For Plus and Premium Remind Hub district or school administrators. Please contact your Customer Success Manager if you're not sure whether your organization has this feature. If you're a teacher or class owner, please click here. Web only.
Use our Surveys feature to collect meaningful, up-to-date information from your community right from within your Remind dashboard. Sending a survey is a great way to give your community members the opportunity to voice their opinions and ideas, and it's a quick and simple way to obtain actionable feedback throughout the year.
When you send out a survey, recipients only have to click on the link you sent them to access it; they don't have to worry about logging in. Also, our survey tool automatically gathers data your organization has shared with Remind (such as name, role, and contact information). Survey recipients can focus on answering more engaging questions that will give you insight into their needs.
We compile survey responses into an easy-to-read chart and CSV file so you can share the data and analyze it within the context of your district, school, and/or class goal(s). Use Surveys to reach your community, obtain data you can use to continuously improve, and build a stronger relationship with your community.

Things to keep in mind
Class owners create and edit surveys as well as view results for the classes they own or co-own, while school and district administrators can do so for all of their associated classes, schools, and/or districts.
District administrators, school administrators, and/or class owners can continue to edit surveys they have access to that are in the draft state. Do not make edits at the same time to avoid losing changes.
Survey results will automatically include the name, grade, role, school, preferred language, student ID as well as the phone number and/or email address of survey recipients if your organization already shares these user details with Remind. Only district and school administrators can view contact information.
