This review is based on my experience with the Free Version of SoGoSurvey:
So, we basically conducted a pretty basic survey, with an implemented skip logic and various kinds of questions. Before consulting SoGoSurvey we wrote down what questions we wanted to ask and how we wanted them to be answered. In the beginning we thought we’d only use multiple choice with one or more selectable answers. While we entered the questions into SoGoSurvey we found out that there were a lot more types of questions we could chose and implemented them right away. The result was a very diverse survey with different types of questions, so it didn’t feel repetitive. This complemented the content of our survey very well and from the feedback we got from the interviewees, they liked it as well. After an exhausting few hours of surveying (even SoGoSurvey can’t help with that) we finally got enough data, so we could export them. This was made very easy with the SoGoSurvey interface and we exported the results into a csv.file. From that we could easily do our excel-based analysing and after some more hours of data handling, we ultimately got the results we wanted. Luckily those results supported our prior hypothesis and we could implement the survey into our project.

With the pressures of studying an MBA and time is of short supply, you need a reliable , easy to use survey tool like SoGoSurvey with realistic and applicable templates to get you moving. There is no time or resource to learn a new application and sogosurvery does this with such ease. I needed 2 surveys, one real one for my research topic and one for testing the data, so there is this very useful feature where you can store a particular section of the survey question into a Question bank to use on your test survey. This sped up my design and testing phase and I was able to determine if the survey was applicable and that the data was clean and useable for analysis. I was able to put logic and methods even before I got the actual survey from my real participants.
The other feature that was useful was that you create email templates to the different test candidates. This way you could see how the actual survey starts and ends so that you can set some expectations for your real participants. Also I was able to use a shared url and sent it via WhatsApp and it worked like a charm. It also tested the survey was able to work on different operating systems and smart phones and devices .This is very important , otherwise you then have to select your participants and you could end up with disproportionate participants and not true indicative survey data.
I am excited to use SoGoSurvey and would recommend it to my fellow students and others expressing to carry out a survey without spending too much on price and steep learning curves

Amazing support, robust, enterprise-grade survey platform. I have been very pleased with the automation and process improvement that SoGoSurvey has enabled our team over our previous provider. It's really a night and day difference. When we have needed changes or have had issues, the team always does their best to quickly address them effectively. Highly recommend.

Hello, I'm a graduate student. Faculty of Medicine Chulalongkorn University Must have a thesis for graduation And my thesis requires a questionnaire to collect data In the first part, the general questionnaire will be made. But the advisor recommends doing an online questionnaire to gain access to a new generation Convenient and very cost effective No need to move data from paper to the computer, reduce data errors significantly.
Then find out what kind of online questionnaire to use. Have tried using many websites that are available But enough that each website Will have different advantages or disadvantages Like the look of the questionnaire, not attracting to do Or not, can show some image Until a friend suggested Sogosurvey found that the external image was beautiful Attract people to do it. Can change many image styles Can add many features Until able to tell that the Sogosurvey will be a very good online questionnaire Very suitable for me Making research much easie
Would like others to try and like it like me

SoGoSurvey is an amazing tool. We have been using SoGoSurvey since 2013 for very different projects, including research, customers satisfaction surveys, training evaluations, etc. It allows you to create customized surveys on very different topics, with a very different types of questions: text box, rating, grid questions, etc. and to include your institutional logo and image. The one-single use surveys allow to follow up throughout the whole process: if the survey has been opened, read and answered. This option is great to conduct research questionnaires, so you can follow up which key informant has participated already. You can save your questions in answer banks to be used time ang again. Your previous surveys are also reusable and edited very easily. It also allows multi-use link surveys which can be distributed and get to more people. And you can publish the survey in your website or even in your social media. The tool is very intuitive and easy to use for everyone, even for total beginners. It also produces amazing reports, both quantitative and qualitative for an easy analysis, with great charts that you can transfer to a power point very easily saving a lot of time. The support team is very efficient and quick answering any question in detail. We strongly recommend SoGosurvey.

I found SoGoSurvey online whilst looking for a cloud based application through which to create a survey for my BSc dissertation. I found the website fairly user friendly, if somewhat designed more for business users. The ability to customise the design is excellent and I enjoyed browsing the different survey templates available, though I did create my own survey layout due to the nature of my target audience. The website does offer a free upgrade for all students which is fantastic for those currently studying and only requiring one or two surveys. The multiple options available in designing your survey questions, such as matrix grids, intellimatrix, demographic text boxes and likert scale can be modified which makes building your survey easy. Also, the feature for previewing each question allows for quick adjustments before finalising your survey. As a complete novice in survey design, I particularly favoured the predefined survey questions. These allowed me to see answer suggestions to my questions, some of which had not even occurred to me. I found publishing my survey straight forward, and the addition of an access count was a fantastic means of calculating my response rate. As I am not working within my target audience industry, I was unable to send invites - the access count is a great measurement tool in cases like this.
Overall I would highly recommend SoGoSurvey to all students due to the multiple features and ease of use. The support team are fantastic, with fast response times and the various data export options will provide variety to your reports when analysing your data.

