As sole practitioners, we often have to be selective about resources and tools, finding the right functionality at an affordable price. Not free, but not exorbitant either, particularly if you can't spread the investment out over multiple users. So today I curious what others are using for surveys. Yes, Survey Monkey is one obvious option, but what else have you found that meets your needs? For me, there are a few features I look for: (1) I don't administer surveys regularly or with one common set of questions, so I often tailor a small set of questions to the engagement, some open-ended, some structured response. (2) Ease of set up and administration, (3) Getting responses in a useful format, either with tables and summaries I can import into a presentation deck, and ideally have some options about what type of presentation figures/tables. As a sole practitioner, what have you found that you like for the features and value?
