AllCounted was built to be easy to use, but if you do get stuck along the way, we have added helpful notes throughout. Most pages have a Read this first link and instructional text with helpful information for new users. Many data fields also have tips with helpful explanation. We also have a guide for advanced features. If you don't see your question here, please contact us and we will respond in a timely manner. Thank you for helping us better serve you!


AllCounted provides these services:

  • Online surveys: AllCounted provides a powerful, easy to use, innovative, and full-featured system for survey creation and data analysis. It is completely free.
  • Survey resources: AllCounted is an organized, searchable, and secure database of previously made surveys and survey results.
  • Social networking: AllCounted provides the opportunity for like-minded individuals to safely find, connect and interact with each other through surveys.

All features and services at AllCounted are completely free. You may create as many surveys as you wish, send them to as many people as you need, and use as many of the data analysis tools as you can, all at no cost.

AllCounted firmly believes that surveys are a fundamental way of human communication and should be free and open to all. To grow our business and provide better services to our users, we plan to produce revenue from online ads and a participant database. This database can be tapped into for opinions for a fee, part of which goes to the participants to your survey. If survey creators can find participants on their own, then everything at AllCounted is available to them at no cost.

Registration and Account Management

You can create a new account by clicking the Sign up link at the top of the page and entering the required information, which is very minimal. No personal address, phone number, or form of payment is needed.

Yes. You must have an AllCounted account to create a survey. Creating an account is free and requires only a valid email address and a username of your choice.

No. Most surveys do not require participants to have accounts at AllCounted. However, when you create your survey, you can specify whether or not your participants are required to have an AllCounted account. Requiring an account helps increase a survey's privacy and security by limiting participation to only account users, but having an account could be an inconvenience to some people, making them reluctant to take your survey.

Such information will be helpful when you create surveys. For example, AllCounted requires you to select the time zone for your survey to end. If you have already done so in your account settings, then AllCounted automatically uses that as the default for your surveys.

When you send your survey to people, the survey can show your username as the survey creator. If you want to show a different name, you can enter it into the display name. The display name is also used to show who you are when you leave comments.

Go to Account Settings, Time Zone to choose your time zone. If you cannot find your city in the list of available time zones, choose one that is in the same time zone as your city. Once you choose your time zone, your local time will display throughout our website.

You can change your primary email address by following these steps:

  • Go to the Email Addresses page under Account Settings.
  • On this page, add the email address you want to use as your new primary email address. A verification email will be sent to this address. Click on the verification link in the email.
  • Refresh the Email Addresses page, and there will be a star icon in the Action column for this email address. This icon allows you to replace your current primary email address with a new one.

Note that your account password remains the same after changing your primary email address. You can always delete an email address that is not the primary one.

The team member is one of the collaborative features we offer. When you need a trusted person help create your surveys or manage your account, you can add the person as a team member of your account. Note that when you add one as your team member, you don't automatically become a team member of that person. In addition, you need to be careful because team members have the ability to perform create, update, view, and delete operations on all your data except deleting your account.

Deleting an account is easy and instant. Sign into your account and then click Account Settings, Delete Account.

Please note that deleting your account will permanently remove your account, your surveys, and the responses they collected.

Privacy and Security

No. AllCounted will never share your personal data with a third party.

We have taken every precaution to protect its users' information. In addition, we do not ask users for any sensitive information such as names, addresses, phone numbers, or financial data.

At AllCounted, your data is protected both online and offline. Online, our entire website is protected using TSL/SSL encryption software. Thus, the data of all your online activities such as registration, sign-in, survey creation, etc. is protected. To learn more about TSL/SSL, follow this link: On each page of AllCounted and at any moment, a user can only access a survey or its results they are authorized to access.

Offline access to users' data is also restricted. AllCounted operates in a secured and locked facility. Only personnel with proper security clearance for specific job tasks have access to these restricted areas. Our employees are trained in the best practices in security and privacy.

Here is how we handle the confidentiality of user data:

  • Our system is maintained in a secured facility that only authorized and trained personnel can access.
  • We do not view, use, change, delete, or sell the surveys or survey results of our users.
  • We are the only site that offers various tools to survey creators to secure their survey data. Survey creators can specify whether their surveys are searchable or private on our website, limit access to their surveys through various methods, decide whether or not to share survey results with other people as well as what results to share, at what time, and with whom. We are very innovative in this aspect, and no other survey site offers what we have.
  • In case you still don't feel safe about having data in our system, you can export your data after your survey ends and delete your survey and its results from our website instantly.

