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.
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’.
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’.
In this article, you’ll learn:
Step 1. Go to Settings >> Feedback from your ProProfs Knowledge Base dashboard.
Step 2. The screenshot below explains how to enable and customize feedback settings.
1. Check the Turn On Feedback checkbox to enable users to share feedback.
2. Enter the email address where you’d like to get notified.
3. Enter the feedback question you’d like to ask. In case you do not prefer the edited question, click Switch to Default to reset it to the original version.
4. Enter the follow-up question for detailed feedback if the response is ‘No’ to the first question. You can click Switch to Default to reset to the original question.
5. Optionally, you can request website visitors to provide their email address when they’re submitting feedback.
6. You can also prevent your website visitors from giving feedback more than once per page visit. For example, if a website visitor submits their feedback, they cannot do it again for the same page unless the page is refreshed or they return to this page.
Click Save when you’ve customized the feedback settings.
Feedback generates a corresponding report that shows you the rating given by your website visitors to your webpages or articles.
