Using Folders to Organize Surveys

Folders help you organize and filter surveys on the My Surveys page. You can create your own folders, or use the folders automatically created when someone shares surveys with you.

The All surveys folder is your default folder. To view surveys in other folders, click the folder dropdown to switch.

Common Questions

Can I change the default folder view?

There's no way to change the default view on the My Surveys page to show a custom folder instead of All surveys. Click the arrow on the All surveys dropdown to view your other folders.

Can I password-protect a folder to restrict access?

No, you can't password-protect a folder. Each SurveyMonkey account is meant for one person. Everyone you're working with should have their own account with their own username and password.

We have some great ways you can work with other people on surveys, no matter what kind of account you have.
