Global Survey Submit Events

Global Submit Events may be configured for a Survey that may or may not be utilized within a DatStat Discovery configuration.

Global Survey Submit Events are used to Add Participants to a Participant List, Update Participants on a Participant List, Assign a Participant to a Derived Participant List, send an Email Alert or send a SMS Text Alert.

They occur anytime a survey is submitted.
