How to analyze the results of your survey

How to evaluate your survey with easyfeedback
Online surveys help you to get feedback from several people on different topics. We have already shown you how to create an online survey. Now we’ll show you how to evaluate your survey.
After your survey is launched, you will promptly receive the first results and can start looking at your responses. The analysis is one of the most exciting parts of your survey. Here you find out how you can best proceed and what options you have.
You haven’t created a survey yet, but you need answers to your questions? Then start right here.

Discover first trends during the ongoing survey

With easyfeedback, the results are always displayed in real time. This means that you have access to the results immediately after the start or during the ongoing survey and can get an idea of initial trends. Simply go to the evaluation tab in our tool. Here you can monitor the participation and see how long people need to participate, on which day how many people participated, which devices the people used and at which point they might have dropped out earlier.

Next, we switch to the Results tab. This is where it gets exciting: You will see the answers to your questions. Note, however, that while the survey is running, the results will still change.

In the third tab, Individual results, you can take a closer look at the individual participations. Here you can see all the answers of each person summarized (anonymously, if no personalization has been set). This gives you a better picture of the answers of a person.

Start the analysis and gain deeper insights

Whether during the ongoing survey or after the survey has ended: now it gets exciting. The answers to each individual question are displayed under the results. Basically, the overall result is displayed here first. In the overall result, the answers are displayed cumulatively.

In order to start an analysis, however, we do not need the overall result, but partial results. This is because we want to know how a group of people answered in order to gain deeper insights at this point. To do so, we now need to filter the result to this group of people.

In easyfeedback you can set a filter on the answers of the participants. Either you create a new filter via the filter menu:

set a filter on the answers of the participants
Or you can use the OneClick Filter. Here you can easily filter the results with one click. Just click on a percentage value in the data table and add the person group with the + sign:
Filter survey results with oneclick-filter

Now that you have filtered your results, your analysis begins. For example, in an employee survey, we asked about the department in which the employees work. If we now filter the result to all employees from marketing, we only see their given answers. And that’s exactly what we’re going to take a closer look at now.

Tip: It’s best to display all the results one below the other – this makes it easier to look at them.

Now scroll through your questions and take a closer look at the answers. On the one hand the diagrams and on the other hand the text answers. Here you can find out what marketing thinks about your questions and what the mood is in this department. By setting filters, you get detailed information from the results of your survey and can correctly assign them.

And now you do this with all relevant participant groups. This gives you a deeper and more accurate insight.

Tip: Just save your OneClick filters to find and use them faster later.

Visualization of text responses with a word cloud

In your survey, you may have also given your participants the option to give free text responses. Wonderful, because the gold of a survey lies in the free text answers.

With the previous initial in-depth analyses, you have now gained an insight into the groups of people. Next, let’s take a closer look at the text responses.

For this purpose, we either take the overall result or a filter with a partial range of the results. If you now navigate to the question with the open text answers, you can display a word cloud there.

The word cloud shows you the most frequently mentioned words for this question. The more often the word was mentioned, the larger it is displayed.

Compare individual result areas

Reducing the overall result to a sub-area is the first step in gaining deeper insights into the results. Now we go one step further. With the comparisons, we can now place the answers of the groups of people next to each other and make differences visible. This way you can immediately see how which group has scored and present the results afterwards.

Compare individual survey results
The advantage of easyfeedback is that you are completely free in what you want to compare. So you can compare time periods, groups of people, response behavior or ratings to different content. Simply select the desired number of perspectives, put them into a comparison and choose from which perspective a percentage development should be displayed.
Compare results by click and make differences visible

Present your findings with reports

Now that you have created filters and comparisons, you can share them with other people. This way you don’t have to call up and re-export the report every time. Simply create a report from your results view. These reports can be created individually and you can change them at any time.

Once you have created the report, you can share it via a link. Copy the link and send it to one or more people:

Share report of your survey results

Export the results at the end


One of the most important functions is the export of your results. And here too, easyfeedback helps you enormously to save time. Because every view in easyfeedback – regardless of whether it is an overall result, a filtered result or a comparison – is transferred 1:1 to the export. This means that you do not have to create the filtering or comparison again after exporting your results.

You can export your results in four formats: CSV, XLS, SPSS or PDF.

Simply click on the desired export format, select the questions to be exported and start your export.
