Anonymous with survey access codes A survey that can be answered by anyone with access to the survey link who has the common survey password - one password for all respondents. Respondents remain completely anonymous.
Invitational A survey that is distributed to a pool of known respondents. Each invitee is provided with a unique ID/password with which to access the survey, which also serves as a respondent identifier.
Multi-rater surveys All variants of upward feedback, team, 180° and 360° surveys. Each respondent gets a personalised web menu of questionnaires for each person they are answering about, together with their role with regard to the person (manager, peer, subordinate, etc). As they progress through their menu, the numbers of questionnaires diminish.

Our Survey Manager software allows for user-selected respondents
Questionnaires are presented in a single menu for multiple recipients