We have been using SoGoSurvey for about 5 years now. They offer FREE education plans.
The survey platform this excellent, the tools are very well laid out and simple to use. You can save your questions in answer banks so you can use them time and again. There is a VERY useful reminder email function too. Oh and not to mention the awesome analysis tools. You can get your results in charts and put in a PowerPoint in just a few clicks. This used to take days of work.
The customer support is great too. Very quick to respond to our questions. We hope to use this for the next 5 years. Thank you SoGo.

SoGoSurvey combines outstanding features with top-notch, responsive customer support. The interface is fairly easy to use, and the customer support is truly fantastic; their tech and customer support staff always respond quickly and help resolve any issues I’m experiencing. SoGoSurvey enables us to evaluate our educational trainings and initiatives in a way that other survey tools simply cannot do.
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, with nearly 20 different kinds of nicely formatted reports available 7) highly competitive pricing for nonprofits/educational organizations
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. Luckily, this is likely not an issue for the majority of survey users. Also, the only way to get a report that exports both qualitative and quantitative data is to run a “Segmentation” report (which only works if you have a question by which you can segment) or subscribe at the Enterprise level (which might be out of your budget).

We have been using SoGoSurvey for a number of years now for our small charity and find it an invaluable tool for collating feedback from our course attendees. The range of features available within SoGoSurvey allows us to easily collect relevant information in an informative way. SoGoSurvey truly is an example of well delivered feedback and questionnaire device suitable for modern working environments. Its ease of use when creating surveys is comfortable to even novice users and for the more experienced among us, complex multi-level feedback forms are a doddle. And the end user experience is just as fluid; questions are clear – presented in a variety of available skins, themes and colour formats, question types are easy and straight forward to understand – multiple choice, multi-answer, true/false and many more! SoGoSurveys ability to deliver your questionnaire in a variety of formats is quite impressive and modern and certainly something we at BASICS are looking into utilising more. We currently provide our participants with a direct hyperlink to our various forms and questionnaires however embedding these forms is something that really excited us! All in all SoGoSurvey is a vast, fleshed out and very efficient survey system that we highly recommend to any business.

If you’ve ever stood up from your work desk at the end of a long day of class and realized that 5he dissertation was not going to write itself, then join the club as we are in the same boat.
You’ve got the dreaded IRB approval for your research topic and now it’s time to get to work. You’ve procrastinated, but you got your literature review complete and approved. Now the additional hard work starts….you’ve got to get the research completed.
You feel like you are screwed!!!!!!! But people before had tackled the beast and you will too!!! You’ve gotten IRB approval again for the research questions (WHO ARE THESE IRB PEOPLE ANYWAY? ALL I KNOW IS THAT I HAVE TO PLEASE THEM AND LIKE THEM UNTIL THE DISSERTATION IS DONE)
You’ve seen many survey products, such as surveymonkey.com, qualtrics , and Google forms and others, but they all have their limitations.
Through the years, I’ve tried dozens of products and I needed a robust product that was cost effective as I am having to pay for this myself. Oh yeah school is not cheap, if someone didn’t tell you.
However, none of these surveys seemed to work for me, either because of cost or functionality until I discovered the company SoGoSurvey. Though I was initially skeptical about the survey’s ability to help me properly align my questions with respondents, the different options offers students choices to help complete dissertation requirements.
The software’s quick and easy evaluation and alignment process has left me feeling confident about my success.
SoGoSurvey the go to tool for doctoral students.

As a graduate student, I spend a lot of time in front of my computer. I want the tools I use for my research to be clear, simple to use, and convert across different platforms. I don’t want to spend extra time on remaking all my charts! Bonus points if they convert to a beautiful report that I can show my clients or my supervisor! Having tried out a number of the free survey options available, and feeling disappointed with the output, I looked up new options and saw a review for SoGoSurvey. The website was well-designed and very user-friendly, and I appreciated the short training videos that were available to explain each step. I was impressed by the features that they offered, even in free accounts! For me, the most important features were the ease with which I could export data, having multiple question types, and ample opportunity for customization. SoGoSurvey delivered on all accounts. Even for a free account, the support staff is very clear and responsive to your needs. From what I can tell, the price of each of the different packages is very competitive when compared to other platforms (as a helpful hint, students can also receive a discount when using SoGoSurvey!) I am excited to use such a professional tool in my work, and look forward to sharing my results with my clients!

SoGoSurvey is a great tool in order to create surveys. I work for a small non-profit and use it to create forms that we post on our website for potential volunteers to fill out. I like SoGoSurveys' tools to create surveys and forms quickly and easily. The forms designs can be modified to fit different color schemes and are quick and easy to make. There is a learning curve initially in learning to create the forms. Also, it can be tricky once logged into the site to look at form responses, but once those have been figured out, it is a great tool. I have recommended this to others!

