Pros: This software doesn't have to be limited to creating feedback surveys. I actually use it to create online forms for my non-profit. I have a lot of volunteers who want to come and I needed a way to create easy-to-use forms for them to fill out and give me the info I need from them.

I started out using the "free" package and even under a pre-designed form, the software will allow you to go in and make changes to better reflect your needs. Just make sure you don't exceed the number of questions on the form or it will ask you to upgrade to a paid package.

Because I work for a non-profit, once I was able to prove that I am indeed non-profit and advertised for SoGoSurvey on my website, they actually allow me to use the next level paid plan for free!

I am very happy with SoGoSurvey and plan to continue using the software.

Another awesome feature is that our volunteers can be English/Spanish speaking and SoGoSurvey has the option of choosing the language for the survey at the click of a button. This is such a key feature and I love it. (you will have to be able to speak the language you create the forms in, SoGoSurvey doesn't actually translate the content for you.)

Cons: I think navigating the actual site takes some getting used to. Once you are in a form, keep in mind that you will only see the form "on top" of the pile. What this means is there is a number counter, and you must click the drop-down arrow to see the other numbers of other surveys in order to review your responses. I think this could be improved, I would especially like to see the name of the person who filled out the survey used as an indicator in the "pile" of responses, rather than just a number. Also, when I print survey results it can take up to 6 pages with a narrow column of data, rather than 3 pages where the data takes up the entire page. It would be nice if this could be adjusted.

Overall: I work for a non-profit and I use SoGoSurvey to create online forms for volunteers to fill out and give me more information about them. I researched so many forms companies and didn't like how tedious the forms were to fill out online, or the price they were charging. (Most charge a monthly rate, and the volume of forms I will use each month didn't justify the cost.) With SoGoSurvey, filling the forms is simple and someone on a mobile device can do it as easily as someone sitting at a computer. The forms generated are clean, easy to read and allow some flexibility if you want to change up the design. I created a form using SoGoSurvey for my volunteers to give me basic info; then I created another form that volunteers can provide me with more background info and leave answers to open-ended questions. Finally, I have a reference form that I can email references. SoGoSurvey has made my job easier without sacrificing the quality/look of my forms. Best of all, it is free! If you are looking for a good forms software, give SoGoSurvey a try!

SoGoSurvey combines outstanding features with top-notch, responsive customer support.

Pros: We use SoGoSurvey because it offers the following key features, some of which are not available with other survey platforms:

1) the ability for respondents to print out their responses once they're finished

2) the ability for respondents to save and return later to finish longer surveys

3) the ability to either generate a multi-use survey link OR send individual invitations, thereby allowing for tracking of respondents; reminders can also be sent just to those who have not responded

4) a large number of question types, including advanced, multiple-part grids

5) skip logic and advanced branching functionalities

6) advanced reporting capabilities

7) highly competitive pricing for nonprofits/educational organizations

The interface is fairly easy to use, and the customer support is FANTASTIC; SoGoSurvey support professionals respond quickly and always provide helpful assistance.

Cons: The skip logic/branching interface can be a bit difficult to use, depending on what you're trying to do. For example, the advanced branching feature has no "hide/skip page" option and therefore requires an expert level of proficiency in branching logic in order to create more complex surveys. It would be so much easier if you could simply have respondents skip certain pages based on their responses, rather than creating a complex web of logic rules to accomplish this. Luckily, this is likely not an issue for the majority of survey users.

Overall: SoGoSurvey allows us to evaluate our educational training and initiatives in a way that other survey tools simply cannot do. Some of our surveys are fairly complex, with many opportunities for branching respondents either to or away from certain sections based on their earlier responses; SoGo enables us to do that. There are also 17 basic types of reports--most of which we don't need for our purposes, but they're available--and the ones we do use are highly customizable and nicely formatted. With certain key tweaks to the branching feature--specifically, adding a "hide/skip page" rule to make branching logic easier to create--it could be THE number one survey tool on the market, hands down.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you are struggling to figure something out, contact SoGoSurvey support--really! Your message doesn't get lost in cyberspace; they always respond promptly and will do everything they can to help you. For example, when I was confounded by the skip logic/branching functions for a particularly complex survey, a tech support person went so far as to create a whole survey template with the proper skip logic rules for me. All I had to do was change the content!

I am relieved and glad I found this platform, especially since they offer free student package.

Pros: This review is on version 8.0 of SoGoSurvey. The layout and design are user-friendly in the sense of allowing you to customise the survey design and questions. The variety of questions ranging from standard multiple choice, grid options such as matrix grid, radio grid, check box grid; there are also rating scales, this allows you to chose the best option for what you want to get out of, which was helpful since I had complex complex questions that needed to be asked in different ways. The layout, type & text the look and feel in the visual settings section. There are predesigned templates you can chose from or edit it yourself by going into the menu bar on right, where you can edit the font(size, font type). The background option in the side menu allows you to choose from a variety of different background or you could include your own image as a background. I found the interactivity of the platform easy to understand, the icons, editing was made easy since you could paste your questions from Microsoft Word or another online survey platform and did not need to retype them.

The basic package is a good way to introduce someone to the platform, since its free it allowed me to see the features, layout and questions offered as well as what is offered in plus or pro packages. In addition to being mobile friendly as well since the participants of survey I did and am doing are more likely to view and answer the survey on their mobile phones.

Cons: I have only used the basic package which is free, I used this package since its free yet it does not include some of the options the paid packages do. Question options such as the matrix grid, radio grid as well as advanced question options such as placing an attachment, rating radio button,rating drop down and horizontal radio are only available in the paid versions such as pro,plus and enterprise. If you want complex questions in the basic package that ask multiple thing such as matrix grid that has multiple choice and or rating scale, you need to use predesigned templates and edit the questions. You can also paste your questions from Microsoft Word or another survey platform into the survey but you will need to edit it, choosing the question type first then pasting the question in and the different options when you select edit.

