Salesforce Survey Limitations
If your business wants to start using surveys to gather valuable feedback and you’re thinking “But does Salesforce have a survey tool?” Yes! Salesforce offers a powerful survey tool that is designed to help you collect feedback and insights from your stakeholders. While there are numerous benefits to using Salesforce Surveys there are some drawbacks to keep in mind.

Salesforce Surveys does have restrictions when it comes to integrating with certain third-party apps and external systems. It is vital to ensure your data will seamlessly integrate with your existing CRM system. While there are styling options when it comes to customizing your surveys the options are not extensive which can hinder matching your surveys to your organization’s brand. The question types on offer might not cover every survey scenario, and more advanced questions and features might be missing compared to other survey tools. The Salesforce survey builder might not support complex logic and branching, depending on your survey needs you might encounter limitations when creating intricate logic paths for your survey. Salesforce can constrain the respondent experience due to the platform’s customization options, which can impact engagement and response rates.
