Why use feedback forms?
Applying online feedback forms to your Magento website can help you gauge which issues your customers are running into, why they are aren’t converting, and much more. Depending on the tool, these forms can usually be deployed on various pages and in a number of different ways, including via triggers such as exit intent, time on page or scrolling.
Feedback forms also often include a short series of questions that will make it easy for your visitors to submit their feedback in detail without taking too much of their time.
What should you ask in your feedback forms?
There are a number of different metrics as well as research elements you can choose to work with and add to your feedback forms.
Here is a short overview of the most popular metrics:
- For optimising ‘page’ usability: You can use a passive feedback form (e.g. a feedback button in the app navigation) or visual feedback (e.g. users can add a screenshot if things aren’t functioning properly). This is the most universal option for collecting feedback.
- For understanding / improving Customer Loyalty: Use Net Promoter Score (NPS) or Customer Satisfaction (CSAT) and open comments.
- For improving online (sales) funnels: Use Goal Completion Rate (GCR) or Customer Effort Score (CES) and open comments.

There are also several research elements you can incorporate into your form:
- Single line input/text area: for capturing open-ended feedback from users.
- Radio button/dropdown: With these elements users can only select one option (e.g. compliment, bug, suggestions, content, etc).
- Checkbox: this element enables users to collect multiple answers from visitors in case more than one option applies.
- Contact details: this is a great element for users who want to follow-up on feedback items.
