Adding Browse Question Type To Your Survey

A browse question type in a survey is a question that allows respondents to browse among a series of images or videos from one’s system, generally shown as images or videos, before picking their answer. This type of question is typically used in surveys involving a product or visual features, such as market research or user experience studies.

  • To add a browse question type to your survey on SurveyPoint, open the workspace and click on “Create a new survey +”. You can also use our pre-made templates if you don’t want to start a survey from scratch.
  • You can also open an existing survey that you have created on your workspace to add this question type.

  • Open your survey to get started.

  • Click on the “+” button, present on the top right corner of the sidebar. 

  • Once you click on it, you’ll be able to see several question types offered by SurveyPoint.
