In August 2023, we will be implementing a change to how surveys, materials, pages and projects are presented in Maptionnaire. 

Previously, surveys were shown as cards, as in the image below:


In practice this made it quite difficult to navigate between surveys.

This is why from now on, you will see surveys in your team as a list:


We have not removed any functionalities, but just made finding everything a little bit easier. The same change applies to other sections: Materials, Projects (incl. Ideas and Proposals), and Pages (Webpage Builder). 


Questionnaires are now in the order in which they were created, newest first. If you re-publish a survey, it won't 'jump' to the top of the list. You can sort the list by creation date to show oldest surveys first.

The Internal name of the survey can be set in Survey settings > General. 

The Questionnaire title is taken from Survey settings > Card.

The Internal description comes from Survey settings > General. 

Image is the one you've chosen in Survey settings > Card. 

Created is the date when the survey was first created.



To go to the editor, click the button with a pencil icon under Edit

To view the analysis tool, click the chart symbol under Analyze

To download results data/hide test responses, click the download symbol under Results

To view the published survey and copy its link, click the button under View

To transfer, copy, archive or delete a survey: tick the checkbox next to the survey's name, and choose the appropriate action by clicking Actions (see image below):


How to categorize and search for surveys


You can search for surveys by their internal name and description. Search by choosing whether you want to search by name or description, and then typing a search term in the box that says 'Search' (see arrow in picture above). 

Another way to organize your surveys is by using color codes, e.g. the pink color above. The color can be set in Survey settings > Card.

How to find out how many people visited or responded to your survey


Click the arrow symbol on the left-hand side of the survey's internal name, and you will see its internal and 'official' title and description. You will also be able to see how many people visited your survey (everyone who responded + everyone who just viewed the survey without interacting with the questions), and how many actually left answers. Respondents includes both the submitted and unsubmitted responses.



Materials follows a similar logic as Questionnaires. 

Name = the name of the file, which you can alter in Edit

Type = whether the asset in question is an image, map file, document, or audio clip

Edit (pencil symbol) = go to the editing window

Preview (only for images) = shows you what the image looks like

Created = the time when the survey was first uploaded to Maptionnaire


You can filter materials by type (e.g. image, type of map...) and search for them using search terms.

To copy, transfer, archive or delete a file, tick the checkbox on the left of its name and click the Actions button.



Internal name and description can be set in Page settings. Page title, description and image come from the Card settings.

To edit, preview, or view a page, click the buttons under Edit, Preview or View

Tags are the tags you have set in the page settings. You can also search for pages by tag:


Language is the language of the page that you have set in page settings. Translation group is a code shared by the pages that are different language versions of the same content and have been linked together under Languages.


To Archive, Restore (if archived), Delete, Transfer, Copy or Bulk edit pages, tick the checkboxes next to the pages in question and click the Actions button.
