Fundamentally, a survey is a method of gathering information from a sample of people, traditionally with the intention of generalising the results to a larger population. Surveys provide a critical source of data and insights for nearly everyone engaged in the information economy, from businesses and the media to government and academics. A survey is a list of questions aimed for extracting specific data from a particular group of people. 

Surveys are key forms for organizations to identify product requirements, satisfaction levels, feedback, and many other aspects of the client. As the world has shifted to the usage of digital technology, as well as advancements in communication, surveys are now available in digital format. Previously, surveys were aspects that were filled out when in retail places, which all of you must have done while acquiring electronic equipment or shopping at the grocery. You will be able to define your website surveys on both consumer and employee factors with the help of the Odoo surveys module. 

Survey research is often used to assess thoughts, opinions and feelings. Surveys are the most reliable technique to obtain real judgment from your customers. 

There are many platforms available to carry out a survey, among them online surveys are an easy and efficient means to reach the targeted audience. With the help of survey software, you can create questionnaires, gather information, and analyze the collected data efficiently.

The two types of surveys most typically used in an organization to assess the operation of an organization. The two types of surveys are Market Research or Customer Feedback,  and  Employee satisfaction and Requirements surveys.

Market Research or Customer Feedback : These surveys can assist you in understanding industry trends and in changing your marketing as well as items.

Another type of survey that is constantly presented to customers is feedback surveys, which may be designed and explained to learn about client feedback on the products and services that they have acquired. It used to be in the form of pen and paper, but now it’s available online. 

Employee satisfaction and Requirements surveys : Employee satisfaction is an important aspect of any organization, and you should always be able to check on it at a higher level. For this you can create employee-based surveys and analyze the satisfaction index on them. 

Employee requirements surveys are typical decision-based surveys for employees that might be based on the need for particular facilities in the firm such as a coffee machine or a decision on a salary raise or any of the company’s inhouse requirements or decisions. 

Odoo Survey Module : Odoo Survey Module is one of the tools that will help define customized Surveys and run them effectively. With the Odoo surveys module, you will be able to run the online surveys based on the functional and operational needs of the beneficiary.

People often find difficulties in recording their responses and organizing the collected feedback. But Odoo enables easy submission of responses through the survey module and it records all data from the survey for further analysis. It is quite easy to create new surveys and publish them on the website. 

The Survey module is available in Odoo by default and you can Install this from the application module in Odoo.
