To get started with surveys on Collage navigate to the surveys section from the menu bar on the left side of the screen.

Creating a survey
To start creating your survey, click the blue Create New Survey button on the top right of the page while under the survey tab. You will be directed to a Survey creation flow.
1. Name your survey
The first step to creating your survey is to name it. Pick a name that represents the survey and its intention.
At this point you can also choose whether you'd like your survey to be anonymous. This will allow employee responses to be anonymized when viewed.
2. Adding and Remove Questions
Now it is time to create the questions for your survey!
To add a new question to the survey select + Add a Question. This will open a popup allowing you to select the answer type. There are four answer types:
The Sentiment type allows employees to answer a question with an answer on a scale of 5. By default the answers are Strongly Disagree, Disagree, Neutral, Agree, and Strongly Agree, but these answers can be edited.
The Single-line text type allows employees to answer a question with a longer-form single-line answer instead of choosing from a list of answers.
Multiple choice (single answer)
The Multiple choice (single answer) type allows employees to choose 1 answer from a list of answers.
Multiple choice (multiple answers)
The Multiple choice (multiple answers) type allows employees to choose multiple answers from a list of answers.
Don't worry about the order of your questions here. You can rearrange them in the next step!
To remove a question simply click the trash bin icon to the right of the question template.
Note: Once you save and launch your survey, there will be no way to change questions or response options.
3. Setting Question Order
In this step you can rearrange the order of the questions you created. Simply click the two lines to the right of the question, and drag it to where you want it to be.
