Two months ago, we introduced MetroQuest Minute, our new series where we share a short, one-minute video every month about a community engagement tip, strategy, or technique. In case you haven’t seen our March or April MetroQuest Minute videos, I’ll insert links to them here:
- [METROQUEST MINUTE] More Visual, Less Text for Better Public Engagement Surveys: In this 1-minute video, I share an effective solution for keeping your online public engagement surveys short, fun and engaging!
- [METROQUEST MINUTE] Leveraging Community Groups to Increase Your Public Engagement: Our Chief Engagement Officer reveals a strategy to increase your public involvement and engage with hard-to-reach audiences.
For this month’s MetroQuest Minute, I’m excited to share an effective technique to increase your level of public participation and online survey completion rates. Click on the video below to watch:
Feel free to try out the three demo surveys that I shared in the short clip above! These versions do not collect data and will not affect the survey results.

Hi, I’m Norma Hogan with your MetroQuest Minute: the fastest way to stay on top of online community engagement!
When you are creating an online engagement experience like a survey, keep in mind people’s attention spans are short.
In fact, it’s important to design your survey to take no more than five minutes to complete.
It can be a challenge to provide enough context for your project and ask all you want to know within this time constraint.
Here at MetroQuest, our software is tailored to help you design an engaging and informative five-minute survey experience.
For each survey, you can choose five interactive components from our library of fourteen, to match your project needs.
These components, which we call screens, provide a different, interactive experience, and are designed to provide project context while collecting participants’ feedback.
This makes a survey experience fast, engaging and informative.
These capabilities, paired with visuals, project context and more elements built into MetroQuest, allow planners to build a compelling survey experience that gathers more informed public input and meaningful data for your project or plan.
Until next time, we wish you great engagement!
