    5. e Select the type of your question and then add the question itself. Answers will be automatically generated. You can add up to 9 questions in one survey.

      There are 5-scale or 7- scale likert questions. This bipolar scale gives 5 or 7 different options ranging from one extreme to another for the users to choose from. They are best used to understand how your customers feel about your service or your product. Or when you want to know customers’ reactions on the product performance, on a new product features, or else. And when you want to evaluate their answers to get a holistic view of their opinions. In the Likert scale survey, the choice of answers ranges from very dissatisfied to very satisfied making it easy for you to evaluate the overall results.