Since I used the free package I could not include my own logo. If you want to upload your own background image in the side menu bar in the visual settings section, it needs to be a jpeg, png or gif, not a pdf. You also cannot adjust the position and scale of this uploaded image, suggesting that simple or background images that are abstract are best. In addition the basic package does not include report export options such as excel and Microsoft Word.

Overall: Benefits I received were applying for a free year student option that offered features such as export report, analysis of data, complex questions (features of plus package), in addition to customising which personalises survey to specific topic. Other benefits include fast and helpful customer support, there is a instant message section at bottom of page called 'Chat with us', allowed me to ask questions and receive answers quickly. The layout, editing and design features made it easy for me to edit, place questions, the templates of surveys gave me an idea of layout and questions which allowed me to use it as a guide but edit accordingly.

Pros: Survey Questions

Currently 16 different types of survey questions are available (e.g. matrix grid, Intellimatrix, demographic text boxes and even file attachments). Those can be easily modified in up to 20 different ways.

User Friendliness

It's incredibly easy to build your survey. From the question types menu on the left side you just drag one of them into your dashboard and that's it. Each question type also has a little preview, so you can already see what they look like before using them. There is also a question bank where you can choose predefined survey questions or save your own ones.

You can also easily share one survey with other accounts. So it's easy to copy a survey or to work together on one. They also make it very easy for you to distribute your survey social media websites, regular websites, vial email and even via text messages.

Language Support

I think 37 languages are currently supported. So your survey can be displayed in many different languages. That was one of the main reasons why I chose this survey platform because I needed mine to be in Korean.

24/7 Customer Support

Whenever you have a question, SoGoSurvey tries to answer within an hour. On average it took them only 15 minutes to offer help and answer my questions.

Data Export and Reports

Your survey can be exported in eight different file formats (Excel, CSV, HTML, Word, XML, SPSS, Access, Sogo1). Many other survey platforms offer far less than these.

Cons: Instructions

Although, video tutorials are provided, I think some of the instructions could be a little bit more precise. For example, if you use a trial version, only 100 responses are allowed or in order to have an introductory text that only appears on the first page you have to insert a comment box.

Mobile Phone Layout

If you have a survey with a matrix grid (e.g. Likert scales) it is difficult to answer because the question uses a lot of size of your screen, whereas the space for the answer buttons are really tiny. Hence, you always have scroll a lot.

Korean Language not available on the Main Language Page

On my main language page I wanted to add a comment in Korean. However, the language is not supported so that only question marks appeared.

Overall: I needed a tool to conduct an online survey for my Bachelor's thesis. Therefore, I was reading a lot reviews and tried to compare features among various online survey tools. SoGoSurvey sounded like a superior product at the price point where it is. Hence, I though I'll give it a try.

So far I've had an excellent experience, simply because I was able to include everything I needed in my survey with ease. If I got stuck their customer service helped immediately.

Overall I would recommend SoGoSurvey to my fellow students, particularly for the vast amount of features, great support, user friendliness, various data export options and beautiful designs.

Pros: I really liked that everything could be found in that page alone, rather than having to navigate from pages to pages like other survey tool that i have tried. The level of customization and user friendliness is astounding. I absolutely love that everything could only be a click away. I believe that it saves a lot of time, as it does not take long to watch the video tutorials and wait forever for the customer technical support to reply. I could get my questionnaires done and sent out in a day if i wanted to! I absolutely love the customer technical support. they take literally seconds to reply and provide you with helpful and precise instructions and solutions. The data exports and reports are great too, one need not worry about exporting reports and questionnaires, the formats and what not as they are easily done only a click away in a wide variety of export formats, which does not pose as a problem at all!

Cons: I've only tried the free basic package and i found that the free features given were a little too limited.

Overall: As a researcher, i always found that data collection as well as analysis was always the most tedious thing in research, and i have always dreaded the process. However, it all turned around when i came across SogoSurvey. I actually get excited to further explore Sogosurvey. I read the reviews, and have heard good comments from fellow friends in the research field. Everyone recommends it! Though i have only tried the free basic package only, it was good enough to get me hooked on the ease of the whole thing and ultimately willing to get the plus or pro package. I absolutely love the customer support, i have never gotten such good and quick help from customer support in other survey platforms. I am extremely relieved that i came across Sogosurvey, after trying other survey platforms, i definitely choose Sogosurvey in a heartbeat!

Comments: I am a Senior Lecturer at the University of South Africa (UNISA). As part of my academic citizenship, I am responsible for collating reports on students' postgraduate progress on a six-monthly basis. The primary objective is to increase the M & D throughput rate. To achieve this objective, the Higher Degrees (HD) committee has elected to eradicate the paper-based cumbersome system in favour of an online automated system that is simpler and less time consuming for both students, supervisors and the administrative staff of the HD committee. The student reports assist in ascertaining what problems students may be experiencing in terms of their research and with their supervisor/co-supervisor, identifying remedial actions to address student problems in terms of training opportunities, escalating serious issues to the HD committee for intervention if necessary and to serve as an impetus for students to progress with their studies. The supervisor reports assist in determining the lack of progress from students, identifying remedial actions to address student problems in terms of training opportunities etc, identifying remedial actions to address supervisor problems in terms of training opportunities, co-supervision, online mentoring etc, escalating serious issues to the HD committee for intervention if necessary (e.g. problem students), and to prompt supervisors to improve their supervision skills. Various tools were investigated in terms of ease of use, cost, reporting features, etc. and the survey tool, SoGoSurvey was deemed suitable for the reporting system. 29 Questions for Students and 15 Questions for supervisors have been created. The reporting system was implemented in 2016 on the plus plan and was extremely successful. I created the survey which is actually a reporting system and found that students and supervisors found this system to be extremely efficient in contrast to the manual word documents we had. I could easily send reminders to students and supervisors regarding non-submissions and could also extract the unique survey URL's for students that did not receive the invitations. It was also possible to draw meaningful reports and statistics from the system. This greatly reduced administrative overhead and I received instantaneous support from the SoGoSurvey team. We will continue with the system this year although we would like to upgrade our package to take advantage of additional features.

