How can I implement an Employee Of The Month survey?

I know how to add a question that will allow one user to select from the All Users List, but how exactly can I make this survey reset itself at the end of the month?

I am also interestead in implementing a custom timing for this survey, let's say 5 weeks, and not exactly one month.

Create your survey and save it as a template when you've gotten it how you want it. Once the survey has run it's course, set the permissions to read only, determine your winner, delete the survey, then create a new one based on the template with the same name. URLs will continue to work that were previously distributed and it makes relaunching the survey much easier.

Thanks for your response! – BogdanM Sep 20 '11 at 7:31
But, how can I make this behaviour automatically? I mean, is there any way I can make this survey close itself, send the results at the end of my predefined period of time, and then relaunch itself? – BogdanM Sep 20 '11 at 7:32
You'd probably need a timer job or some sort of scriptd powershell commandlet to fully automate it like that. – Eric Alexander Sep 20 '11 at 12:01
Thanks, this seems to be the answer. – BogdanM Sep 20 '11 at 12:45
