New Question Type: Introduction Questions

Today we’re very happy to announce a new feature in MARE to add to our list of survey question types.

Previously, we had the following question types available:

  • Multiple Choice
  • Multiple Choice with Other option
  • Multiple Select
  • Multiple Select with Other option
  • Text area answer
  • Net Promoter Score
  • Matrix list
  • 5 star rating
  • Gender

Many of our users have asked for the ability to ask an “introduction” question. Meaning that the first question of a MARE survey would ask the visitor whether they are willing to answer a survey.

You spoke, and we listened.

Introduction questions are the newest addition to our survey question lineup, and here’s how they work.


Example introduction question

The introduction question offers a visitor the choice to continue with the survey, or to close it.

If the visitor clicks on the top button, they will continue to the next question.

If the visitor clicks on the bottom button:


The survey will close immediately, and not reappear.

This question type will show up in your survey report in the same way as a multiple choice question does, and will break down the percentage of visitors who chose both options.

This will give you an idea of how many users are choosing to close the survey via the second button.

How to create an introduction question

To create an introduction question, you add a question like any other to a survey.

In the question type drop down box, the default is now the “Introduction” type:


When chosen, you can change the text on both of the buttons, or choose not to display the “No” option:


If you do not display a ‘No’ button, the visitor will still be able to close the survey with the down arrow in the top right hand corner of the survey. However, clicking on the down arrow will not prevent the survey from displaying again in the future.

What’s next?

We still have a lot of exciting new features planned out for MARE, and some of them will be getting completed in the next few weeks.

Stay tuned for the following:

  • Skip logic – the ability to make certain answers change the order of questions
  • Email optin questions
  • Exit surveys
  • Survey widgets