Pros: The user friendly interface of the software, the instantaneous support and the ease of drawing reports. I used this SoGoSurvey as our PostGraduate Reporting system for both students and supervisors. I investigated several options and found SoGoSurvey the easiest to use. If students did not receive their invitation, I could send them the unique URL for their survey report. I was also able to send three reminders to both the students and supervisors to complete their reports. For the supervisor reports, I sent a survey invitation for every student they supervise and this enable me to track how many supervisors completed their reports. I found the report generation feature extremely useful and I was able to draw reports on the fly for presentation to management according to their specifications of what was required. Unfortunately, I was on the plus plan and had restricted functionality but this did not in any way hamper my use. Unfortunately, I could not populate the surveys with the details such as student number, etc for the supervisors because of the limited access. Also, supervisors and students could not save the survey as this option is not available on the plus plan. However, both students and supervisors could save their submissions as pdf files which is very useful. Generally, I was highly impressed with SoGoSurvey and wish to use it again for our reporting system.

Overall: Ease of use, the ability to track submissions, the ability to generate reports in various formats, the single URL key feature where it is possible to e-mail a person their unique URL, the ability to print the report as proof of submission and the reminder functionality where it is possible to send reminders to invitees regarding their non-submission.

Comments: To finish my study of animal sciences, I am writing a master thesis on the subject of 'Parasite management in Austrian sheep production'. Me and my supervisors decided to distribute a online questionnaire to sheep breeders in Austria. The reasons were the easier and safer distribution compared to dispatch by mail, and the fact that I don't have to digitalise it myself to transfer them into the program for statistical analysis.

I have been searching for a online survey tool for months, but none of the providers I found, could suit my requirements. One the one hand, the software should allow me to create a professional questionnaire although I am technically not advanced. The more professional and reliable a survey is, the more the respondents are encouraged to answer all questions, I think.

On the other hand, I am a student with limited budget and my thesis is not part of a big university project, so my department does not pay for the subscripition fee. The costs for the software therefore should be preferably free.

Most of the providers (SurveyMonkey, umfrageonline.de, etc) have free trials, but the upgrades are mostly expensive. The fees per month are not affordable for me, and the billing for every response seems counterproductiv, because I want to get as many responses as possible, and can`t pay for every single one, due to my limited student's budget.

After I was really desperate on the search for a provider meeting my requirements, one of my colleagues recommended me SoGo Survey, because they offer a professional account for students for free. My colleague had positive experiences with the software. I was very happy and immediatly signed up for the basic account. I began to create my questionnaire, and found out that the tool is easy to use, the result looks very professional, even suitable for academic interests. An additional feature that I couldn't find at any other survey software, is to run reports on the responses. This is interesting during the survey, and will also be useful for the statistical analysis afterwards. Furthermore, the data can be exported easily to excel, csv, xml or spss, word or html!

I am glad to use SoGo Survey and looking forward to distribute my questionnaire and get lots of responses! I highly recommend SoGo Survey for everyone, especially for students like me. Thanks to http://www.sogosurvey.com/ !!

Pros: I have being using SoGosurvey for about two years now. During these years I have developed dozens of different questionnaires, within different levels of complexity. I use them mainly for my phd research, where I develop different types of behavioural tests. I must say that I am still quite happy with the service. I've seen that the SogoSurvey platform has evolved quite a lot within the last couple years, so it is definitively a service that keeps a constant upgrade policy. Hence, the resources to implement efficient surveys are always getting better and better. The graphics interface has also improved quite a lot. Customer's service is fast and 24/7. I am based in Europe, and always get quick answers when I have a specific inquiries, which is simply fabulous! The sogosurvey servers are quite stable. I have worked with other systems (such as Qualtrics), which usually rely on the university's servers, and therefore are significantly less stable. Finally, I can tell you that I will keep on using such services for a longer period time. I am very grateful of having found SoGoSurvey. The other ones available in the market won't go as smooth as this one. Of course, it is also important to mention that Sogosurvey offers special price ranges for students (like, free subscription...!), which is very convenient for researchers that are starting their careers. Cheers!

Cons: Still some features to include, such as randomisation of pages.

Overall, I find that the interface could be improved, but in general it is quite easy to handle.

Overall: Free account for student, and outstanding customer support.

Always quick answering and suggestions.

Pros: Full featured, free for charity, professional look and feel. Like that you can ask more than 10 questions. Like the grid style questions. Like the "if logic" to fork the survey. Like that I can customize/brand the header. Language translation section is critical for our organization.

Cons: Like the software a lot and appreciate that as a charity, SoGoSurvey gives us the full version for free. Unfortunately though the hurdles to getting the service are more than the value we get out of the tool. The free version is a one year plan for which we put a logo on our website all year and like the company on facebook. We are a small all volunteer parent organization and send out a survey once a year. We can barely train people on which logins to use let alone consistently use and support the same online tools. To lock our account each year until we send an email to customer service and have to fill out surveys / more product advertising is nearly a time-prohibitive hurdle to having our organization continue to use the software. Sorry to sound entitled and thankless but it just takes too much hand-off to keep this account working smoothly for our group.

