In managing a homeowners association (HOA), understanding the needs and preferences of your residents is key. Neighborhood.Online provides two user-friendly tools for this purpose: the Quick survey feature and the Comprehensive Survey feature. Each serves a unique role in collecting resident input, from simple surveys to more detailed feedback. Let’s explore how to effectively use these tools.

Quick survey 

The Quick survey feature in Neighborhood.Online offers a streamlined method to ask a single question to your community. Here’s how to utilize it:

  • Question Setup: Enter your question in the designated area. Ensure it’s clear and straightforward.
  • Participant Selection: Choose whether all residents or only registered users can participate in the survey. This depends on the type of feedback you’re seeking.
  • Response Options: In the provided area, add possible answers for residents to select. Once all options are added, you can easily embed the survey into your community page.
  • Results Analysis: To review the survey results, you’ll find them conveniently located in a specific section on your dashboard. This allows for easy assessment and informed community decision-making.

Comprehensive Form Survey

For more detailed resident feedback, using the form block is ideal. It allows for the creation of in-depth surveys, with accessible results in a designated dashboard area. Features include:

  • Form Customization: Add various types of questions, ensuring important ones are marked as required.
  • Diverse Question Types: This includes single-line text fields, larger text areas for extended feedback, checkboxes for multiple selections, date/time pickers, image/file upload options, and more.
  • Specific Fields: Utilize fields for numeric inputs, dropdown lists, address and phone number formats, URL and email inputs, rating scales, and calendar selections, among others.
  • Editing Flexibility: Adjust your questions or their order easily with a user-friendly interface.
  • Submission Options: Choose to store survey responses on the site or opt for email confirmations. You can also organize results in specific folders for streamlined management.

These features ensure that your surveys are not only effective in gathering information but also integral in engaging with your residents.


Whether you choose the simplicity of the Quick Survey or the comprehensive approach of the Survey feature, Neighborhood.Online equips you with the tools necessary for effective resident engagement. Both options are designed to be intuitive and seamlessly integrate into your HOA’s online platform. By using these tools, you can gather valuable insights to guide decision-making and enhance the living experience in your community.
