Survicate surveys are so damn effective because of the way they engage your customers- in the context. It is easy to create different segments of website visitors to be surveyed, pick up the right moment to ask questions and decide upon where the survey should actually be launched (or where it should be skipped). Today we have improved the ‘where’ part of our 3W (where, when and to whom) targeting mix.

Until today, it looked and worked as below. The option to define pages used to be placed in the first tab, and you could either define URLs and optionally use Regular Expressions for more complex addresses.

From now on, page targeting can be found along with other targeting options in the third tab. But what is more important, it just got easier and more flexible at the same time. We have introduced additional options in drop down, so you can faster create page targeting rules.

When defining on which pages you do/don’t want to display your surveys on, you can now use following options:

  • Equals – this enables you to set the exact page you want to run your survey on, for example survicate.com – the main page, and nowhere else.
  • Starts with – this enables you to define the beginning of your website address – works like ‘Include subpages’ until now. So when you want to run your surveys, let’s say, product pages, you can go with yourshop.com/product and it will run on that page and all others in the structure, for example yourshop.com/product/dancing-shoes.
  • Ends with – lets stick to those shoes – you want to ask about all the shoes that are red, and your address structure looks like this – yourshop.com/product/dancing-shoes/modelname-color – then type in ‘red’ only, and you are all settled.
  • Contains – self-explanatory – run your surveys on all pages that contain a specified word.
  • Match RegEx – if all of above is not enough, you can use Regular Expressions to define the most complex page addresses to display surveys – for example: product pages which addresses contain 3 digits after the second slash and 4 digits just before the last one. If you need any assistance with RegEx you can reach out to our helpdesk with in-app chat.
  • Equals (SPA) – SPA stands for Single Page Application. If you use AngularJS and Ember.js or similiar, and your page does not reload even what a user browse and the address changes, you can still trigger your surveys with this option. If you have any questions regarding that, you can always reach out to our support – we are happy to help.