Overall: Surveys for our organization.

Pros: The social sciences, as well as the disciplines related to trade and finance, build their research, results and conclusions using the different types of surveys. The SoGoSurvey platform offers a wide range of templates with their respective questions with a suitable format for the surveys, as well as the most common questions and answers, and the best thing is that it offers personalized design options, which allows you to distribute your surveys by different media. Then, complement your research with the reports module, which will allow you to analyze the data quickly and in real time through the reports module which can generate results in graphics, or if you wish, in diagrams of high professional level , which can be adjusted to your needs and requirements.

Cons: Every good system, in any field, must be checked according to the real needs of the organizations, since, although there is a "basic" version of this system, which is free, it is important to evaluate if it is possible to cover all of them. and each of the corporate needs. In general, these versions are very limited, so it is advisable to contact the support staff, who are always attentive to your requirements.

Overall: Save time and effort with the best results in your business

Pros: Cost-friendly

Wide range of features

Great customer service

Cons: Some missing features

Limited skip-logic options

Sometimes, the UI is confusing

Overall: Previously, I was subscribed to another survey site (which I shall not name). However, due to their recent transition to an annual payment term, I decided to look for another option. I'm currently writing my thesis and I will only be using this kind of service for a set amount of time (possibly 4-6 months only). That is how I found SoGoSurvey. I read through the features and monthly cost, I was impressed and decided to subscribe to the site.

Next is customer service. I am subscribed to several sites online (i.e. Amazon, Origin, Steam, etc.), and I have to say SoGoSurvey is the best I've ever experienced. I had a problem with loading the site previously and sent a ticket. Within minutes I get a response with complete instructions and support on how to resolve the issue.

The only complaints I can think of at the moment are probably the UI, and some missing features. I was kinda disappointed that skip-logic feature for Plus members was limited to 7 questions only - had to make a workaround for it. It would also be nice to have a multiple list with ranking option type of question. As for the UI, its good but I think it could be better.

Overall, I am satisfied with SoGoSurvey and I'll be more than happy to recommend it to my researcher friends or even at work.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you are looking for a good survey software with a multitude of features, you may want to give SoGoSurvey a try. It is intuitive (once you get used to the UI), cost-friendly, and has great customer service support. I'm happy I made the switch to this site.

Comments: Sogo Survey is a very good program that I have not found almost mistakes, it has benefited me a lot in my work area, since I have been able to provide better elaborated surveys and better explicit results, this has helped the innovations of our services.

Pros: What I like most about Sogo Survey is the way in which the graphs are implemented at the time of completing the questionnaire. A circular graph is shown where each person's responses are specified by percentages from positive to negative. This has greatly facilitated the understanding of their features and functions.

Cons: Sogo Surveys has an application for mobile phones, clearly for this app you can not perform surveys, but you can see statistics and percentages of surveys previously completed, the problem is that the percentages are totally different from those shown in the Sogo website.

Pros: What I really like about SoGo Survey is: 1) That you can create very professional-looking surveys and customize them as you like. 2) That it is quite intuitive and easy to use once you get used to the main functions and understand the terms they use to refer to each feature. 3) That it saves you tons of time on data analysis. 4) Last but not least, that they offer us students the possibility of using the software free of charge, thus saving us a lot of time and effort and ultimately boosting our research work For me, it's been a must during my PhD :)

Cons: The thing I like the least is the branching restrictions. I would love it if I could branch several questions on the same page. Also, the restrictions to the number of question display conditions you can set are also a bit annoying when you're trying to target a very specific population.

Overall: Data retrieval via survey for my PhD is faster, more convenient, more accurate, and much more professional.

Comments: SogoSurvey has given me a better comfort when sending surveys to clients, it has also given me some business advance, since I have managed to diversify the questions with polls or quizzes.

Pros: What I like most about SogoSurvey is that it not only dedicates itself to the elaboration of surveys, but as secondary areas, it offers the facility of carrying out short questionnaires, quizzes and polls, in this way I can diversify the areas where I can question clients that consume my products or services.

Cons: I do not like the prices of SogoSurvey, I consider that this is a very good software and that it has interesting functions, but its prices should be lower and more consistent since the questionnaire area is very comprehensive and necessary for any company, be it small or big.

Pros: SogoSurvey has grown into a premier survey package that can meet the needs of any nonprofit organization. I am very impressed with the comprehensiveness of board and staff evaluation templates, and the ease with they can be customized.

I have tested several online survey tools, but none of them seem to balance the needs of business, academia, and nonprofits in the way SogoSurvey does. Designed with the corporate sector as the target market. In this regard, SogoSurvey is very well-balanced!

My experience with customer support, though very limited, has been very responsive.

Cons: No major cons in my experience using SogoSurvey. However, it is not as intuitive as I would like; some steps in the survey creation process take a bit longer. Perhaps it's because I am using the basic version. That will likely improve in subsequent releases, or with a higher version.

Overall: Free Annual Nonprofit License.

The best Survey tool.

Pros: Its easy to use and interactive user interface.

Free plan includes many features that others don't provide.

Mobile view supported.

Can ask 30 question's.

Questions can be from the selected list or your own.

Cons: Using still haven't figured out any cons yet will do post if any cons identified.

Overall: My requirement for an easy to use survey platform was just met by Sogosurvey..Being a biomed student,our hospital management subject required patient satisfaction survey for a hospital as an important assignment.So I had to go through many survey sites but didn't find any of them that interesting ,easy to use as a begineer and effective.

