I have recently created a Survey on SharePoint 2010 (I do not have Designer installed). I would like to know if there is a way to have a "completed" survey populate into a new list.

For instance, the survey questions have information (when filled out) that will be similar to custom list columns that I am creating. So lets say I "add a new item" on the list, and I would like to populate information from response #15 (example).

Any insight on this would be great.

  • You need Designer( Workflows) or some pretty intense JavaScript code – Danny '365CSI' Engelman Jun 15 '16 at 20:12
  • You could make use of the "Default Values" here. Populate each column's setting to have a default value, however that would change for every user. – Mike Jun 15 '16 at 20:22

This can be done. But, it is tricky as you will need Nintex Workflow. Then you will use a combination of both Created By and a collection variable to get Survey item IDs. First thing to do is populate two collections in the same action: 1) User ID (ie. Created By) 2) IDs. Then you can tie the user who created the answers to the answers themselves through the item IDs.
