Salesforce Survey Status and Responses – Try Salesforce Surveys for Free!

By Lucy Mazalon

Salesforce Surveys enable you to create forms using a simple editor within your Salesforce Org – for free! Salesforce Sales or Service Cloud customers can take advantage of this complementary product, and receive 300 survey responses before any additional purchase is required.

Survey engagement is synced straight to Salesforce, readily displayed within reports and dashboards.

Who Can Use Salesforce Surveys?

Salesforce made Surveys free in the Summer ’19 Release, for up to 300 survey responses. In order to create surveys, a user must have one of these profiles:

  • Contract manager
  • Marketing user
  • Standard user
  • System administrator

Surveys is closely associated with the Health Cloud and Financial Services Cloud because both verticals typically have many survey use cases.

Salesforce Survey Status and Responses

Salesforce Survey Status and Responses were delivered in the Winter ‘19 release. Now when a survey invitation is sent from Salesforce, you can view whether the recipient has:

  • Opened

  • Completed.
