With the help of test entries, we can collect test unit comments in addition to test data. It should be noted that with one click it is possible to delete test entries from the survey when they are no longer needed, but any comments on the questions are also deleted. Therefore, we recommend that you export and archive comments before deleting test entries. More >>
  • The logo change also applies to mobile devices. If you personalize the online survey with your logo, the setting you made for the survey on PC will also apply to the display of the survey on mobile devices. More >>