We will not delete any data of those users who follow our Terms of Use. we intend to keep user data indefinitely and make it accessible online all the time.

Making a survey private means preventing it and its results from being known to the public. Making a survey secure means restricting the access to a survey and its results to designated people. The two are related and different. At AllCounted, making a survey private is making it not searchable, and making a survey secure is using the methods of accounts, access codes, email addresses, etc. to limit who can access a survey and its results.

A non-searchable survey is private and it can't be found through search or browsing on our site. When a survey is made non-searchable, its results are completely private too by default, and they are only accessible to its creator. Note that if a participant shares a non-searchable survey with unintended people, then they may be able to take the survey if it doesn't have the appropriate restrictions to limit participants.

Yes. When creating a campaign for your survey, you can make it private by making it non-searchable, and then you can further restrict its participants and the people who can view its results as well as what results they can view. You can also make results totally private and only accessible to yourself.

We provide two options to have others help you build and manage your surveys. One way to do this is with co-authors. Co-authors can only access a survey and its results for which they are designated as co-authors. Another way is with team members. Team members are able to access all your surveys and their results.

Whether your response is anonymous depends on how the survey creator configures their survey. If you have any concern about your privacy, you should contact the survey creator. Please note that you can ignore a request for survey participation or abandon a survey during your participation.

We provide the survey creator with a participant's computer address and geographic location derived from that such as country and state. We may also provide the username, access code, or email address associated with a response depending on how the survey creator configures their survey.

Creating Surveys

AllCounted is a powerful and flexible system for creating surveys. From a simple single-page Yes-or-No poll to a multi-page questionnaire, you can develop whatever type of survey best fits your needs using different question types such as multiple choice, free text, ranking, table of choices, and skip logic (also called branch logic) that can skip questions or pages based on the rules you set for certain answers. Whether you are a business interested in customer or employee satisfaction, a student collecting data for a project, a scientist recording input from research subjects, a non-profit in need of online forms, a political organization looking for constituent feedback, or an individual compiling feedback on a community issue, we are at your disposal.

Whether you are new to creating surveys or not, it is always a good idea to search AllCounted for surveys that are similar in content or format to the one you have in mind. You may find that someone has already asked the questions you want to ask and that the results are already available. If not, there may be existing similar surveys that can help you formulate your own or be copied as a template for your survey.

We understand that many people want to create a simple survey and make it available to participants right away. For these users, we provide the Basic mode, in which all the advanced survey settings and features are either hidden or preset with the most commonly used values.

On the other hand, some survey professionals and advanced users require more powerful and flexible features. Our Advanced mode is for them. In the Advanced mode, the survey creator has access to all the features of AllCounted, including many innovative and powerful functions such as campaigns, participant restrictions, results sharing, cross tabulation, statistical tools, private share, social networking, etc.

Note that we have also made it easy to switch between these two modes. You can start a survey quickly in Basic mode and then refine it as needed in Advanced mode, or vice versa.

No. As part of our Terms of Use, all survey creators agree to let you reuse their questions for your own survey if their surveys are accessible to you. You can either manually recreate each question in your survey or duplicate them all at once through survey templates.

Yes. Go to your account and click Surveys, My Surveys on the left-hand side menu to show a list of your surveys. In the Action column, click the Duplicate button for the survey you want to copy, and then you can start modifying the new survey. Please note that survey rules and responses aren't duplicated for the new survey.

Yes. Open your survey. Click Design, Questions. Now you have a list of questions. For each question, you can do a few things. One of them is "Duplicate". Clicking on it makes a copy of the question. Please note that survey rules on the question aren't duplicated.

A single survey can have up to 300 questions and 100 pages.

No. There is no limit on the number of surveys you can create at AllCounted or the number of responses a survey can receive.

Yes. You can change survey questions and their settings at any time, even after your survey is live and has received responses. If you need to change questions after your survey has received responses, keep the following in mind:

  • There is no effect on results if your survey hasn't collected any responses yet.
  • If your change is text only, there will be no effect on your survey's results.
  • There is no effect on results if you simply reorder questions.
  • Deleting a question removes the answers to the question from all responses. The answers to other questions will not be affected.
  • Deleting an answer choice of a multiple choice question removes the selections of choices from all responses. The selection of other answer choices will not be affected. The same goes for Drag and Drop Ranking questions and Table of Choices questions.

The first step is to enter the text of your question.

