The new Look & Feel editor in Qualtrics makes it much easier to customize the colors, fonts, and overall theme of a survey without needing to use any code. In this tutorial, we'll go over how to make some simple tweaks to your survey's Look & Feel that will bring it in line with the Kent State look.
To access the Look & Feel editor, navigate to the Survey Editor, then click the "paint roller" icon:
The new Look & Feel editor has seven sections:
Theme: Optionally choose one of Qualtrics's pre-built looks. The first four options (Desktop, Glacier Mountains, Mountain Valleys, Cherry Blossom) are all image-based. The last option, Blank, is ideal for customizing.
Layout: Choose one of four display options for multiple choice questions:
All four templates are mobile-friendly, so your surveys will look good and function well on desktop computers and mobile devices.
General: Controls options that apply to all pages of the survey, including: customizing the labels for the Next and Previous buttons; adding a header (content to display at the top of every survey page); adding a footer (content to display at the bottom of every survey page); adding a progress bar at the top or bottom of the survey page.
Style: Set the colors for the major survey elements (next/previous buttons, selected answers, and banner header), as well as fonts, font sizes, and question spacing.
Motion: Controls animation effects for page transitions, and has options for automatic transitions between questions.
Logo: Optionally add a logo image to top of survey. Logo images can be displayed in a "banner" style (works best if logo has a transparent background) or as a floating logo.
Background: Set the overall background color or image, and/or add a white background "container" behind the question (can make questions easier to read if using a background image).
If you want to apply a Kent State look to your surveys, you can apply the following settings in your survey's Look & Feel section. Before you get started, head over to the official Kent State Brand Guidelines (www.kent.edu/brand) page to download the high-resolution logos and color codes.
NOTE: We typically do not recommend using the Questions Per Page option, especially if your survey uses any skip, display, or branch logic, since Questions Per Page can interfere with the execution of the logic.
While the new Look & Feel builder makes it much easier to customize the appearance of your surveys, there are some customizations that may still require using CSS. These include:
