Surveys to general public

  Asked By: Nishita    Date: Mar 08    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2620

Anyone know if it is possible to use the Sharepoint survey tool to build
and deploy a survey to the general public while keeping security intact
around the rest of the site?

However, I am confused by your statement "
One of the survey  tools is available for integration...". I was under
the impression that Sharepoint only shipped with one survey building
tool. By "integration" are you suggesting that by adding a different
tool I can solve the problem of opening permissions to a survey to the
general public?

By one of survey  tools, I meant was for Sharepoint Portal Server.Itz
was third party tool.I had got the reference from mailing list.
But I think you are mentioning about Sahrepoint Team Services Survey

As far as I know independant permissions or different security  model
can't be assigned in Sharepoint Team Services.

One of the options or a work around is to create altogether a different
Team site  with access permissions to general  public and the access to
the survey can be made from a public  area on your site.

(this assumes SPS V2)
Yes, in a way. You create a topic area or subarea and apply the security
to it. Then create your survey  through that (in the Manage Content under
the Actions Menu).

1. Click Manage Content
2. Click Create to get the full list of what you can create
3. Select Survey from the list
4. Create your survey as normal

There should be a way to move a survey from another area to this one but
depending on what type of template you use to create the subarea
dictates what type of content you can see. You can always add a webpart
to an area that will expose the survey for you.
