Survey filters create a subset of results based on conditions that you specify. This makes it easy to segment results by how participants answered a particular question. For example, if you have a customer satisfaction survey, with a question that asks participants to rate their satisfaction with your company on a scale of one-five, you can create a filter to include data only from those who rated your company a three or lower. That way, you can personally follow up with customers who may have had a bad experience and learn how to do better the next time. You could also create a filter to show data only from those who rated your service a four or higher. That way, you can follow up with those customers to find out what they love about your company. Those are just two simple examples. You can create data filters to segment your results any way that you see fit
