Survey: Give your survey a title, and add a series of activities. Surveys allow you to ask your participants multiple questions at once. Everyone can answer the questions privately at their own pace. Surveys are great for quizzes, pre- and post-training assessments, and questionnaires.

Tip: Surveys and groups can be edited after the creation process, so don’t fret if it’s not perfect right away.