The second step is to enter the answer choices of your question. You can enter them all at once, one on each line. When you are done, click Save.

The next step is to select Ordinal for Data Type, and click Save.

The last step is to click the Display tab and select Likert Scale for "Display of Answer Choices". You can enter text that will display at the left and right ends, but that is optional and depends on the answer choices.

The following are examples with and without left-end or right-end text:

The Net Promoter Score (NPS) question is primarily used by businesses to gauge customer loyalty by measuring how likely a customer is to recommend their products or services. An NPS question uses a set scale of 0-10, and answers are grouped into Promoters (9-10), Passives (7-8), and Detractors (0-6) in order to calculate a value called the NPS, which ranges from -100 to +100. A common NPS question is: "How likely would you recommend our product (services, company, etc.) to a friend or colleague?".

If a question isn't concerned with customer loyalty but intends to gauge participants' feelings on a statement, it should use the multiple choice question with or without Likert Scale display. In this situation, a multiple choice question asks participants to select their level of disagreement or agreement on a statement. Example questions include: "How strongly do you ...", "How confident are you ...", "Please indicate the level of ...", etc. The choices don't have to be numbers from 0-10, which an NPS question requires. They can be numbers such as 1-5 or a group of texts such as Strongly Disagree, Disagree, No Opinion, Agree, and Strongly Agree.

The following sample questions show the difference between the two types of questions in display.

In analyzing survey results, the two types of questions are treated differently too. Multiple choice questions have the percentage of selection for each answer choice, and can have statistics for mean, median, and mode. The analysis of a Net Promoter Score question puts the percentage of selection into three groups and calculates a Net Promoter Score for the question. Please see the following screenshots:

Yes. You can add images to questions, the answer choices of multiple choice questions, and other places. In those places, you'll see a row of tool icons at the bottom of your text area. One of them is for inserting images. Clicking on it displays a popup. Please see the following screenshot:

You can upload an image from your computer or drag and drop it in the indicated area. You can also insert the link of an online image by clicking the "link" icon in the upper-left corner of the popup. You can even open your image in Photoshop or another image-editing software, cut or crop it, and then paste it in the text area. Once your image is in the text area, you can size it. To do that, click on the image, and you'll see a popup beneath the image asking for its size. A value between 200 and 800 is usually appropriate for image width.

If you insert the link of an online image, then the image can reside on any website. One popular place people use to upload their images online is imgur. We recommend it to our users because it is free and easy to use.

Please note that we only support JPG, PNG, and GIF images. Images that are uploaded or pasted can't be larger than 800K, but there is no restriction if you insert the link of an online image.

Yes. You can add the link of an online PDF to places like the survey introduction, questions, and other places where links are permitted. Click on the icon for inserting links as shown below:

You must enter the link and the link text. Usually, you should check "Open in a new tab" so that when a participant clicks on the link, your survey page remains open as a new tab is opened to show the document. The following is an example of what a link would look like in a survey:

This process is the same for adding a link to other document types. Please note that our website doesn't store uploaded files except for images, and that your PDF must be online first. You can upload your PDF file to Google Drive, Dropbox, or other content-sharing sites and then get the link to your PDF file.

Yes. To do this, you will need to upload your logo in the Account Settings section. Then, you can go to any of your surveys and add your logo on the Settings page under Design. Your logo must be added to each survey individually.

No. All our tools and services are free, and the text and our logo are the only way we'd like to be acknowledged.

In the Style & Preview page under Design, you can choose to hide the language dropdown.

Yes, you can still type your survey questions in the language of your choice. However, the Back and Next buttons, as well as displayed text such as error messages that might appear during the survey-taking process, will appear in AllCounted's default language, which is English (U.S.).

We don't offer any online translation service. You have to manually enter text for each language. You may want to use a tool such as Google Translate to help you generate translated text and enter it in your survey. Please note that no translation tool is 100% correct. You'll need to review your translated text before really using it.

Yes, in the places of a survey such as introduction, question text, answer choices of multiple choice questions, etc. you can use various text formatting tools.

Yes. You can change the appearance of your survey pages, including the colors, fonts, positioning, etc. of different page elements. Please click Style & Preview under Design. Select a predefined theme that best meets your needs, and then start modifying it to create your own. Through this option, you are also able to see how your survey will look on desktops, tablets, and smartphones.

Yes, we offer question skip rules, question conditions, question scoring rules, page start skip rules, and page end skip rules. Collectively, they are called survey rules. Please click here for more information.

