5. Select Sync all responses to SurveyMonkey’s Response object if you want to send the response to SurveyMonkey for each question answered when the customer completes the entire survey. The responses save in Survey Results object which comes with SurveyMonkey app in salesforce.

Select Sync partial responses to Salesforce if you want to send the response to SurveyMonkey for each question answered each time a customer finishes a page of your survey. The responses save in Survey Results object which comes with SurveyMonkey app in salesforce.

If you only need to use survey fields to create or update fields on an existing Salesforce object, you don’t need to use either of these options.

6. Click ‘Add Field Mapping’ to add a field mapping in the Survey Field Mappings table and choose how a survey field maps to a salesforce object field. You can also set default values for the survey.

7. After mapping is done click on ‘SAVE OBJECT’.

8. You can map to as many as salesforce objects by clicking on ‘Add Object Mapping’.

9. After saving the object you will be directed to Deployment Options. SurveyMonkey offers two ways to send your invite, both directly related to the collector type you choose:

Web Link – A custom survey URL that you can paste into a Salesforce distributed email.

The salesforce custom weblink contains special code at the end that links your survey results to the salesforce custom objects you have mapped it to.

Sample URL:{!LastName_value}&ds_Contact_Id={!Contact.Id}

Email Invitation – A URL that you paste into a Salesforce outbound message action. This Email Invitation method generates a unique callback Trigger URL to use in a Salesforce workflow rule with an outbound email action.

10. You can choose an existing collector or create a new one.

11. Click on ‘SAVE MAPPING’ then create the web link or email invitation URL and confirm.

When a customer completes the survey, the survey result will save in the object which you have mapped within SurveyMonkey. You can use the response to analyze the use of reports and dashboards.
