Adding Operational Quotas in QuickSurveys
Adding Operational Quotas in QuickSurveys

Do you find yourself in a situation where you need to limit the number or percentage of respondents who answer a question a certain way? For example: You are launching a survey about movies. One of the multiple choice questions asks respondents what type of movies they and enjoy and you want to make sure there is a maximum 30% who choose “Action” and a maximum of 30% that “Adventure.”

To achieve this, you can set an operational quota in QuickSurveys from the Survey Logic Page.


Creating Operational Quotas

From the Build Page, click on Survey Logic


On the Survey Logic Page, click on “ADD NEW QUOTA


In the Edit Condition window, click on the Page and then on the question that you want to add a quota to and then click Next


Enter a Quota Name at the top and check off the “Use Percentage” Box if you want to set % quotas (leaving the box unchecked will allow you to set number of respondents rather than %)

Next to the answers, enter any quotas you are looking to set

Select the action you expect when a quota is filled. The action will determine what happens to a respondent after the particular quota group has been filled.

Click Next


Resulting page looks like below:



In this scenario, we see that once 30% of our potential respondent base has selected “Action” and 30% of our potential respondent base has selected “ “Adventure” additional respondents will then be categorized as “Quota Full.”

Once thing to keep in mind – Operational quotas are set at the question level. If you have termination points in the survey where respondents can potentially screen out, it may impact the quota you have on completes by marking potential screen outs as such.
