Add your own content to your survey on Transform. We provide a fee-based customization service for the addition of informed consent, demographic questions, and other instruments (including scoring). This can be a huge timesaver – send us your content and we add it to the survey.
Your data output file will include responses to all survey items including custom questions. Individual or Group Reports will not include custom question results unless you pay to customize the report (see Group Report tab).
Note: We do not offer editing services for added content.
*If you are adding a survey not published by Mind Garden, you must (1) provide the full assessment (instructions, questions, and response format), (2) provide evidence that you have permission to use the instrument, and (3) provide accurate copyright information for the instrument.
1. Email us the name of the survey you will customize (e.g., MLQ-360, MBI-HSS) and the exact text/features you wish to add. These materials must be in a text-editable format (no scans).
2. We send you a firm estimate based on this content. The customization cost is separate from the license cost.
3. Pay for the customizations.
4. We complete your custom form within 5 business days. Then we email you a link to preview your survey. For more extensive customizations, this period may be longer.
5. Preview your custom survey and approve or request edits. Your customization payment includes two editing sessions after the first draft; any additional sessions may be charged at a minimum $50 fee each. Excessive edits may require redesign and may be charged at design rates.
6. We email you instructions to complete a live test of your custom survey. In a live test, you view and complete the survey as if you are a participant. This is your last chance to request edits on your custom survey.
7. Purchase Transform Survey Hosting data licenses for the Mind Garden instrument you chose to customize. When you log into Transform, select your custom survey form and follow the directions to set up your survey campaign and invite your participants.
The minimum price for survey customization is $200. Total price is based on the quantity and type of content you wish to add. Custom questions range from $10-40 each. We can also add informed consent, non- Mind Garden surveys, and scale scoring for additional fees. The customization price does not include the price of Transform Survey Hosting data licenses.

Group Report customization services are available to add text, images, scales, and filtered scores based on your custom survey content. Group Report customization can be a huge help to provide a visual representation of your added items on your custom survey.
One of the most popular features of report customization is adding filters or “breakouts” to the survey scale scores in Group Reports. Examples of this include:
Note: The custom report can only add data that is collected from your custom survey.
Note: We do not offer editing services for added content.

2. We send you a firm estimate for the report customization. This customization cost is separate from the cost of each report.
3. Pay for the customization. Be absolutely certain of the features you request. Changes made after this point will likely result in additional customization fees (this excludes any text and images you requested in your original order).
4. We complete your custom report (delivery speed varies). Then we email you a sample PDF of your custom report. You can begin collecting data while we build your custom report.
5. Preview your custom report and approve or request edits. Your report customization payment includes two limited editing sessions after the first draft. Extensive edits may require redesign and may be charged at design rates.
