At SurveyCTO, we understand that while the experience of learning a new tool can be exciting, it can also be overwhelming. Over the years, we have created a wide range of supporting material to help our users in their understanding of the platform. Still, we realize that most of you are trying to meet tight deadlines while you are exploring and learning how to design and conduct data collection projects, so it can be challenging to find your way around so much information. If you are facing this challenge, you are not alone! In this article, we want to make sure that you can make the best use of our resources and find the answers to your questions more quickly.
Depending on your needs and questions, you can find the relevant SurveyCTO resources in the following locations (click the titles in the Resources column to jump to that section below).

The product documentation site is also a gateway to SurveyCTO’s other resources such as the support center, blog, and video library. Just scroll down on the landing page for their descriptions and direct access:
