View your answers and reply to your respondents

Once you've created and shared your videoask, you'll start seeing the responses rolling in!

Checking your responses and replying to respondents is the best part of VideoAsk - it's where you really get to learn from and connect with your leads, customers, or students. ūü§ó

In your dashboard, you can view the responses you've received to each one of your videoasks. And, if you have enabled a contact form and the respondent left their contact details, you can reply to them with a video message!


Bear in mind that responses will look different depending on the answer types you have used in your videoask, because each answer type collects a different type of data.

To view a summary of all your response data, you can view it in the metrics tab or download it at any time as a .csv or .xlsx file.

Add overlay text to your response if desired, including links.



If you include overlay text, you can choose the text size, when the text will appear, and whether to darken the video for better readability.
