Publish Your Survey or Quiz

You must publish your survey or quiz to make it available to your participants. WebQ allows you to easily set the date you want your survey to be available, and when it should become unavailable.

About Publishing Your Survey or Quiz

Publishing your survey makes it available to your participants. You can set a date that you survey will become available, and also a date when it will become unavailable to participants. The survey or quiz's URL is located in the "About this survey" section on the "Summary" page.

WebQ allows you to publish any one survey as many times as you wish. Each time you publish a survey, you create a new publishing window (a time period during which the survey or quiz is open). You can view and download the results of a selected publishing window separately, or view your data across all publishing windows.
