Drag and Drop Survey Sharing

Home / DatStat Illume Product Documentation / Survey Workflow / Drag and Drop Survey Sharing

It is possible to drag an entire survey out of the Illume Survey Manager and drop it into a folder or application. For example, a survey can be dragged from your My Surveys tab onto your desktop, and then attached to a Microsoft Outlook email message.  The recipient of the email can then drag the attachment back into Illume for editing.

The survey that is dragged into and out of Illume is an XML document. It’s in a format that another Illume user can edit with the Illume Survey Designer. It’s not in a format that a survey participant can fill out. Because the survey is an XML file, the types of applications into which you can drag it include email clients (such as Microsoft Outlook), text editors (such as Notepad), and browsers (such as Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox).
