Rating question

Want to know your customers’ opinions about your product or service? Or how much your friends liked your last party on a scale of 1 to 5? A rating question is a simple and visual way of rating things.

Rating and Ranking questions - although their name and functionality are similar - can be used for different purposes:

  • Use the Rating question to compare different items on a common scale, for example, to ask people how much they like a celebrity on a scale of 1 to 5.
  • Use the Ranking question to compare different items to each other, for example, to rank people’s most and least favorite celebrities.

You can also write a description by clicking and typing where it says "Write your description here".

Rating settings

Edit the settings for your Ratings question in the Question tab of the right-hand sidebar.
