 I have a question WRT setting up a survey on SharePoint 2007.

 When creating a survey, I'd like to configure it so that a user **cannot** modify his/her response (after response has been submitted).

 At this time, it appears that users can modify their own responses via "Edit Response".    If available in SharePoint 2007, how can I either hide or disable the "Edit Response" function?

 Thanks,
 EEH

You can edit the permissions for survey takers so that they can have...

Read access = only their own
Edit Access = none

another thing you can do, is redirect the user to another page after submissions. Most users won't know how to get back to the reponse section, particularly if it is hidden from the QuickList.

Try adding a & after the submit link, and redirect them to another page, like a thank you for your submission page. That, along with adjusted permissions, will give you a better experience, based on your requirements.

&source="url of the page you need to redirect to"

Thats it!

Thank you for your comments.   With respect to your comments, please see the following:

1. I've changed the permissions as you suggested (see attached JPG).   Unfortunately, I still can modify my own response (which is kinda odd).    Any ideas as to why the settings/permissions don't work?

2. Based on your 2nd comments, I clicked on the URL.   Once I clicked on Site Actions, I was able to find those particular permissions.   Are they different from those listed as part of comment #1?

3. Where (as part of the properties/settings) can I specify the URL once they clicked on "Submit".   This may be the most feasible option.

Again, thanks for chiming in here... ;)

I'll get back to number 1 and two. I don't use 2007 anymore so I can't show you directly but I may be able to show you 2010 or 13. As for third option. Create a link list somewhere and make the title Respond to survey, for example. Now in the url, paste the link to your survey submission, the URL you get when you are responding to a survey. Now before saving it, append the &source at the end of that link and save it. The URL after source can be any valid URL. Try cnn.com, for example. :)