After a couple of search on the internet I came across Sogosurvey tool. I must say this is indeed a user interactive tool. From the person creating the survey to the person filling the survey, everyone will find it comfortable to use.The key features that got my interest into sogo survey were: Free basic plan with those 30 questions which is the best available when compared to other tools. From their own set of questions to your own set of questions you are free to use anything you require and I feel their set of crafted questions just get you unbiased answers.There is nothing so complicated using it as a begineer.You just have to drag and drop the required items and start building.Color scheme and color template are the best features to use making it more interactive and yes you can also save your templates for further use.The best part is you can also make it available and design it for mobile view too.There are also features like what to display when the survey expires and thank you page, various add-ons,print your survey wich helps if its an assignment as in my case .Your survey can even be shared to your friends,teachers using email or social media sites.

Sogo survey is my only choice for surveys from now..

Comments: I have benefited strongly from the use of SogoSurvey in my work area, since I had many problems before that some opinion polls were not understood, and thanks to the technology with which SogoSurvey works, it is perfectly understood.

Pros: What I like most about SogoSurvey are its functions, since other platforms do not have them, they are unique functions that explain very well the results of a survey using graphs and percentages that increase understanding.

Cons: I do not like the relationship that SogoSurvey has between price-functions, since they have totally exaggerated with the prices, I would like them to decrease the prices a little for a better accessibility to the plans they offer.

SoGo Survey is great for collection of information across our constituent base.

Pros: The ease of use customizing the surveys and the ease of dowloading results to word or excel. You can manipulate the information for any purpose needed. The fact that you can delete the information after you have retrieved saves a lot of confusion.

Cons: The fact that we don't get notifications when new surveys are received. It would be very helpful if there were notifications and not have to check SoGo Survey for new answers to surveys when they are received.

Pros: 1. Customer support is excellent! Emails typically reply back within a few min, occasionally it takes a few hours but never beyond a day.

2. It allows uploading of images using pdf or powerpoint which was very important for my survey.

3. Advanced branching allows you to take respondents to different algorithms.

4. There is an option for respondents to save and continue later, and for the enterprise version, responses may be autosaved.

Cons: 1. It is fairly costly for me.

2. Some respondents' responses were initially lost when I reviewed the survey and I had to write in to ask them to retrieve the responses which were fortunately retrievable.

3. You can only send automatic reminders to complete the survey three times after which you have to send manual reminders.

4. Ranking type questions don't support an "other" option to type in text.

5. Some surveys allow you to track which one of your respondents have answered the survey but ensures anonymity by not linking the response to the respondent. This software does not allow that, so it is not possible to remind or encourage individual invitees to respond.

Excellent graphs and other factors that help the quick understanding and facilitation.

Comments: I have benefited from the use of SogoSurvey because with this software I have managed to understand the opinions I receive, seeing them through graphics and knowing which opinions were positive and which opinions were negative.

Pros: What I like most about SogoSurvey is that it is a software that focuses on the understanding of the results, in this way they show results in graphic form and with many other factors that help to understand.

Cons: I do not like the prices of SogoSurvey, I think that these prices put them so high because their functions are very good and resulting, but I would like them to be lower and more accessible.

Comments: I've been having real trouble finding a simple easy and, most importantly cost effective way of arranging my study questionnaire and analysing my data for my dissertation. Having trawled the web looking at offerings from Survey Monkey, LimeSurvey, GoSci, to name a few, I was getting more and more frustrated, by either the cost involved in getting something decent to work with or the complicated way of accessing sites, or creating questions. In some cases all three!

sogosurvey.com/is really easy to use. Setting up the questionnaire couldn't be simpler. The variety of question formats meant I didn't have to completely restructure the questions I had already devised on paper.

The data analysis is also really easy to interpret, another important factor for someone who is not 'statistically minded. I am curious about the results of the verbatim report as my study is mixed methodology, I haven't got to using it yet, but if the rest of product is anything to go by it should simplify my task tremendously!!

The customer service via email is surprisingly quick and effective at providing answers to questions. While it may not be personal `on the phone support' I have been reassured by the speed of response, and actually prefer this as, being a mom of two, I am not always sat at my desk waiting for a phone call and I can deal with issues in my time.

For students there is a very cheap way of gaining access to all ofsogosurvey.com/ fab features, click the link below to find out more.

http://www.sogosurvey.com/pricing/Free-Student-Plans.aspx . If you already have ideas for your dissertation or are looking for ideas SoGo is definitely worth a look!

Comments: I have benefited from the use of SogoSurvey because I have managed to understand much more the opinion of each client, knowing in percentage, what they like and what they do not like about our services.

Pros: I like SogoSurvey because it is totally different from other platforms that offer the service of surveys, since this one in particular, focuses on graphically showing the opinions of people, sorts each opinion in graphs with percentages.

Cons: I have no complaints about SogoSurvey, this software has no errors, its prices are stable and accessible to anyone and its functions are truly innovative.

SogoSurvey technology does not focus only on questions and answers, but beyond that.

Comments: The use of SogoSurvey has made me change the way I evaluate the questions and answers, making them more formalized responses for my company and much more explicit.

Pros: What I like most about SogoSurvey is that the surveys are strategically designed to help you involve your participants, build trust and develop relationships, not just focus on questions and answers.

Cons: I do not like that SogoSurvey has such rare templates that do not go with the theme, since you can select a survey template ready to use or create your own, but the pre-designed ones do not have a very good design.

Comments: When I started to think about choosing a proper tool to do surveys that will benefit my PhD research, I have already decided to go for build up my online questionnaires. Several benefits can be obtained from this tool. It is a convenient and much easier method for both the researcher and respondents. It is also a method that can be circulated easily among respondents with much less time, effort and money than those required in traditional surveying methods.

In the last couple of years there have been many different online survey providers emerge. As a doctoral researcher into online media, it was really important to find one that not only had a rich feature set, but also a survey tool that didn't make the provider more prominent than the survey.

