Collecting valuable feedback from your attendees helps you make better decisions. Attendees can tell you about the best speakers, most exciting topics, and logistical setbacks. Use their insights to maximize your next event.
You can use Sched or a platform like Google Forms, Wufoo or Typeform to collect feedback.
Your attendees are able to rate and comment on each session. Surveys open five minutes before the session starts and close five days after your event ends.
Here is an example of the feedback form in the session details:
Attendees will receive an email reminder to review their experience at 5pm each day of your event. Here is a sample of the email:
By default, the feedback form is active for all sessions. If you don’t want to collect session ratings and comments, you can disable it.
When the feedback form is active for all sessions, you can disable it for particular sessions. You can also disable the form for all sessions (outlined above) and activate it for select sessions.
Let your attendees know what type of feedback you’re looking for. Customize the text above your feedback form with instructions and guiding questions.
Your attendees will receive an email reminder to rate and comment on their sessions at 5 pm each day of your event. You can disable the email if you don’t want to send the reminder.
All responses will be visible in your control panel. You can filter by session title and attendee and hide responses without comments.
The excel export will have a row for each response. There’s a column for session ID, title and start time. As well as columns for attendee name, email, date submitted and comment.
The number of responses will display in your control panel. Hover over the feedback icon to view the average rating.
You can view the feedback responses by session.
Export the feedback as an XLS to share with speakers and staff.
Create a custom survey using Google Forms to gather feedback and ratings from your attendees. Google Forms are free and easy to set up with any Google account.
Integrate Google Forms with Sched and automatically pre-fill the session title in each survey. This will save you from having to build different surveys for each session.
In the Session Title answer field type %TITLE% and click “Submit.”
Copy and paste the link that’s created into a text doc.
You can issue continuing education certificates by collecting information from attendees with Google Forms as explained above. Then you can generate the certificates with a third party option.
