I have a question regarding Out of the box survey apps on SharePoint 2013.

I have been tasked with creating a new "Thank You" page for when a response to a survey is completed. Once the "Finish" button is clicked in the OOTB SharePoint 2013 Survey app the user will then be redirected to a thank you page.

I used to be able to do this in 2007 when I used a custom list for a survey by changing the "Source" of the URL.

I am just wondering, is it possible to redirect a user to a thank you page in SharePoints OOTB Survey app? If so, how would you suggest going about doing this?

Any help is much appreciated, thanks!

You can use the SharePoint Designer to achieve it.

  • Create a new page named as “Thankyou.aspx” page under the Site Pages.
  • Open the site in SharePoint Designer 2013, click Lists and Libraries, go to "Forms" section. Create a New Form by clicking on "New Item Form"
  • Give it a Name, choose form type as "New Item Form" and enable "Set as default form for the selected type" and click on "Ok" to create the new form.
  • Edit the New form we've just created. Open the "New.aspx" page with Advanced Mode in SharePoint Designer.
  • Search for the savebutton1,savebutton2, delete all two “Finish” buttons.
  • Insert SharePoint Form Action button from "Insert Menu >> SharePoint >> Form Action Button"
  • Select the Form Actions "Commit" and "Navigate to Page" .
  • Select the “Navigate to page” action, click “settings” to set the target page ,and click "OK".
  • Rename the Form Action as Finish.
  • Save and close the page.

You can also refer to the following article, although it is for SharePoint 2010, it also fits for SharePoint 2013.

  • Hi sathish, do you happen to know if this is the only way to accomplish this goal? Is it possible in any other way as I currently do not have SharePoint Designer.
