Survey appearance: how do I put my questions in ‘cards’

No comments

Webdesign is slowly moving away from the full page views we were so used to. More and more you see individual ‘cards’ on web pages. Twitter is a good example of this usage of cards. You can mimic that view using our survey tool as well.

Switch to a ‘card’ design

By making some small changes to the Appearance settings in your survey you can easily put each question in a separate card.

  1. Go to the survey.
  2. Click on Settings and then on Appearance.
  3. Click on Frame.
    • Check the box next to Show frame.
    • Choose a color for the background. This will be the background color of your survey.
    • Set the border color to Transparant. You can do so by deleting the hexadecimal code that’s mentioned, or by selecting the X in the color picker.
