The website let you create your own Start Stop Continue survey and gather feedback from your co-workers or students. There are a couple features that make the website user-friendly and customizable.
You may want to greet your respondents or provide more context so their response are more meaningful and helpful to you. To achieve this you can add a custom introduction message which will be displayed to people who get a link to your survey. This is an optional feature, not providing introductory message is perfectly fine. If you would like to add this kind of message click the "Want to add something as an introduction?" link and text field will be shown.
By default a survey you create includes three questions corresponding to each of three words describing the Start Stop Continue technique. These are: "What should I start doing?", "What should I stop doing?" and "What should I continue doing?". However you can easily edit these questions in case you want to word them differently, provide more context or translate questions into the language of your choice. Of course you can leave default questions untouched and then it still works.
Whenever someone responds to your survey you receive an email notification with the name of the person, their responses and link to all answers included. The feature lets you learn what others think of your work in the matter of minutes. Please keep in mind you need to provide your e-mail address for this feature to work.
In some teams or situations sharing feedback openly without concealing your identity works fine and brings people closer and helps them improve. However if you want your respondents to feel safer when sharing their thoughts you may check "Make survey anonymous" option at the bottom of the survey form. If it's checked people responding to your survey will not be asked to provide their names. Depending on the situation this may encourage them to reveal their true opinions which in effect can result in more meaningful and actionable feedback for you.
The start-stop-continue.com website does not impose any limits regarding number of answers for a given survey. From what we've seen, sometimes the tool is used by small teams and there are just a couple of responses. On other occasions the number of response is significantly higher, e.g. a lecturer can use the website to gather feedback from students. Any way don't worry about hitting a limit as it simply does not exist.
After you created a survey and sent out a link you will receive feedback. As mentioned before you will receive email notifications as soon as a response is submitted. You can easily read all responses at a unique page. The corresponding link is displayed on the screen after you create your survey and it's also included in email message sent to you.
