo, and in that case, we might want to change the title of our page. We do that by clicking Edit Page Options and selecting Edit Page Information.

Customizing the design of your survey

When you create a survey here in SurveyMonkey, you always have the ability to click Preview Survey to see what it looks like in its current state. But there are some customizations we can apply to make this even more interesting. We're going to talk about those now. Beginning with at the very top of our first page where we've named this Questions. We have a second page--if you've been following along--that we've called Demographics. But here at the very top-left corner, it would be nice if we had a company logo, and in that case, we might want to change the title of our page. We do that by clicking Edit Page Options and selecting Edit Page Information.

I will just highlight Questions and type over this. I'm going to type in the name of a company. When I click Save Page, I have a new title at the top. And now to go with that title, it would be nice if I had a company logo. If you have an image to experiment with, kindly follow along. I'm going to add a question which is going to be an image type question. I can do that by clicking at question and changing the type or go directly to the dropdown and choose Add Image. It adds a new question, and by default, the Question Type is selected as Image.

Now, I can add some additional item description or text at the top, but I already have it at the top of my page. So, I'm going to leave that blank. I'm going to change the name of this image just for my own purposes. Respondents won't see this, this is my company logo. All I have to do now is browse to it to find it, and right there on my desktop is my two trees logo. So, when I select it, and click Open, it becomes the image I'm about to upload when I click Save. Now, I will see it here on the page, but I don't really know what it looks like until I preview it. Clicking Preview again shows me that looks pretty good! I might like to change the theme though to something that matches better, and we can do that at any time.

At the very beginning, we selected a Theme. I chose modern Monkey. I'm going to go with something else, and you can experiment with these, something like Velvet, for example. I like it so far. Again, clicking Preview Survey allows me to really see what that looks like, and that's the one I'm going to stick with. So we'll close that up, and there's really nothing to save here. It's all saved on the fly. So we've made a couple of changes that really affect the look and feel and the overall theme of our survey.
