By default we will send your surveys from an AskNicely email address (, but it's a good idea to set up your own domain to send these from in your Account settings. This means your customers will see your email address, so might be more likely to open and respond (anything to increase open rates is a good thing!). 

Click on the cog wheel in the top-right, and then select Settings from the drop down. Then choose "Domain" in the left hand side. 

Step one
Enter your domain in the address box and then click save. This is just the end part of your email address, anything after the "@" symbol.

Step Two
You might need some help from your email administrator or tech support team here! All they need to do is update a couple of settings in the backend; the details they need to copy/paste are on this part of your Domain settings page. 

If you are a larger company, there is a possibility that you have too many emails on your domain (we are not able to set it up if there is more than 10). In this case, your email administrator can create a subdomain for us to send these from, and pop that back in Step One instead. You need to be able to receive emails to the address, so make sure that it is set up to do that. 

Step Three
Next we need to just verify the email address. Enter an email address with that domain, and click "Send verification link". We will send you an email with a special link in it (this should come from Mandrill, which is the email server). 

Once you get the email, copy and paste the verification link back in to Domain settings page and click Verify Link.

Step Four
Almost done! Just enter the email address you want these to be sent from, and
that's it. 

There can be a lot of autoresponders, so the default is noreply. You are able to change this to "feedback" or "customercare" or another fun name, but it is encouraged at that point that the email actually exist.