Although very early days in my own use of the product, SoGoSurvey has a full feature set that outstrips many of its competitors. It also advertises Google Analytics integration for adding further value to the resulting data-set and holds the necessary TRUSTe certificates for data protection compliance - something that is absolutely essential in the professional and academic research environment.

Based on my own very basic trial of the product, it appears to be an excellent alternative to Survey Monkey and with a fantastic promise of email support. It promises to provide a really flexible and responsive system with some key features to support the survey process and its responses.

It's too early for me to give a very detailed review but their website has a great checklist of the available features and it's easy to trial to see whether it meets your specific needs.

Cons: The number of options in the reporting the results of the survey is limited. Could be increased and more user friendly.

Overall: The soft ware is very user friendly except when using large volume of content. It is very affordable and effective. However the reporting could be more user friendly.

Recommendations to other buyers: The package is very affordable. There should be more options in relation to the reporting of results of the survey.

Hi Martin,

Thank you for your feedback.

I have asked Support Team to reach out to you to setup a demo to showcase the power of our online reporting. Some of the very powerful reports are available in the Pro and Enterprise packages.

PC Magazine rated our reports as "... the best of the bunch..." and we would love to show you why!

Thank you once again.

Pros: What I like most about SogoSurvey is that it does not compare with any other platform, since it is especially looking for ways to represent the results of a survey with an easy graph and several graphs to achieve a better understanding of each result in a questionnaire.

Cons: Actually I do not get any inconvenience with the use of SogoSurvey, however, I would recommend that they use a better design in the platform, the design is very important in the users that use it and provides a better stay.

Despite my initial challenges, I find SoGo Survey to be a very user-friendly program. Recommend it!

Pros: It was recommended that I use the free trial to become familiar with the service, while they continued to work on approving other issues, and to see how I liked it as well as whether or not I had any questions. Even though I was a beginner, and initially experienced several issues, to be fair, in just 3 weeks, I feel I am now quite the pro with SoGo Survey. lol. I find it to be a very user-friendly program after you get used to it. The support team is great --even through email. I will use them again.

Cons: I had to build each survey, even though I had previously existing surveys already created. There was no way around it and it was very time consuming while also trying to figure out their system and then, wait for responses back from them via email to continue.

Overall: This software helped me produce and launch my research study for my Dissertation. The survey looks professional and is high-quality. Overall, user-friendly even for a beginner like myself.

Student pricing is great. Very competitive product. Highly recommend!

The use of SogoSurvey is more expandable and with more accessories.

Comments: It has brought me certain benefits apart from the graphics and results, since I have managed to obtain a way of working each survey, making it much more diverse and attractive for each client.

Pros: I like that SogoSurvey is a platform that focuses on trying to provide a pleasant understanding to the client or consultant, in this way to better understand each result obtained.

Cons: I have no complaints about SogoSurvey, since its implementation, each of the features has been excellent, has not given me any error and no inconvenience.

Pros: I would recommend SogoSurvey software to everyone as it is easy to use, provides a student license as well, wherein almost every feature is available for free and the customer service experience is second to none. Specifically, designing the survey seems extremely easy using SoGo survey as there are multiple question options given in the simplest possible manner. I had been struggling to design a thorough survey and SoGo survey solved my issues. I would wholeheartedly recommend it for anyone out there.

Cons: The student license expires after a certain period, which is not exactly a minus point given that its the only software around that gives out a free package.

Comments: This is a great online survey & questionnaire tool that can be used as a student or organization. It has the latest software and most features such as response trend analysis, multimedia usage, online reporting and email support. Create free online surveys, forms, polls, and quizzes in minutes. Another bonus is that you can try it for free before spending money!

Pros: As a company, we do a lot of employee engagement survey's and customer surveys and SoGo is a great product that allows us to conduct them. We liked that there is a free demo and how it has an extremely user-friendly UI that is simple to navigate. I also appreciated that the software has reminders and updates to check for responses. The products tools are laid out well, easy for respondents to reply, and the reports were great! overall a wonderful and useful experience!

Cons: Our only problem with this survey software is when creating the survey's from scratch is a bit more challenging then it is when using a preset template, but that was expected. I would like to see more ease when creating a survey from scratch.

I am PhD student, using this software over a year. It is user friendly.

Cons: Some of its advance branching is bit confusing. More tutorials will be helpful. This is not though a major issue.

Overall: SoGoSurvey made it possible to adapt my survey questionnaire with its user friendly software. It is convenient and satisfying. I would certainly recommend this to my friends.

Comments: SogoSurvey's features allow me to create surveys that are simple or complex. While my inclination is to create a simple survey of yes/no questions, this is for my qualitative dissertation research. I will be drafting more complex questions that need skip-patterns, options for longer or shorter answers, and the ability to pause and save responses so the survey can be completed over time. I think that feature alone will boost the response rate to or beyond my stated goal and will result in more thoughtful and detailed answers. Though I won't be using piping for this survey, I love knowing that I have this feature as an option.

As a non-blogging student on a very limited budget, I appreciate having the option to buy a license for a fairly reasonable rate. I would suggest you determine exactly what you need first before choosing between a Plus and a Pro license (skip the Basic license altogether). If you are not sure, go for the Pro license. That one costs a bit more, but you won't spend the money on a Plus license and then have to spend another chunk of change on the upgraded license. With Pro you should have all the features you need to develop, implement, and analyze fairly complex survey data that will exceed even the strictest standards in most academic settings.

Finally, I'd like to give a shout-out to the webinar support staff. I signed up to take advantage of the additional support and Hamsi (I think that is his name) was patient and thorough and even made suggestions for how to improve my survey.

We adopted SoGoSurvey approximately two years ago and we have not regretted it once.

