How to Enable & Customize Feedback Settings


The Feedback feature allows your website visitors to rate whether a webpage or an article is helpful 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."


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




When your website visitors answer ‘Yes,’ the following question is displayed at the end of the page. They can choose to send their feedback.



When the response is “No,” your website visitors get 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. They can choose to send or ignore this follow-up question by clicking “No thanks.”




Note: When a visitor clicks “Send” for the follow-up questions, the feedback is sent to the email addresses you provide when 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.


Benefits of asking for feedback on your help content:


  • Lets you know how your help pages or articles are performing

  • It helps you measure customer satisfaction

  • Detailed feedback enables you to create the best customer experience

  • Shows your audience that you value their opinion
