AI-generated themes for surveys

  • Available for customers on UserTesting's Ultimate plans.
  • Get insights into the "why" behind survey responses without manual analysis, as themes are AI-generated.
  • Themes are generated automatically once 20 participants have completed the survey.
  • Written responses are automatically grouped by themes.
  • A single answer may be classed into more than one theme.
  • “Mentions” refers to how many answers mention a theme.
  • Themes may change as more participants complete the survey.
  • Select “Responses” to see all written responses.
  • You can click on “View responses” under each theme to see all the responses that relate to a theme.
  • Survey themes are displayed in English only, regardless of the language contributors write in.

  • Non-Ultimate customers will see a word cloud.



Filtering survey results

  • You can now filter and save the filters to view results by Participant, Audience, or Question type, or add an ‘OR’ or ‘AND’ operator to narrow down the parameters even further to isolate certain segments or compare results across multiple segments. 
  • Filtered results can then be exported in their entirety to .xls. 
  • Filters are only visible by the person who creates them and do not persist across Workspaces.