Pros: We love the flexible options of numerous types of questions/answer styles from text to rating grids, etc. We also absolutely love the ability to integrate with Word and Excel for reporting options. There is also a new Spring release that has added some nice features such as symbol rating, Captcha, etc. There are also more customization options than before. The company has listened to feedback and is improving an already good program. We feel that this software is much, much more flexible than what we were using before. We use the software for more than just surveys. It can be used for simple testing, online applications, etc.

Cons: I used to dislike the large asterisks on required questions, but in the latest release that has been modified. It is also hard to work with some of the logic questions once you have created a survey, but I would imagine that there is no way around that. One needs to learn to think through the survey entirely before adding logic and it is not impossible to edit a survey with logic. Other than this issue, I cannot really think of something that I don't really like.

Elle,

Thank you for the review and for your appreciation of our professional surveys! Whether you designed your own or used one of our pre-designed surveys, we¿re glad that you have found them to be so beneficial for your clients and co-workers.

We think you¿ll be happy continuing on with your package after your trial and we are always happy to discuss any questions you may have (email support1@sogosurvey.com).

Note that we do also offer a basic-level package free, which is likely comparable to (if not better than, if we do say so ourselves!) our competition¿s free packages that you referenced.

Thank you again for taking the time to write!

Customer support was very friendly.

Pros: It is pretty easy to form questions and the design is made logically so you do not need to think a lot what type of option/design to choose for an appropriate option.

Great customer support nonetheless.

Cons: I had some difficulties while establishing my account and a password. At one point it showed me that I already have an account but it is not verified, and when I wanted to log in it showed me that my account was not in the database. However, after checking my mail again and setting up a new password, everything seemed to be fine.

Overall: Hopefully after I fulfil all the pre-requisites for getting a free student account, I will enjoy all the benefits of my package. Nonetheless, from what I have already seen, I am satisfied and I would recommend the software to my colleagues.

Comments: Me and my friends are writing our paper that is in need of surveys. At the beginning, we tried lots of different websites that provide surveys online. However, we couldn't found one that meets our need, then, we came across SoGoSurvey.

There are plenty advantages, and it is SoGoSurvey that solve all of our problems.First of all, SoGo provided a clean and beautiful page, this is really important to either researcher or respondents. For researchers, a clean page and clear instructions allow researchers to learn how to use the system fast. ( quick responses of online 1 to 1 services and those guiding videos helped a lot too!!) On the other hand, for the respondents, a clean and beautiful page would possibly make them more willing to respond. Also, SoGo enables respondents to respond in different devices, such as laptop, cells, or tablets.

Secondly, it makes a lot convenience to researchers that SoGo automatically transfer and output polls and statistics to excel form. These make collecting responds and the forward sorting out data much convenient.

Although I'm only using the free plan now, but I can see that the pricing plans contains a lot more of useful tools and question types. This is why I highly recommend people to give Sogosurvey a try~~

Recommendations to other buyers: We have an advise that the trial version of SoGoSurvey could have different language services so that it could be more convenient to people from any district.

Pros: I think that the best reason to use SoGo is the multitude of different features. You can include [almost] any type of question you can imagine. Moreover there are some other tools and a good human team ready to help you quickly (no need to wait for days!). Another important feature is the fact that you are allowed to download the data received anytime you need to and all the times you want to.

Cons: Due to the huge number of different features, it was a little bit confusing to start designing my first survey. Nevertheless, it wasn't a real problem after using the tutorials and reading the explanations on the website. Moreover, I have seen that the interface and many other features have been redesigned during the last weeks, therefore I believe that it has become the easiest online survey software available.

Overall: I am a researcher on linguistics and a PhD candidate. Due to my job and my studies, I need to conduct different types of surveys, often to dispersed populations, therefore an online tool is almost compulsory for me.

Recommendations to other buyers: In my opinion, SoGo Survey is an excellent tool for students and researchers who need a high-quality survey software, after all, to give it a try is free.

The graphics that it presents are of very good quality and increase understanding.

Comments: My use has benefited me most of all because in my company we obtain many opinions on a daily basis, and with this platform, we have managed to understand each of them graphically and percentage wise.

Pros: I like that SogoSurvey goes to a more graphic attention of the survey, that presents graphic options, and some other percentage factors that increase the understanding of the end of the questionnaire and its results.

Pros: I like most the different functions - every question type can be presented as desired - from skip logic, to branching and simple yes/no questions. Further, no technical expertise is needed due to the videos and great support. Also, the possibility of making the survey in English and German are great to offer my survey to an even greater audience.

Cons: I could not immediately find the function to insert text pages, but even that was solved after contacting SoGoSurvey Support. Some functions are only available to pro versions - but the price is reasonable!

Overall: When I started with writing my Master Thesis, I already knew from a very early stage on that I needed to conduct a survey. Therefore I checked different providers and finally decided to go for SoGoSurvey. What was really crucial was the ease of use: the video tutorials explain from beginning on how to start, and when you start working, the self-explaining functions make you continue and finalize the survey pretty fast. What I especially appreciate is the fast customer support - of course sometimes I needed some help and even with the time difference in Europe, I was supported within minutes or few hours!! I would really recommend the product for the nice style, easy handling and functions!! SoGoSurvey was recommended to me by friends, and I will also recommend the product to other friends.

Recommendations to other buyers: Have a like at the instruction videos, they'll give you a feeling of the software!

Comments: I am currently a Master's student and need to conduct different types of surveys. I have used many survey tools prior to using SoGo. Each one had their share of pros and cons. Recently I was recommended by my colleague to try out the SoGo survey tool.