Please click here for an example.

No. When a question page displays in the browser, all questions on the page are displayed and remain visible no matter how a question on the page is answered. In another way, skip rules can only direct a participant to a later page. You need to put skipped questions on a later page and then use a skip rule to skip that page.

First, you need to create conditions for each question. Then you can create a page start skip rule and select the question conditions for that rule. We support three logical methods to handle selected question conditions:

  • All selected conditions are met
  • At least one selected condition is met
  • No selected condition is met

You need a page skip rule. You can create a page skip rule and select any of the three logical methods, but do not select any question conditions. Usually, it is a page end skip rule and the last skip rule to test on a page.

Note that a page skip rule without any selected question conditions redirects participants unconditionally. Any skip rules after it will be ignored.

Please click here for an example.

Open your survey in the Advanced mode, click Design, Settings. Enter 30 in the field called Response Time Limit. If a participant can't complete your survey within this time limit, their response will end automatically and they will be redirected to a page with a message saying they have used up the permitted time for taking your survey.

Please leave this field blank if you don't need this feature.

To get contact information, you can create a text box question with multiple line display and ask people to enter the requested information, one on each line. You can also create multiple text box questions, each asking for a different piece of information. Data collected through a text box question with multiple line display will display in multiple lines on our website and in data export.

If you need help from another trusted user about a specific survey, you can add the user as a co-author to the survey. To do this, you have to open your survey in the Advanced mode. This person needs to have an account on our site, and you need this person's username and primary email address. Note that the user is able to view and manage the results of this survey.

You cannot transfer your questions to another user. You can create a campaign, make it searchable, and ask the user to look for your survey. Once the user finds it, the user can replicate all questions into a new survey under the user's account.

Distributing Surveys

A campaign is the application of a survey. A survey itself is just a list of questions. To collect responses, you must create a campaign, through which you are able to specify who can take your survey, when they can take it, who can view its results, etc. For one survey, you can create multiple campaigns for different periods of time, groups of participants, or other reasons. As the creator, you can view, compare, or combine the results from different campaigns of the same survey.

Distribution is a required step within a campaign and specifies how to reach potential participants. We allow you to distribute the survey through web links, email invitations, Facebook, etc. As the survey creator, you are responsible for getting your survey into the hands of your participants. For a campaign, you can create multiple distributions, and you can compare responses from different distributions or analyze them as a whole.

There are many situations where you might want multiple campaigns for a single survey. You might want to compare the responses of people living in different areas, or the responses of people before and after a certain event, such as a political election. Creating multiple campaigns allows you to separate the responses into groups that you can easily compare using our analytical tools.

For a campaign, if you want to get your survey to people through different channels, then you may want to create multiple distributions. For example, you can create a web link distribution and put the link on your Facebook page, and create another web link distribution so that you can send the link directly to participants. You can combine or separate responses from different distributions in the analysis.

The easiest way to provide access to your survey is to create a web link distribution and share it with participants. You can send the link to them or post it on the internet.

First, please make sure that the email addresses you use are correct. We constantly see emails returned to our mail server because of incorrect email addresses.

If an email address is correct, and the intended person did not receive the email, there are two possible reasons. First, the mail server on the recipient's side may be configured in a way that it rejects the emails sent from In this situation, if you can put us in touch with the administrator of the mail server, then we can work with the administrator to resolve the issue. Second, you may want to ask people who haven't received the email to check their spam box.

In many situations, it might be better for you to create a web link distribution for your survey, and send that link to people directly from your own email account instead of using our email service.

At this moment, we don't support personalized emails for each recipient. We may add this feature in the future.

We don't support automatic email reminders. However, as a survey creator, you can re-send invitation emails to those who haven't taken your survey.

You can set up your survey so that only intended participants can take it. To make a survey private, please open your survey and click Campaign, Publish, select No for "Searchable at", and click Save. This ensures that your survey doesn't show up in any search or browse on our website. If you want to further restrict who can take your survey, you have two options.

The first is to use access code, usernames, email addresses, computer addresses, etc. This option is available on the Restrictions page of your campaign. You need to open your survey in the Advanced mode.

The second is to create an Email Invitation distribution. You must know the email addresses of your participants. This option allows you to know who clicked the link of your survey and who actually took it.

Open your survey in the Advanced mode. Click Campaign, Publish, select Yes for "Searchable at", and click Save. Then, open the Share page and do the following:

  • Choose any option other than Never for Whether and When to Share.
  • Check Display "Take this survey"" Link and uncheck all other options under What to Share.
  • Click the Save button.

