Questionnaires collect additional information from your customers after they complete checkout. What is included in the Questionnaire is completely customizable, and it can be set up as Global or Listing-Specific. A Questionnaire can be skipped in the back office by a Xola user (it can always be updated in the customer purchase), but customers must complete them if they book through your website checkout.
The following details how to set up a Questionnaire in Global Settings, meaning you'll have one Questionnaire that prompted for all your various listings. For details on how to set up a Listing-Specific Questionnaire, click here.
