Global Questionnaire

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 prompts for all your various listings. For details on how to set up a Listing-Specific Questionnaire, click here.

To enable a Global Questionnaire:

  1. Navigate to the Listings tab and select Global Settings
  2. In the drop-down, select Global Questionnaire.
  3. Customize to your needs.
