For this tutorial, we will select Start a New > Survey. You will be presented the Settings screen for the project.
Type "Acme's Sign And Banner Survey" in the Name and Title fields and set the Layout value to "Item per page". This would render each item on a separate page of the survey. We will use the default values for all other fields.
By default, the page that shows up after the respondent completes the form would contain the message "Thank you for for providing your feedback". You may customize this message by selecting the END PAGE tab and changing the message to "Thank you once again for your time and feedback to this survey".
Click the Create button to save the survey. You are now ready to start adding sections and questions to the survey.
In our tutorial we will insert six sections with different types of items. The first section is automatically added when the survey is created with the name set to "Section 1" and there is no Title for the section. Select Sections > Edit Section to rename this section to "Event Participation" and enter "Event Participation" as the Title for this section.
The first page of the survey will include welcome message and privacy information. Click Add Item > Note to add a description item to the survey.
Set the Notes Item ID to "Introduction" and add the following content into the note text area
Welcome, and thank you for your participation in this brief survey from Acme. We want your input to help us evaluate and improve our offering of sign and banner display products to better suit your needs.
