QuickSurveys: Improve wording of external surveys answers
Closed, DeclinedPublic


Currently it isn't possible to use custom answers with QuickSurveys external surveys. See: T316911

The issue is that the the response rate for those surveys is usually quite low (0.4%) and a simple and straightforward wording may encourage participation.

We propose to replace:

  • ext-quicksurveys-external-survey-yes-button from Visit survey to Yes
  • ext-quicksurveys-external-survey-no-button from No thanks to No

For the past year, at least, all of the external surveys exhibited at the official wikis were from Design Research. We think this change will be an improvement and, hopefully, will result in us reaching our participation goals with less exhibitions.
