Copy an existing survey

Table of contents

    How can I copy a survey?

    To copy a survey, firstly click Create a survey on the start page of your Netigate account. You should then select Copy a survey to create a new copy of an existing survey. This new copy can include all existing questions, settings, logic and E-mail/SMS texts, etc.

    This function will create a completely separate version of the survey; it will not merge with an existing one.

    From this page, you can access all surveys available for your account, which means your own surveys as well as the Netigate library.

    Copy from the Netigate library

    The Netigate question library was created by Netigate specifically for your use and you can copy questions or get inspiration for new questions or surveys. In the library, you will find different surveys to a number of subjects and it is possible to copy all of them to your Netigate account.

    In this menu, there is general information about the survey with the survey name, start and end date, and in what language the survey was originally created.

    You may also click  in order to get a preview of the specific survey.

    Click the option Add this survey to select which survey you wish to copy. You will get a new selection where you will need to enter the survey’s name, category and start/end date. The survey start date will be automatically set to today and the end date is set to two weeks later, but you can, of course, adjust these dates to match your project. In addition, you will select whether you wish to include advanced logic (the possibility to copy existing, skip, and hide-logic etc.). If you wish to copy an existing sendout you can assign that by marking the checkbox Select next to the sendout that you wish to include.

    When you have filled out all of the information, click Create to create the new copy of the survey or Cancel to dismiss the copy without creating anything. After the new copy is created you will automatically be forwarded to it, so you can start working immediately and make any necessary changes or updates.

    Copy your own survey

    You can also copy one of your own surveys. The general process is exactly the same. After you have clicked copy a survey you will be redirected to the window listing all your surveys, sorted by folder. In this menu, there is general information about the survey with the survey name, start and end date, and in what language the survey was originally created.

    You may also click  in order to get a preview of the specific survey.

    You can select any of your own surveys. To copy it, click the option Add this survey to select which survey you wish to copy. You will get a new selection where you will need to enter the survey’s name, category and start/end date.

    Please note that only active surveys can be copied. Archived surveys cannot be copied and need to be reactivated before they can be copied.

    Activate an archived survey

    If you want to copy an already archived survey, you will need to reactivate it first. Make sure that you have Delete-Rights (user management).

    1. Go to your survey overview
    2. Click on the Deleted or Archived Button
    3. From the list of deleted or archived surveys, find the one that you want to reactivate. Click the back arrow button to the right of your survey’s name. This will restore your survey.

    bin and archive

    Now you can work with the survey normally again which includes being able to copy it.
