Displays as a larger overlay window in the center of the page. The background content is greyed out so that your survey is the main focus.
As the first question type, select Statement from the dropdown menu.
The Statement question type allows you to invite website visitors to participate in testing. It does this by displaying custom text without providing a response field or answer choices. Statements contain a title field and an optional description field. For example, you could offer a prize to get a user's attention. For example, "Want to win a $20 gift card by helping us improve our site?"
Add further questions to better understand your testers and request their contact information.
Short text answer and Radio button question types are great for asking your users specific questions to see if they're the tester you're looking for.
