survey is a kind of list where you can create questions
that other users can answer. You can use surveys for all
kinds of questions, from simple lunch meeting setups to
advanced questionnaires about work processes.
In the demos below Peter Kalmström, CEO and Systems Designer
of kalmstrom.com Business Solutions, explains how to create
and respond to a SharePoint Survey. He also explains how
you can study the results.
Create a survey
Open the Office 365 settings from the top right
corner of the Office 365 page and select ‘Add an app’.
Click on ‘Survey App’ to create a new SharePoint
survey. A pop-up will open where you can enter your
survey name and click on Create.
Open the new survey.
Expand the accordion Settings and select ‘Add Questions’.
There are several options to choose from depending on
what type of response you want to collect: Rating Scale,
Choice with Drop-Down Menu or Radio Buttons and Number
are among the common response types you can choose from.
When you have added the first question, click Next
Question to add more questions and repeat the process.
Click Finish when all questions are added.
Some answers need a follow up question, while other answers
don’t, and for that you can use the Branching Logic. After
you have entered your questions, open the question that
should have a Branching Logic. Under Jump To you can select
the correct question to come next for those answers that
should not have all questions.
Add Survey to Quick launch
Go to survey settings from the Settings accordion.
A Settings window will open. Click on ‘List name,
description and navigation’.
Under the General Settings select radio button Yes
for Display this survey on the quick launch?
Click on Save.
Respond to a survey

Once answers to a survey have been submitted, you can see

in the Survey dashboard or by clicking on ‘Export to Spreadsheet’
under Action Once you have exported the results to an Excel
spreadsheet you just have to refresh it to have new responses