Initially I was a bit apprehensive to try out a new survey tool after using different ones before. But this suggestion turned out to be very helpful. The sign-up process is easy and quick. Also there is an online tutorial to guide beginners at the start on how to create surveys and how to use the wide array of functions to the full extent.

Next once you begin, it has a very user-friendly interface which helps the user. Additionally you can find a variety of survey templates which can act as a valuable guide in the creation of different surveys. Also customization along the way is made simpler. Further once the data sample is collected, the analysis is made easier with SoGo's dynamic graphs and thus lot of time is saved.

Though many survey tools are available online, SoGo provides many diverse and vibrant features which are not available elsewhere. Lastly if you are a student, you also get entitled to a free license for 1 year.

I would recommend everyone SoGo survey as the go-to survey tool for all their needs. This survey tool is also recommended to organisations and businesses as their pricing is quite reasonable.

Pros: SoGoSurvey is a software that has facilitated not only the process of recruitment of personnel, but a great variety of processes that involve the organization of schedules, permits for rest, vacations, etc. focusing mainly on the results and allowing the personnel to participate in a Active way in the consultations. It is very easy to use and simple, and I love that the results are shown in graphic form. It also allows queries with a maximum of 30 questions and for me it is a good margin.

Cons: The basic free option is a bit limited, for the rest, it seems an excellent tool for consultation.

Overall: My personal experience with this program has been very good, it could be better, but I still like working with this resource a lot. It has given me excellent results and the staff has been empathetic with the tool. I think it is a program that allows us to make decisions based on the needs and requirements of the parties involved in the environment where we work.

Comments: I have being using SoGosurvey for about two years now. During these years I have developed dozens of different questionnaires, within different levels of complexity. I use them mainly for my phd research, where I develop different types of behavioural tests. I must say that I am still quite happy with the service. I've seen that the Sogosuvey platform has evolved quite a lot within the last couple years, so it is definitively a service that keeps a constant upgrade policy. Hence, the resources to implement efficient surveys are always getting better and better. The graphics interface has also improved quite a lot. Customer's service is fast and 24/7. I am based in Europe, and always get quick answers when I have a specific inquiries, which is simply fabulous! The sogosurvey servers are quite stable. I have worked with other systems (such as Qualtrics), which usually rely on the university's servers, and therefore are significantly less stable. Finally, I can tell you that I will keep on using such services for a longer period time. I am very grateful of having found SoGoSurvey. The other ones available in the market won't go as smooth as this one. Of course, it is also important to mention that Sogosurvey offers special price ranges for students (like, free subscription...!), which is very convenient for researchers that are starting their careers. Cheers!

Pros: Comprehensive features

Cons: Intuitiveness

Overall: I am PhD student in business school which spending most the time working with survey data. With limited budget, I have to find survey apps which can accomodate my extensive research. Other than common survey method, I also have to explore myself in experimental survey and scenario based.

Using SoGoSurvey, I can fulfil almost all what I need according to my research design. Such as: build multilingual survey for cross country comparison, piping and branching logic that enables me to do random experiment to different subjects, and distribute my survey into different platform.

With those comprehensive features, I get a huge benefit to work efficiently in collecting data (and affordable pricing for student). Plus, the customer supports are very responsive in solving my needs.

The only weakness is the system is not so intuitive for first time user. However with the strong support from customer service, I can get into the apps easier and succesfully create 2 surveys for my study in less than a month.

Recommendations to other buyers: Not so supportive for other character languages (Chinese, Japan)

Comments: Hello everyone,

I would also like to share my personal experience using SoGoSurvey.

I am currently a Master student in Forensic Psychology and my dissertation project involves the completion of a survey. As a result, I decided to find an online survey platform that could satisfy my student needs.

After trying a number of options (Survey Monkey, Google Forms etc), I came across SoGoSurvey and I decided to give it a go. My first impression was really positive, because of the various videos I could watch, in order to help me getting started. As I am a beginner in using such a platform, I found the videos extremely helpful in guiding me through the whole process of preparing my survey.

Furthermore, due to my research needs, I have to collect a large number of participant responses. With SoGoSurvey, I could get the desired amount of responses and export my data to SPSS (although there is a number of other options available) without any worries!

What I also found extremely important is the fact that, because I am a student, I could upgrade my account and get the extra features available for FREE!



To conclude, I highly recomment SoGoSurvey, especially if you are a student like me. The service is amazing, the support team extremely helpful and quick in their responses and the licence upgrade in the student population is free. What else would anyone want?

We have used SoGoSurvey for the past couple years, and we have been very pleased with the product.

Pros: The software is easy to navigate. You can customize your survey in many ways, which gives it a more personal feel. The reporting and exporting functions are very straightforward, and they are perfect for our needs. We mainly use the software for one large annual survey, so the ability to "hibernate" our account for the rest of the year is a cost-saving function for us.

Cons: This past year, we had some technical issues with the billing component. It took a while to get it fixed, but customer service/tech support was helpful and eventually we figured out what the issue was.

Pros: Everything! Ease of use, personalizing, and customer service.

Cons: Not much we can do as a free user.

Overall: I stumbled upon this product as I was searching for the right platform to put forth my online survey as a graduate student researcher on the way to complete her master's thesis. I signed up for free and was amazed by the ease of use, but automatically knew right away I would need an upgraded version in order to fully complete the survey and be able to send it out to my subjects. Upgrading is also quite easy and can be done in a click of a button!

Some of the features that really caught my attention were the different styles of question formatting there are, along with being able to personalize the survey as much as we can with no limits.

This is a great product for those looking into creating surveys and being able to automatically export analysis onto other platforms. I highly recommend this product for those looking for an ease of use, personalizing, and receiving great customer service when needed.

Recommendations to other buyers: Move the number of questions up to at least 75 for free users :)
