How to create an anonymous survey to SharePoint RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello.

    I’ve created a survey to SharePoint.

    And i have a sharepoint group called "My workers" and they should be able to respond to the survey anonymously.
    Do you know how this can be done? Help would be very much appreciated

  • Hi

    The Standard survey feature can easily be bypassed. Does not build the confidence in the system

    In our case, I created a separate WebApp only for Anonymous surveys and feedback sites.  I extended this WebApp to a different URL and allowed anonymous login only. 

    So all sites can be access with two different URLs. example.

    http://surveys.sharepoint.com - Claim or Windows authentication

    http://anonymous.sharepoint.com - Anonymous Only. other disable.

    The user who owns the site logs in using the http://surveys.sharepoint.com and create his questions

    Once done, he posts the link to the site using the anonymous URL on the corporate portal.

    If you want you we can even make it HTTPS so the traffic cannot be sniffed.

    Regards,

  • @Eric Boulainne would you be able to elaborate on how you did it? I am having a similar issue, I have been asked to make an anonymous survey using sharepoint but i am an inexperienced sharepoint user and could use some direction. any help would be much appreciated.

  • This technically isn't anonymous.  A survey owner may change the 'Show user names in survey results' to Yes after surveys have been submitted and see who created the response.

    Anytime you're authenticated you're being logged.
