  • Hi Michael_L,

    Survey list in SharePoint is suitable whenever you want to collect the responses from various people, access your organization about any event, any activity or any other thing, the format can be of great varieties, branching logic can be added in, and result can be exported to excel workbook, here is an article about SharePoint survey, you can refer to it for more information:

    As survey in SharePoint is a small part, the SharePoint OOTB Survey is not as rich as Survey Monkey, Survey Monkey was built specifically to do surveys and the success of the company depended on it, to choose which is suitable is depend on the specific circumstance, the following link has some comparison of SharePoint survey and Survey Monkey:

  • I have used survey monkey and whilst it is good for basic surveys and very basic reporting it does have some limitations.  There are other providers out there with more features at similar prices some of which include

    Webropol - similar pricing but much better reporting and survey features without upgrading

    Quest back

    Kwick survey

    snap survey

  • I have used SurveyMonkey but its not upto the mark. I really liked SurveyGizmo and SoGoSurvey. I have used them and helped me in market research data.

  • I've used Survey Monkey before and I think it is what we should be using to acquire the survey.

  • SharePoint is a good collaboration tool.  It integrates with all of the Windows products well.  But I don't think we should use it to perform surveys.  There are advantages to using SharePoint, but to perform surveys is not one of them.

  • Again, Survey Monkey is the way to go.

  • I don't think we need it for more than the basics.  This should the the tool that we use at this point.

  • We may use something else in the future but for now, Survey Monkey is all that we need.