After you complete these steps, only you can see the results of your survey. You must sign in to see the results.

Open your survey in the Advanced mode. Click Campaign, Publish, select No for "Searchable at", and click Save. Then, open the Share page and do the following:

  • Choose any option other than Never for Whether and When to Share.
  • Check any result option you'd like to share under What to Share.
  • Click the Save button.

Open your survey in the Advanced mode. Click Campaign, Publish, select No for "Searchable at", and click Save. This ensures that your survey won't appear in any search or browse on our website. Further, only you can see the results of your survey, and you must sign in to see the results.

Yes. You can achieve this in two ways:

The first way is to add "" to the "Email Address Domain" field on your campaign's Restriction page. The trade-off is that your participants must register and verify their "" email addresses at AllCounted before taking your survey. The benefit is that you can securely restrict participants to "" email addresses. If you have specific "" email addresses in mind, then you can enter these email addresses in the "Email Address" field on the Restrictions page to allow only these "" email addresses to take your survey.

If you have specific "" email addresses in mind, then you have a second option. You can create an Email Invitation distribution and put these email addresses in the recipients field.

The easiest way is to get the computer IP addresses of your school's network and enter them in the field of Computer Network Address on the Restrictions page of your campaign. Note that participants have to access your survey from within the school's network.

You have a few options. The first is to create an Email Invitation distribution. Our website will ensure that each email address is used only once. You can see which email address corresponds to what response. The trade-off is that email distribution sometimes isn't reliable due to many reasons, and some mail servers may reject emails from our website.

The next option is to create a campaign that requires individual access codes, email addresses, or usernames on the Restrictions page. Our website will guarantee that each code, email address, or username will be used only once. You can see which code, email address, or username corresponds to what response. The trade-off is that the email address or username options require your participants to register on our website before taking your survey.

It appears that people in your school are trying to fill out the survey on the same computer. In this case, the survey creator must set up the survey to permit repeated responses from the same browser, computer, or user account. To do this, open your survey in the Advanced mode, click Design, Settings, and uncheck the following three options under "Prevent Repeated Responses from the Same Participant":

  • One Response per Browser
  • One Response per Computer Address
  • One Response per Account, Individual Access Code, or Email Address in an Email Distribution

If you manually enter those responses on the same computer, then your survey must be set up to allow repeated responses from the same browser, computer, or user account. To do this, open your survey in the Advanced mode, click Design, Settings, and uncheck the following three options under "Prevent Repeated Responses from the Same Participant":

  • One Response per Browser
  • One Response per Computer Address
  • One Response per Account, Individual Access Code, or Email Address in an Email Distribution

You can allow yourself to enter multiple responses to your own survey. Open your survey in the Advanced mode, click Design, Settings, and uncheck the following three options for "Prevent Repeated Responses from the Same Participant":

  • One Response per Browser
  • One Response per Account, Individual Access Code, or Email Address in an Email Distribution
  • One Response per Account, Individual Access Code, or Email Address in an Email Distribution

Yes, as long as a participant uses the same browser when coming back to complete your survey. This feature is very helpful to long surveys.

We provide a number of security measures that survey creators can use to limit who can take their surveys and see results. The creator decides a) whether a survey is searchable, b) who can take it, and c) who can see its results. If you can't find that survey, please ask your friend whether it's searchable and whether you have access to take it. These security measures can be changed at any time and become effective immediately, so allowing you to take the survey should be an easy fix.

You have a few options to track which response came from which person:

  • Use a Text Box question in your survey to ask people to enter their identifying information.
  • Use the Email Invitation distribution. This is the most commonly used method. You need to check Record Email Address for Response.
  • On the Restrictions page of your campaign, use individual access codes. You need to check Record Individual Access Code for Response.
  • On the Restrictions page of your campaign, use usernames. This option requires survey participants to register at AllCounted before taking a survey.
  • On the Restrictions page of your campaign, use email addresses. This option requires survey participants to register at AllCounted before taking a survey.

To see the source of a response, you need to open your survey, click Analyze, Results, Individual Responses, and the Apply button. There is a column called Action for each response, and you can click on the Details button to see the details of a response. The following screenshot shows where to find the email address, access code, or the username associated with a response:

Please note that if you're contacted by survey participants about privacy, you're required to truthfully tell them about whether and how you're tracking their responses.

