Survey Properties

To create a new survey:

1. Click the New Survey button.


2. Enter the Name of the survey.

3. Optional: Use the Category drop down menu to select the category you'd like the survey listed in. If you haven't created any categories yet, you can click the add category link to create one.

4. Optional: Check the box under Feedback if you'd like to give participants instant feedback on their surveys. Selecting this option will remove the Submit option from a non-editable survey.

5. Optional: Check the box under Anonymous if you'd like all survey results to be anonymous.

Important: Once this option is selected, it is not reversible. A survey cannot be made anonymous if it has any release conditions or if any release conditions are ever created using the survey as one of the conditions.
