Introducing the Hidden Field / URL Param Question Type

We just added a new very important and usable question type called "Hidden Field / URL Param". Hidden field are hidden from the survey taker but are available for filters in your reports and exports. The Hidden field or URL Param question type allows to collect data from URL parameters of your survey such as [username], [event_id], and much more.

Where to use Hidden Field / URL Param question type in your surveys?

Let's say you have a website like a "" where you organize meetings, events and you want to get a feedback about specific event by following parameters such as [event_id], [event_title] and etc. Of course you can create survey for each event or use multiple collectors for one survey. But Hidden fields can give you much more and also allow you collect a lot of additional data for future filtering.
So what you need to do is just add Hidden field question types onto your survey with URL parameter names that you expect to receive from url.

For example:
http://your-survey-url/?event_id=551223&event_title=Big Data Science

That's It.
Now your survey is ready for Hidden Fields.
Happy Surveying!
The Inqwise team.

One month ago we launched to the world

Hello all!

It was one month ago that we launched - new online survey tool and our baby is gaining momentum.
In this post we'd like to draw some of our conclusions regarding this period of time and share our future plans with you.


  • One of the most fundamental building blocks is the web site's performance. Recently, we've managed to decrease the server's response time by at least 30%, due to the following: resource optimization, data caching and simplification of operations logic.
  • We've increase the bandwidth of our collectors by 3.5 times. It was achieved by using smart distribution solution. As a result our platform are ready for enterprise level loads.
  • Now you can easily find us on the Internet, we've improved the SEO of the website. Inqwise has already glimpsed in many search engines for queries related to online surveys.

Some statistics

Maximum of unique users per day:91
Number of transactions:more than 800
Number of recipients:more than 400
Number of polls created:more than 30
Number of registered users:32

Summing it up

Our aspiration is to expand the capabilities and simplify the working process in our system.
Nevertheless, even at this stage Inqwise is a better alternative compared to other competing survey tools like SurveyMonkey, PollDaddy, and FluidSurveys.

In the near future we'll increase the stock of the new features and services, and make working processes more intuitive.

Best regards,
The Inqwise Team.

Survey RTL support for Right-to-Left text direction

We have added full support for Right-to-Left text direction for languages such as Arabic and Hebrew from the beginning of Inqwise development.

Support for languages written in a Right-to-Left direction is easy - it's just a matter of overwriting all the horizontal positioning attributes of CSS stylesheet.

While other online survey tools offer some kind of CSS text editor to alter the survey skin settings from LTR to RTL and vice versa, we provide a much easier method for this task, we only added a checkbox. (See screenshot)

Survey Settings -> RTL support

So to enable RTL support for a survey, just go to "Survey Settings" page, and scroll down the screen until the section "Right-to-Left (RTL)", select the checkbox "Enable Right-to-Left (RTL) text direction support" and save your changes by clicking the button "Save Changes", that's all.

We did our best to provide our customers the fastest way to change a survey skin to be RTL friendly.

We have created 2 examples for both Arabic and Hebrew languages.

Arabic Right-to-Left survey example

Hebrew Right-to-Left survey example

We hope you have enjoyed our service.

Best regards,
The Inqwise Team

Beta Tier and Testing

We push major code changes weekly on Tuesday evenings (Pacific Standard Time), and hotfixes throughout the week.

Every week, usually on Sunday evenings, we stage our weekly push, which happens on Tuesday evenings, on the beta tier. This provides ourselves 48 hours to test and find bugs before the build hits production. After Tuesday, while the beta tier is continuously updated with hotfix patches which are queued up for the daily hotfix release, the production tier is updated with the hotfix push in the evenings, Pacific Standard Time.
