Enabling webinar surveys in Zoom App

This post was most recently updated on July 22nd, 2022

A Zoom Webinar host can present a survey to attendees once the Zoom Webinar has taken place by enabling Webinar Survey. It is also possible to offer a third-party survey service as an alternative to Zoom’s native webinar survey feature as well, such as Google Forms or Survey Monkey, in case you do not want to use Zoom’s native survey feature.

If you want to allow participants to participate in surveys after Zoom meetings, you can also enable that feature. See how enabling meeting surveys can help you get the most out of your meetings.