Yes. For one survey, you can create multiple campaigns or distributions, targeting the same or different groups of people at the same or different times. This allows you to see how respondents' answers to a survey can change over time, or compare responses between different groups. For the survey analysis, you can view combined or separate results. You can even compare results from different campaigns or distributions side-by-side. You can also export combined or separate responses.

If your survey is still live, then you can extend it by entering a new date. You can do this by opening your campaign, clicking Publish, entering a new date, and clicking the Update button. If your survey has already ended, then you can enter a new date by following the same steps and clicking the Reopen button.

Website embed distribution is available only when you work on your survey in the Advanced mode.

We don't have this feature at this moment. The reason is that a survey could produce a large number of responses, which means a big burden on our system to generate and send out so many emails. In addition, the email service providers for the survey creator may deem us as a source of spams. Further, it can unnecessarily inundate the survey creator's mail box.

As the survey creator, you can create a web link distribution for your survey and post that web link, along with the information on your survey, on any web page. When people visit your web page, they can follow the link to your survey at AllCounted. If you have control of the content of a web page, you can also embed your survey (not as a web link) into the page by creating a website embed distribution. That way, participants don't have to come to AllCounted to take your survey. Note that survey results can only be shown at AllCounted's website.

Two conditions must be met for a survey to appear in the search results under "Find by" Subject, Country, Year, or Language. First, the survey must be searchable, which is specified in a survey's campaign. Second, the website visitor must meet the participant restrictions or share requirements that are set by the survey creator in the campaign.

The surveys displayed under "What's Hot" are a special case. First, they have to be searchable and live. In addition, there can't be any participant restrictions in a survey's campaign, and the results have to be shareable with the public. These surveys are usually geared toward important issues with broad public interest.

Survey Results

You can use the filter to only look at the results from the list of those responses that selected Yes on your multiple choice question. You can do so by opening your survey in the Advanced mode. Click Analyze and the Question menu as shown in the following screenshot:

Select the Yes/No question from the Question dropdown list, and you will see the Yes/No choices of this question. Select Yes and click the Apply button. Then you will only see the results from the responses with Yes selected on your multiple choice question. Regarding this filtered list of responses, you can perform various operations, including exporting them into a file.

Yes. Please click here for more information. Please note that you can do cross tabulation not only by questions, but also by campaigns, distributions, or analysis groups.

If used properly, cross tabulation with analysis groups can be a powerful analytical tool. It takes two steps. The first step is to create analysis groups. Find a group of responses that you would like to put together in a group. You can use filters to find the responses that meet your conditions. Then, click "Save as Analysis Group" to give the group a short, descriptive name. You must create at least two analysis groups. Please note that a response can only belong to one analysis group, and analysis groups can never overlap in their responses.

The second step is to click Cross Tabulation under Analyze, Results, View. Then, click "By Analysis Groups", and our system will automatically show the results of different groups side-by-side for each question. You can easily see how responses vary between groups.

You can use the question as a filter to find the desired responses and save them as an analysis group. After that, you can proceed to cross-tabulation with the analysis group as a filter.

First, you have to create two Text Box questions to collect numbers from participants. You must specify that the data type is "Quantitative" for the questions. You should also specify validation requirements regarding what numbers (integers or decimals) to collect or the data range. Non-numeric data entered by participants will be eliminated during regression analysis. After you collect enough data, you can open your survey, click Analyze, Results, Statistical Analysis, and then select linear or polynomial regression, and then click the Apply button. You'll be asked to select a Text Box question as the independent variable and dependent variable. Click the Apply button, and you'll see charts showing data points, lines, and equations. Please click here for more information.

Please click here for more information.

We support the following statistical tools. Please see this guide for more information. If you need a tool that we don't offer, please feel free to let us know, and we'll do our best to suit your need.

  • Percentage on categorical data
  • Percentage, mean, median, mode on ordinal data
  • Mean, median, mode, standard deviation on quantitative data
  • Independent samples student t test
  • One sample student t test
  • Paired samples student t tTest
  • Chi-square test of independence
  • One-way ANOVA
  • Simple linear regression
  • Polynomial regression

We don't directly support separation of responses by language. If you want to analyze the results of each language in your survey, you have two options:

  • Create a single campaign and multiple distributions, one for each language. That way, you can know how people responded in each language, and you can also know how people responded as a whole.
  • Create multiple campaigns, one for each language. For each campaign, you create one distribution. That way, you can know how people responded in each language, and you can also know how people responded as a whole.

