Survey Access

  Asked By: Travon    Date: Jun 15    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1445

If a user creates a Survey on their site, and sets the audience to
"All Portal Users" shouldn't any portal user be able to get to the
link if it is in a list in a public part of the portal? I have all my

Are they unable to access  the survey  or unable to submit a response? Or
are they not seeing the link at all?

The user  (actually me logged into a test account) clicks on the link

Sounds like the survey  hasn't been setup to allow the Reader role to Add
Items. You will need to adjust the area security that the survey is in
to allow the Reader role to Add New Items. Otherwise they won't be able

own, and definitely move it off the Home level if that is where it
happens to reside now. When you edit an area's security, if affects
every list/library on that area, hence why I recommend storing the
survey on an area of its own.

Interesting. OK, I'm creating an area called 'Surveys.'
Cryptic, no? I customized the Reader Role on it.
Will it work if I don't show it in the Navigation?

Access to the Results. I don't see anywhere you can do item level
permissions on surveys. Just lists? The thing is I have a survey  I
created for our Fleet Mgt staff. They need to have access  to just
these results. I don't want to give everyone access to these results.
And I don't want to give them access to other forms that are not
