Creating a menu item

There are several menu types available for BF Survey Plus.

Default – multi page survey

This survey type offers the most flexibility, as you can have a different number of questions on each page of the survey, which is achieved by grouping questions using the parent item.

The default multi page survey temporarily stores the responses in session variables, and waits till the very end (when the thank you message is displayed) to save the responses into the database. By default the session lifetime set in your global configuration is 15 minutes, so be aware that if you have a long survey which takes more than 15 mins to complete then you may need to increase the session lifetime on your site or perhaps use the save as you go (SAYG) view instead. It is possible to increase the session lifetime for BF Survey Plus only instead of changing the global setting, however it requires a minor code change, if you are interested in this please refer to our support forum.
