Cloning a survey

< All Topics

Cloning a survey creates a new survey which is identical to the original survey. Once you have created a cloned survey you can modify it. This is useful if you repeat a survey on a month by month or year by year basis.

When a survey is copied all the details of the variables, analyses, reports and weights are copied to the new survey. There is an option to choose whether the response data is copied to the new survey.

A survey can be cloned as either an online survey or an offline survey. This can be used to archive an online survey or to convert an offline survey to use Snap Online.
