The survey tool can make the process of redacting and republishing the mountain of submissions you receive during a statutory consultation process easier.
Create a form for collecting the submissions in the exact same way as you would create a survey form, read the detailed instructions in the article on Add and Manage Surveys and Forms.
An example form created for submissions is shown below
This displays in the front end as shown below
Once submissions are completed by the participants, you can view your submissions by downloading the survey report.
An example survey report is illustrated below. The link (highlighted in a box) should be clicked on to access the file uploaded by the participant.
As the next step, you can also view and manage the documents uploaded by participants using the feature called Submissions Manager.
When your submission period is complete you can choose to publish the content of your choosing in the document library widget. To display the uploaded documents by users in your project, we recommend to use the Publish option in the Submission Manager.