For a survey you created, you can export individual responses in text, XML, and Excel formats. You can also export its data trend, summary, and cross tabulation results in PDF.

For someone else's survey, you must be qualified to access its results. If the survey creator allow the public to view the results, or if you're one of the individuals the creator chooses to share the results with, then you'll be able to export whatever results the survey creator has chosen to share.

You can export all the responses you collected into a single Excel or text file. You simply need to open your survey, and then click Analyze, Results, Individual Responses, and the Apply button. After this, click Export, and you'll see the format to download.

Please note that the export time depends on the number of a survey's questions and responses. While waiting for the completion of your download, you can open another browser window or tab to continue using our website.

You have two ways to export text answers. The first is to export all the responses through the Individual Responses view, which will include text answers in each response. The second way is to open your survey and click Analyze to see the Summary view of your survey. For each text question, as well as text answers to the "Other" choice of a multiple choice question, you'll see a menu bar similar to the following. You can download text answers into a text or Excel file.

The best way is to export the survey's responses into an XML or Excel file and import them into the analytical tool of your choice.

As a survey creator, you can see the details of each individual response to your survey. Open your survey, click Analyze, Results, Individual Responses, and the Apply button. Now, you should be looking at the list of responses. Click the Details button in the Action column for the details of a response.

A survey creator can't edit any responses. However, we do allow the survey creator to delete responses, which may change the survey results.

We don't allow participants to modify responses. The only way to change a response is for a survey creator to delete the old response and ask the participant to take the survey again. In most situations, the participant simply needs to take it using a different browser. In other situations, the survey creator must first uncheck the following two options under "Prevent Repeated Responses from the Same Participant" on the Settings page under Design:

  • One Response per Browser
  • One Response per Account, Individual Access Code, or Email Address in an Email Distribution

Only survey creators can delete responses. As the survey creator, you can delete any response from your survey. Open your survey and click Analyze, Results, Individual Responses, and the Apply button. Now, you should see a list of individual responses. There's a column called Action, and there's a delete button in this column for each response. You can use this to delete individual responses.

You can also delete a batch of responses in two other ways. In the Analyze page shown above, you can select a specific set of responses by filtering out other responses. Once you are done filtering, you can click the "Delete Responses" link in the right hand side. This link deletes all the responses that meet the current "Filter by" conditions.

As another way of deleting responses in batch, you can open your survey in the Advanced mode and click Campaign. On this page, you can delete all responses of a particular campaign. On the Distributions page of a campaign, you can delete all responses of a particular distribution.

There are three differences. First, the Private Share will never be searchable. Second, regarding whom to share results with, you can only choose either the public or participants in a campaign's Share. In contrast, you have a lot more control of settings in the Private Share. Third, in a campaign's Share, you have no control over the responses used in showing results such as data trend and summary. In other words, a campaign's Share uses all its responses. For a Private Share, you can show results based on campaigns, distributions, and many other criteria.

Go to the Time Zone page under Account Settings to choose your time zone. If you cannot find your city in the list of available time zones, choose one that is the same time zone as your city. Once you choose your time zone, you can see your local time displayed for each response in the Individual Response view under Analyze.

You can see it in the Advanced mode. On the Campaign page, you can see the total number of likes and dislikes each of your campaigns has received.

You can see it in the Advanced mode. On the Campaign page, you can see the total number of accounts that have added your survey to their watch lists. Note that we don't reveal the names of these accounts.

You can see it in the Advanced mode. If you open a specific campaign, you'll see the Comments page. Clicking on it will show you all the comments your campaign has received to date.

No. You can use the results you find at AllCounted in other places without prior permission. However, you're required to credit the survey creator (if shown in the survey) and AllCounted as the source of the information by explicitly citing the creator of the survey you use, the web link of the survey, and

There are two places to look for the survey creator's contact information: on the survey itself and on their My AllCounted Page. If the creator has chosen to list contact information such as a website or Facebook page, you'll find the information there. In addition, we also provide messaging and friend request functions. If the creator has chosen to enable these functions, you can contact them through one of them.

We only provide services to our users. We don't endorse any surveys or results. It is the user's responsibility to judge a survey and its results. Some factors to consider include, but are not limited to, evaluating the creator's background, the number of responses the survey has received, your familiarity with the creator and topic, and the credibility of the creator.

