Common Questions

How do I add multiple surveys for specific sessions, speakers, or other items?

Typeforms can be added to your event app in a variety of ways, including in a Web Link or Web List feature, as an external link, or in an announcement.

How can I pass user information from the app to the survey?

If you want to auto-fill some of the information in your Typeform survey with data from your Socio event, you can do that! We provide a list of variables that you can add to your Typeform survey as Variables. Once the Variables are ready, make sure you check the Pass Data to URL box in the Web Link that leads to your Typeform. Since the Typeform values and the information format that Socio send will match, the information will flow into Typeform.

If you'd like to save some work, we've got some Typeform templates we can share with you! Simply start a live chat with us using the bubble in the bottom right corner of this screen, and let us know you'd like the Typeform templates. 📜

Pro tips! 😎 

  • Use an announcement to bring attention to your survey. Link directly to your survey from the announcement to make it easy for your attendees to complete it! Want more info on announcements? Check this out. If you don't use an announcement, have your last speaker mention it!

  • Keep your survey brief, and ask only as many survey questions as you need to achieve your goal. You'll have a higher rate of completion, and your attendees will thank you.

  • If you are using a Web List or Web Link feature for your survey(s), toward the end of your event, move the icon to a more prominent spot in your event app. 

  • Don't forget to test your survey from the app! Have someone outside the project take your survey. Take a look at your survey reports. Read your survey out loud. A little time spent here can save you a lot of headache later. 

  • Does your event include Continuing Education Credits? Instead of using paper, consider moving that to Typeform! Reach out to us for more info. 👍
