Allowing Sub-Users to Share Surveys

By default, all sharing of survey permissions between users on a multi-user account must be done by the Master User.

However, Master Users can activate a feature which will allow sub-users to share their own surveys (That is, surveys where they are the survey owner, and not those shared with them) with other users on the account.

To activate Permission Sharing for Sub-users, navigate to the “User Management” section of your account by choosing it from the “Account” drop-down in the top nav bar.

On the user management page, in the upper-right of the table that lists the users on the account, there’s a grey button, next to the search box. Click this button.
