Description: Describes how to format your survey or form for display on a mobile phone

    The Palm envelope uses very little formatting in order to make your survey easy to view on the small monitors of mobile phones.

  2. To see how your survey will look, click Preview.

  3. To save your survey with this new setting, click Save.


It is advisable not to include large graphics in your phone-based survey. Large graphics take longer to download on a mobile phone and they can interfere with viewing the survey because they occupy more screen space than text.
Test your survey on a mobile phone browser before you send your survey.
