Scenario

As an administrator, content owner, or presenter you want to create a survey so that you can attach it to your events and event types, tracks, courses, articles, or videos.

Solution

  1. Open the Dashboard from the profile menu in the upper-right corner.

  2. Select Surveys on the left and click New Survey.

  3. Enter a survey Title.

  4. Under Survey Questions select a question Type and enter the Question.

  5. To add another question click +Survey Question and repeat the previous step.
    You can click Preview at any time to see how participants will view the survey.

  6. Save the survey when you’re done adding questions.
    The survey is saved in the Surveys dashboard and can now be attached to content items.

    The next step is to attach the survey to a content item. The process for doing this is slightly different for events and non-event content items.
    Check out How to attach surveys to events or How to attach surveys to non-event content items.
