Let's say I have a Survey with 3 questions:

  1. What's your favorite color?
  2. What's your favorite candy?
  3. Please enter some comments

Now lets say, I want to hide question 3, "Please enter some comments", so that it is only visible to an administrator who comes in to respond to the survey. Essentially, I want to hide question 3 from everyone who is responding to the survey.

Is there any way to do this out of the box in SharePoint 2010?

Thanks in advance!

Out of the box? No. But it can be done with SharePoint Designer and some JavaScript code.

A survey is just a SharePoint list with a custom display. SharePoint does not have field level (question in Surveys) security.

  • Thanks. Is there a tutorial on how to do this? I haven't been able to find anything online. Dec 19, 2018 at 23:19

    Not that I've seen, but would not surprise me to find a blog article or forum solution for something related. Dec 20, 2018 at 2:39