As a principal, SoGo Survey has been an extremely useful tool for me that I have utilized to gather detailed information from students, parents/guardians and staff. The information that we have been able to gather has given "voice" to MANY stakeholders within our school community and has been used as a data point within our school improvement work. I also have used SoGo Survey to give my staff a way to provide an anonymous evaluation of me. The data I have gathered from this has allowed me to make personal improvements to better meet the demands of this position. I also want to say that the customer support I have received has been AMAZING, definitely an A+, 5 STARS!!!

SoGoSurvey is a great tool for conducting the research, also if you are a student. I found the platform online and it was ranked really high on the overall criterias, in comparison, to, for instance, GoogleForms or SurveyMonkey. I am a currently writing my thesis and the SoGoSurvey platform offers an extensive range of differet analytical tools which is perfect for me. Moreover, what got me most was the excellent support team which answered my questions and solved the issues I had within half an hour. I really fellt supported so I am truly grateful for that! Not many platforms offer such quick and efficient customer service. Many thanks for that!

Review by Pebs Rundgren6 months ago
I am currently using this tool to create a 40 item online survey. It is well built and user friendly. The most amazing thing though is that it has a lot of options for free and a special subscription plan for students with no costs. I am currently doing a research project in the Human Resources field. Shalom H Schwartz Theory of Basic Values will be the basis of the analysis. The Portrait Values Questionnaire (PVQ) will be used in order to assess the predisposition of the Romanian employees to the ten value set proposed by the theory. In order to successfully achieve this project a powerful online tool is required to survey the Romanian employees. SoGoSurvey is this tool for me. I already built the 40 item survey in my free account. The interface is relatively easy to use, although not that intuitive. The data gathered is quite extensive with lots of additional information beyond the survey, like IP, browser, email, operating system, duration and even screen resolution.
It also has a built in translation tool and spell check. Too bad it doesn’t have Romanian, although there are lots of different relatively uncommon languages (Bosnian, Burmese, Cape Verdean, Haitian Creole, Hmong etc.).
Anyway, I definitely recommend this tool both for business development and academic research!

This product is terrific! It masters ease of use and extensive capabilities. I used this product a small-scale survey of 100 people with a mix of fixed and free responses questions. The survey creation features were excellent, including pre-defined question types and easy re-arrangement of questions during creation. The report features allowed easier surveillance of data and survey responses, as data collection was in process. Similarly, data export was seamless and facilitated quick analysis. The customer service team was terrific, answering my questions within 2-3 minutes. Overall, this is a great product, which I would recommend to both personal and enterprise users. 5 stars!!!

SogoSurvey is a great tool that helped me a lot to do my postgraduate university research. The website is really easy to navigate starting from the registration process, where everything is explained step by step. You also receive a welcome email with an offer to schedule a conversation with a real person to explain the features of the portal. I think that really proves the level of customer support that the company offers. The design of the survey is again really straight forward, you can customise all of the aspects of your survey and apply different backgrounds, logos and colours. The interface is very user friendly and easy to get your head around. There is plenty of tools that help you with sharing the survey and live tracking of how many people applied. The portal also offers in depth statistics of your surveys which you can take advantage of, this aspect is also customisable so it is really easy to remove any info you don’t need. You can also export your reports to other programs such as excel... this really helped me with the data analysis for my research! Overall I am really happy with the portal and their offer.

As a PhD student in quantitative social science, platforms such as SoGoSurvey are indispensible for data collection. I find SoGoSurvey really easy to use. They have designed the interface such that everything is clear and intuitive in terms of putting together a survey or an online experiment. I had no difficulty putting together what I needed for my study the very first time I logged in after signing up.
SoGoSurvey's platform strength is that it is amazingly intuitive yet very powerful, which is a great time saver. A bonus is that the surveys are automatically formatted to best fit the user's screen, be it a desktop/laptop, tablet or mobile phone, which makes it much easier for respondents to read regardless of the device they choose to use, which in turn will greatly reduce non-response rates.
Also, despite currently being just a basic account user, customer support was quick, friendly and helpful. While I don't think anyone who knows how to surf websites will have a problem using the platform, it most certainly is reassuring to know that they have a really great customer service team that's responsive and helpful, even to basic account users. To me, it speaks volumes about serious they are about their mission to help anyone who needs to collection information online.
Overall, I am very pleasantly surprised by the ease and power of SoGoSurvey and it will be my data collection tool for my PhD. Several other graduate student reviewers before me have expressed similar experiences. If you are a student or a researcher who needs to collect data online from people, you really should sign up with SoGoSurvey and take it for a test run. The guys at SoGoSurvey have one job, and they have done their job exceedingly well.

I have been using SoGoSurvey for last 2 years to carrying out academic research. I am impressed with its functionality, including excellent support from technical team. The SoGoSurvey offers a non-profit license to non-profit organizations. This shows it cares and takes social responsibility very much. Thank you.
