WordFly survey pages allow you to collect subscriber feedback. Send a post-show or event follow up survey, collect customer service information, or use the form in any number of ways. Publish your Survey Pages and watch event responses load in the Results page, then export your data as a CSV file to review data across all participants.


When you create a new page, multiple files are saved into a media folder for that page. A Survey page set consists of two HTML pages + CSS files:

  • Form
  • Confirmation



  • The Submit block is required for the page to post data. This form block can be moved around in the design but cannot be deleted.
  • Any Form block can be marked as required.
  • To carry styles through the whole Survey page set, modify styles from Stylesheet > General Styles or All Blocks.
  • To link to other published pages when adding URLs to your survey, click Browse Pages
  • There are two Public URL options: One to tie responses to subscribers for an email and one to collect anonymous responses. Learn more
  • The Results page will display real data after the pages are published and have collected responses. Open the Download drawer to export a CSV file. Learn more

Test survey pages

From the Survey Settings page, you can test your Survey Page Set using the Testing URL. Use this URL within your organization to test your page in multiple browsers before you publish it. Fields can be filled out, but the data will not be saved.



Publish/unpublish survey pages


From the Survey Settings page, click on the Publish button to make your pages live. Confirm you would like to make your page set live by clicking Yes from the confirmation dropdown notification. 

The Public URL is the URL your subscribers will see. Copy the correct Public URL to tie responses to subscribers for an email or collect anonymous responses. Any data entered from the public URL will be saved and accessible from the Survey Results page.

Once a page set is published, any edits (saved changes) will be available on your public page after clicking sync. Click Edit to make changes.

To disable a live page set click on the Unpublish button from the Survey Settings page. Once a page is unpublished the public link will no longer be available and a default unavailable page will display if the link is accessed.


Or, from the Pages library, select your page name and click Unpublish.
