Just like Custom Fields, you are able to create a form filled with custom fields for users to fill out and submit as responses. Having this ability will help your group, club, association, institution or company to easily make assessments, collect, review and centralize all data tracking.
Generating a survey is similar to appending the fields to the events, membership requirements. The only difference is that instead of "registering" to event or applying to join a group, you are filling out a survey.
There are three areas about Surveys that will be important for you to manage and oversee:

If you are curious what we are doing in our Labs Factory: We have specific survey rubrics we have applied with our templates to enable you to use out of the box.
In the case you want to request a specific group of people in your network, your class, your program or even the individuals registered to the event, you may submit multiple requests for them to respond back to a survey template you created, you may do this there.
