I am using Sharepoint 2010. In Sharepoint 2007 I was able to click the 'add new item' icon which brought up the list in a questionnaire format - i could then use this link to send out and individuals could complete the list. In Sharepoint 2010, I can't seem to do the same thing. When I click on 'add new item' the URL for the 'questionnaire' view is the same as the URL for the standard view and I do not want individuals to see this part of the list.

The structure is same as SP2007, it's not directly shown though, you can find it like this -


You can send out this link, but after completing the question when user press finish page will be redirected to AllItems.aspx, you have to think a way of avoiding that, either hide the view in that page and using the link like http:// yoursite/Lists/listname/NewForm.aspx?RootFolder='view/link of the same site where you want to redirect user'

This question has been asked previously on this forum, here

I guess this is what you want right ?

It's something like http://sp2010/Lists/TestSurvey/NewForm.aspx

To find it go to your survey click "respond to the survey", when the dialog opens rightclick and select properties, copy the address except ?IsDlg=1

Redirect to another page on completion: In both 2007 and 2010 you can add “?Source=” and specify a page to go to after the survey has been completed. The destination (Source) could be the survey home page, the site’s home page or a custom “Thank you” page.

Here are the complete details

Hi, Yes this is what I am looking for. But when I open my list, click add new item and right click, as instructed is: vtbenet/hrmentoring/Lists/Mentor%20Questionnaire/AllItems.aspx which doesnt include ?IsDlg=1 – cindy Oct 18 '12 at 13:19
Is there a work around at all? appreciate your help – cindy Oct 18 '12 at 13:20
p.s I am using a list not a survey unsure if this is the reason why I am not getting the ?IsDlg=1 – cindy Oct 18 '12 at 13:28
Cindy, I cannot view your SharePoint environment until its on Public Facing license... is it? Also, why are you not using Surveys if its just Question with multiple choices to select from? – Arsalan Adam Khatri Oct 18 '12 at 13:59
