Set up a survey activity


The survey activity allows you to present a number of preset learning surveys to the learners on your course. 

The mod_survey plugin for the survey activity has now been deprecated as of Totara 13.

Before you can use the survey activity a Site Administrator will need to enable it by going to Quick-access menu > Plugins > Manage activity modules and ensuring the eye icon is open () alongside the survey activity module (this is done by clicking on the eye icon).

  1. Navigate to the course in which you'd like to create a new survey activity.
  2. Click Turn editing on.
  3. Click on Add an activity or resource and then select Survey
  4. Configure the settings, and select your preferred survey type
  5. Click Save changes or Save and display.

Once your survey is live and users have responded, you can use a range of survey response reports to better understand your users' responses.

All activities and resources are also available in the Totara Mobile app. Please note that activities and resources may work slightly differently in the Mobile app compared to on a desktop site.
