Freshsurvey V3+ Bug Fixes
In this release, we have addressed several issues to ensure a smoother and more efficient survey process. Here are the key bug fixes:
1) 'View' Button from Response List Page
Issue: Clicking on the 'View' button from the Response list page was directing users to an Invalid URL page.
Fix: We've resolved this issue, and now clicking on 'View' will correctly direct you to the survey response, providing a seamless experience for viewing and analyzing your survey data.
2) Long Text Answer Formatting
Issue: Long text answers were not accepting new lines, resulting in all text being added as a single paragraph.
Fix: We've fixed this issue, and long text answers will now properly format new lines, making responses more readable and structured.
3) Survey Link from Email Embed
Issue: Clicking on a survey link from an email embed was sometimes leading users to a 'We are sorry' error page.
Fix: We've addressed this issue, ensuring that survey links from email embeds direct users to the intended survey, eliminating any 'We are sorry' errors.
4) Web App Embed Responsiveness
Issue: The web app embed was not rendering responsively when viewed in a mobile web browser, impacting the user experience.
Fix: We've enhanced the responsiveness of the web app embed to ensure it displays correctly and provides a smooth user experience when accessed from mobile devices.
