How to Enable & Customize Feedback Settings


The Feedback feature allows your website visitors to rate whether a webpage or an article is useful for them or not. It appears as a question at the bottom of a webpage or the end of an article, and readers can respond by clicking ‘Yes’ or ‘No’.


Benefits of asking for feedback on your help content:

  • Tells you how your webpages or articles are performing
  • Helps you measure customer satisfaction
  • Detailed feedback helps you create the best customer experience
  • Shows your audience that you value their opinion


Here’s how the feedback survey appears at the bottom of a page or article.


Feedback survey


Whether the response is 'Yes' or 'No', it is instantly stored in the feedback report that you can check out later. When your website visitor answers ‘Yes’, the following question is presented to them to end the survey. They can choose to send their feedback or ignore the second question by clicking ‘No thanks’.


Feedback survey question


When the answer is 'No', your website visitor gets the follow-up question which lists some selectable responses such as ‘Fix typos or links’, ‘Fix incorrect or incomplete information’, etc. They can also provide additional feedback in the comment box provided below. That said, they can choose to send or ignore this follow-up question by clicking ‘No thanks’.

Note: When your website visitors click 'Send' for the follow-up questions, the feedback is sent to the email addresses you provide at the time of customizing the feedback settings. If they click ‘No thanks’, no email is sent but the response to the original question ('Yes' or 'No') is stored in the feedback reports.

5. Shows comments entered by your website visitors for the follow-up questions.

6. The date on which the feedback was given.

7. Download this report.