As a participant, you may be able to have access to the results of some surveys based on how the share requirements are set by survey creators. In order for AllCounted to remember you as a participant in a particular survey, the safest way is to sign into the website, take a survey, and remain signed in while using our website. Another benefit for signing in is that you can track all the surveys you took and how you answered each question. If you don't sign in when taking a survey, then we will treat you as a participant for that survey during your session on the website. If you don't have any website activity for a long period of time, your session will end, and our website won't treat you as a participant any more.

The survey creator decides whether or not to share the results of their survey. The creator has the option to share results either with the general public, only with participants, or with certain individuals. If you can't find a survey's results, please contact the survey creator.

You have four options. The first one is to make your survey searchable at AllCounted. People can find it and its results. This is the easiest way to share results. Just tell people to search for your survey at AllCounted.

However, If your survey contains sensitive business data or asks for personal information such as names, phone numbers, email addresses, and home addresses, you are required to make it non-searchable to protect your business or the privacy of survey participants. To make your survey private, you must select No for "Searchable on AllCounted" when publishing your campaign. In this case, you can still share your results with other people. You need to open your campaign in the Advanced mode. There is a page called Share. Through this page, you can control whether to share, when to share, what to share, and who to share with. On this page, you can find out the links to share results. Please note that sharing through this page is about the results from all the responses collected under a campaign.

The third option is to use private share. It is available in the Advanced mode. Open your survey and click Analyze. You will see a control panel and a few buttons in the middle of the page. One of the buttons is called "Save as Private Share". By private share, you can define the data set to analyze and only share the results about this particular data set. You can even add restrictions to limit the people who can access your shared results. Such restrictions include email address, usernames, access code, etc. Please note that private share is never searchable, and the data set can be created based on any filter conditions. For example, you can combine results of two distributions and create a private share.

The last option is to add people as co-authors of your survey or add them as team members of your account.

Social Networking

We provide comments, messages, like and dislike votes, and friends. They're available through comments in surveys, the link of survey creators, and My AllCounted Page. In order to use our social networking, you must create an account. Once you do that, you can manage these features within your account.
We provide social networking for a few reasons. First, we believe surveys are a mechanism of bringing people together. We also believe that participants are more than just tools to generate data. Moreover, survey participants might need to communicate among themselves, or someone may want to connect with the survey creator. Please note that survey creators and account users can turn on or off all these social networking features at their discretion.

You can network with other people at AllCounted as a survey creator, account user, or survey commenter. As a creator, you can permit other people to message you, send you a friend request, or leave a comment about your survey. Allowing comments about your survey can generate a lot of information about your survey as well as interaction among participants. Such information and interaction could be very helpful to you. You can even grow your audience for future surveys through our features such as friends and friend groups. You can send your survey to a group of friends by simply choosing it without the need to manually enter their email addresses or usernames. As an account user, you have a personal page called My AllCounted Page, through which you can allow others to find and contact you. You can build your network of friends too. As a commenter on a survey, you can allow other people to interact with you and find like-minded friends.

We are aware of such research. Please note the results in such research don't necessarily apply to each survey. Besides, we believe that in today's world, no one can be isolated from the information related to a survey. As a survey creator, you have full control over whether or not to allow comments or like/dislike votes in your survey.

The person you want to add must have an account at AllCounted. You can add a friend directly by entering your friend's username and primary email address on the Friends page. Another option is to send a friend request from the link of a survey creator or a commenter's link. You can also send a friend request through the person's My AllCounted Page. When you send a friend request, the person must accept your request in order for you to become friends mutually.

Friend groups make it easier to manage your network of friends if you have many. Besides, if you create a survey and send it to them, you simply choose a group without the need to manually enter their email addresses or usernames.

Our friend request feature poses little or no risk when you add people you don't personally know. We don't ask our users for sensitive information nor do we keep any on file, so making online friends won't be a cause for concern. In addition, friends don't know each other's email address except usernames unless you give out your username and email address to let the other person add you directly. Note that you have the option of deleting a friend and blocking any account from contacting you.

No. You can't change its appearance or content (listed surveys) in the current version of AllCounted. However, the surveys displayed to a visitor on your My AllCounted Page will only be those that the visitor is allowed to see based on the participation restrictions and share requirements you set on your surveys.

Under Account Settings, you can disable My AllCounted Page and prevent people from seeing your surveys or sending you messages or friend requests. As a survey creator, you can choose not to display your username and other information such as your website and Facebook page in your surveys. You can also disable the comments feature for your particular survey, which will completely block any interaction among participants. As an account user, you can choose not to provide your information such as your website and Facebook page in your account.
