Survey header and footer


What are headers and footers?

Headers and footers are used in documents to display additional or supplementary information. They improve the experience of readers and the overall look and feel of the pages.

You can use them in surveys to display images, logos, text, or HTML elements at the top or bottom of the questionnaire to the respondents. They offer relevant information to the survey respondents as well as keep navigation experience simple.

Survey header: By default, the survey name is displayed at the top.


Survey footer: You can customize the text at the bottom to include contact links of the concerned people, taglines, custom messages, etc.


A custom survey header or a survey footer can be set at two levels.

  1. At the survey level: This will add a header and footer in one survey only. Using the rich content editor, you can format the text to match the size, font, and colors of your brand. You can also add an image, background color, links and more.

  2. At the organization level: This will add a common header and footer for all the surveys under the same organization.

If you are using an 'Advanced' or higher license, you can set up the header, footer, and default survey theme for your organization. All surveys created under the organization, including the sub-accounts, will use the same header, footer, and global theme.

However, if you update it at the organization level, only the new surveys will have the org level header or footer. Users can customize it, but the default will be the one that is set up at the org level.

The survey header and footer will remain the same across all questions on all pages of the survey. Depending on the configuration, it can remain standard across all the surveys under the same organization.

Example of header and footer in a survey

You can add the title of the survey as the survey header. For instance, if you are running a study to gather feedback from the customers, you can name it as the 'Customer Satisfaction Survey'.

You can leave contact details at the bottom in case the respondents have any questions. You can also add instructions like - Click on '<' and '>' to move to the previous or next question.
