The most common method for collecting feedback through CustomerSure is email. At the right time, you send a short, polite email from our software asking customers to fill in your survey. We call them Feedback Request Emails.
The idea is to give each customer an easy way to tell you whether they’re completely satisfied each time you’ve supplied a product or service. The email they receive contains a link to your survey, which your customer will click on.
Here is an example email sent from our software.
You can have as many email designs as you need, and you can set the content and the look and feel of each one. You can also ask your first question directly in your email. See manage your email templates for more help.
Scheduling feedback request emails
There are numerous ways to schedule (create) feedback request emails. The following two help pages guide you through the options:
- Schedule emails automatically (i.e. triggered by your existing business software)
- Schedule emails manually (i.e. triggered by you uploading a report)
Managing feedback request emails
Sending feedback request emails from CustomerSure offers you many benefits over sending them from your own email system.
Schedule in advance
Feedback request emails are usually scheduled for a future send time. This can vary from a few minutes to a few
months depending on the trigger/method that created them. Until the send time arrives for each email, you can view and
manage them from a pending email list here:
Feedback Requests → Pending Emails
View the email history
You can view the entire email history to date on your account. This page will also show you whether
emails are being delivered, or helpful messages if they were not. View the email history here:
Feedback Requests → Response Rates
Track response rates
You can view your response rates, and see exactly how customers are interacting with your emails and survey here:
Reports → Emails History
Edit, delay, send or cancel pending emails
Clicking on the pending button next to a feedback request lets you send it
instantly, cancel it, unsubscribe the customer or edit the details (Email address, send time, email template or
Feedback Requests → Pending
View and manage your unsubscribe list
If you would like to permanently exclude someone from feedback request emails you can add them to your unsubscribe
Company Settings → Email Sending Rules → Unsubscribe List

Redirect one email address to another
Sometimes your source data only has one email address per customer, but that may not be the best person at the
company to ask for feedback. We solve this problem by letting you set up redirects from one email address to another.
For example you could set it up so that emails to an accounting department such as "email@example.com"
get redirected to a person like "firstname.lastname@example.org" instead. You can do that here:
Company Settings → Email Sending Rules → Email Redirect
Ensure customers aren’t over-surveyed
CustomerSure has an optional built in safety net to ensure you don’t email customers too often. Find out more on the avoid over-surveying customers help page.
Prevent all emails from being sent
If for some reason you need to prevent all emails from being sent (perhaps an integration is misbehaving) you can turn
them off entirely:
Company Settings → Email Sending Rules → Kill Switch
