Can I test a survey locally on localhost?
Yes, you can, if there is SmartCode installed on the page and the pattern matches the URL. Please be informed that VWO does not support running a test on the localhost directly. It should be a valid domain name. Hence, for this, you will need to go into your /etc/hosts file and change the following line as: “127.0.0.1 localhost” to: “127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.com”
Can I have a different theme for my survey?
Yes, VWO comes with 10 pre-defined themes that you can use to create beautiful contemporary surveys.
Does VWO Surveys work on secure https webpages?
Yes, if the domain you define is a secure HTTPS webpage, VWO Surveys will work there. Not just this, VWO Surveys will also work on HTTP webpages.
How does quota consumption work for surveys?
For VWO surveys, visitor quota is utilized from your Insights data and visitor count is considered for every successful submission. This quota is the number of survey responses that a customer buys.
If a visitor starts taking the survey but leaves it without submitting the form, the quota will not be utilized. You can check the survey quota consumption in the SETTINGS > ACCOUNTS > USAGE section.
Quota consumption for surveys does not depend on your account visitor sampling. For every successful survey submission, one visitor count shows on the report.
Can I trigger a survey once a visitor scrolls down a page?
Yes, VWO Surveys allows a user to trigger a survey if a visitor scrolls a certain amount on a page. A user can define the number of pixels or percentage of page height a visitor needs to scroll either from the top or bottom of the page to trigger a survey. The percentage of page height is useful for webpages with a fixed height. For infinitely scrolling pages such as search results on an e-commerce webpage, actual pixels scrolled is a more reliable way.
To know more about adding triggers, refer to Adding Triggers for Surveys in VWO.
What does the survey preview show?
