In order for identifiable data about your recipients and senders to display within your reporting area, you first need to capture it. This would be done at the point that the email is sent, by including merge fields/variables from your system that you are sending the survey from within the Thermometer code.
The below will talk you through this section and how best to use it to your advantage.
If you are sending from your survey from Gmail or Outlook or if you do not have variables/merge fields available from the system you are sending from do not fear! Simply click here.
Underneath your data collection area, you have your response options. Here you can choose whether to enable a lockout and set your email alert notifications.
You can set up instant email alerts to be sent to internal recipients of your choice and you can choose to have them sent to different individuals depending on which colour response was clicked. Use the slider to enable or disable the alert and the text box to enter either a single or multiple email addresses.
Design your landing pages
It’s time to get those landing pages looking beautiful!

Response Drivers give you that extra piece of insight as to why a recipient has clicked on a certain icon. They allow you to really pinpoint the areas which need improving or rewarding within your business by classifying those essential pieces of feedback.
You can add up to 8 Drivers for your respondents to choose from and tailor these depending on the rating given.

You can also choose what colours you’d like your buttons to be so you can tailor them to your branding.
These are of course optional so you can leave this section blank if you wish.
When you’re ready hit the ‘Finish’ button… CONGRATULATIONS! Your survey is ready to go!
