Home > How to add a post-chat survey with Google Forms

(Last Updated On: October 13, 2017)

Update 9/28/17  This feature will NOW work with Design Studio.

While we are working on our own built-in post-chat survey option (stay tuned for this feature in the near future) you can use our ‘post chat window’ option to display custom content after the chat in the mean time.

You can display a link to a survey on your side, or we can embed your survey as an iframe. Such a survey can be custom-built from your side, or you can use available survey widgets like SurveyGizmo, SurveyMonkey or Google Drive Forms.

If you already have a survey widget ready that you wish to display on your post-chat window, please send the link to us at support@snapengage.com

In this example we focus on the free ‘Google Forms’ tool. You can find a general help article on how to configure such a form here.

First add a new form and choose the default template, to start configuring the questions.

Here we add a simple ‘Checkboxes’ question for a 0-5 star rating (you can copy&paste this star icon to the question field: ★ )

(Legacy Google Form) You can also use the ‘Scale’ option for a small vertical radio-button selection:

00001556

Next we add two ‘text’ fields to pass along the Agent Alias and Case ID with a link to the chat transcript on SnapEngage (these form fields will be pre-filled):

We can now preview how the form looks live and then prepare the pre-filled replies for Agent Alias and Case ID.

To make this possible, go to (Google Legacy Form)’Responses’ – > Get pre-filled URL:

2014-02-17_1128

Answer the questions you want to pre-fill, then click submit (you can enter any value – we will replace this with our variables):

2014-02-17_1138

For new Google Form users, it will look like this;

Answer the questions you want to pre-fill, then click submit (you can enter any value – we will replace this with our variables):

 

You will now get an URL that looks like this, please copy this:

2014-02-17_1131

 

 Finally, forward both the pre-filled URL to us at support@snapengage.com with your account email address – we will then embed this in your post-chat form for you.

The final result will look similar to this:

2014-02-17_1156

——————-

In general we can forward these variables to your survey:

{alias} will be replaced by the agent alias.
{link} will be replaced by the web address (URL) of the chat transcript case on SnapEngage.
{js:varname} where “varname” is a JavaScript variable setup to be instrumented by SnapEngage will be replaced by the instrumented value.
You can read more about the JavaScript variables option here.
