A guide to exporting and distributing kiosk codes for your survey

Who is this guide for?

Account Admin, Survey Creators, Survey Admin

Once you have configured your survey to use kiosk codes, you can export your participants' Kiosk codes to Excel on the Participants page for an Attributed type survey:


Note: You can now use kiosk mode for surveys like onboarding and exit experiences. However, there's no kiosk code export for these surveys. The kiosk code will always be the users Employee ID value. To access the kiosk code, simply download it from your settings > users page > export option, and check the Employee ID column.

Here are some suggestions on how to successfully encourage people to take the survey at a kiosk.

  • Candy, candy, candy! Set up a bowl of treats near the kiosk computer/tablet and they will come

  • Print off everyone's codes and distribute small slips of paper to people so they have their code easily available to them. You probably shouldn't list everyone's codes in a public place as you want to be sure that people use the code assigned to them. You could also print off their name, and perhaps some demographics, in addition to the code so that you can be more certain that the right person is being given the right code.

  • Set up a schedule of who can take the survey when, based on people's shifts (or whatever works at that location). Allocating time during the work day for people to stop their regular work and take the survey will help with participation rates.

  • Have a person nominated to assist people who may need help reading or understanding the questions, or need help with using the kiosk device

  • Consider a mail out to people's homes, with a link to the survey and their own code printed on the letter. You can provide more instructions this way, and people have the information they need to take the survey at home on a PC, or on a smartphone or tablet, etc

  • Consider putting the survey link on a poster, or turning the link into a QR Code so people can use their phones to take the survey, rather than visit a designated kiosk.
