How to Troubleshoot Your Surveys When Not Displaying

 

Troubleshoot issues related to the display of Qualaroo surveys on your website. If you find that your surveys are not appearing as expected, follow these steps to identify and resolve the problem.

 

Verify the Activation Scheduler

 

Problem: Surveys may not display if the activation scheduler is misconfigured.

 

Solution: To ensure your survey remains active for the desired duration, check the activation scheduler settings in the TARGETING section for your survey. Adjust the deactivation date if necessary.

Confirm the Presence of Qualaroo Code

 

Problem: The absence of Qualaroo code can prevent surveys from displaying.

 

Solution:

  1. Right-click on your survey page and select "View Page Source."
  2. Search for "kiq" in the page source to confirm the Qualaroo code block's presence below the <body> tag.

Check Domain-Specific JavaScript Code

Solution: Compare the JavaScript code in your Qualaroo account to the code on your website to ensure they match.

Verify Survey Configuration for the Correct URL

 

Problem: Incorrect URL configuration can lead to surveys not displaying on the intended pages.

 

Solution: Ensure the URL of the page matches the URL pattern for which the survey is configured.

Test Survey Display

 

Problem: Surveys may not display due to targeting conditions not being met.

 

Solution: To force a survey to display for testing purposes, append "?qualaroo_preview" to the URL (e.g., http://proprofs.com/?qualaroo_preview). If it displays, review your targeting conditions to ensure they align with visitor behavior.

 

Avoid Multiple Surveys Targeting the Same Group

 

Problem: Having multiple surveys targeting the same group can lead to inconsistent results.

 

Solution: It is recommended to avoid this setup. Qualaroo defaults to displaying the first created survey in such cases. Adjust targeting or pause and run surveys at different times for more predictable results.

 

Verify Browser Compatibility

 

Problem: Outdated web browsers may not support Qualaroo surveys.

 

Solution: Ensure your visitors are using up-to-date web browsers that are compatible with Qualaroo surveys.

 

Handle Special Characters in Target URLs

 

Problem: Special characters in URLs can cause issues.

 

Solution:

  • For letters (A-Z, a-z) and numbers (0-9), no changes are needed.
  • Characters '.', '-', '~', and '_' should also be left as-is.
  • Replace spaces with '+'.
  • For all other characters, encode them as %xx. For example, replace double quotation marks with %22.

 

Handling URLs with Query Strings

 

Problem: URLs with query strings require special handling.

 

Solution: To target pages with query strings, use Regular Expressions and click "Validate this regular expression(recommended)."
