How to Create a Custom View for SharePoint 2010 Survey

As you all know creating a custom view for SharePoint in-built survey list is not there by default. But this is a required feature in some cases. For example if you want to filter survey responses by an answer to a particular question, then having a view with that question is handy. 

So here is a workaround:

01. First of all find the survey ID. We can do that by navigating to survey settings and Find query string parameter “List” from the browser URL.

http://<server>/_layouts/survedit.aspx?List=%7B630DCEEC%2D45DD%2D4C35%2D9EBF%2D7B2C607333AE%7D

02. You won’t find ‘Create View” option in the ribbon or anywhere, but can access that page by directly accessing from the URL. So visit “Create View” page using the URL:

http://<server>/_layouts/ViewType.aspx?List=<List ID from previous step>

03. In order to create a new View, click on “All Responses” link from “Start from an existing view” section.



04. In the Create View page, provide a “View Name”, select Columns and set any other settings. Click OK.

That is it! View can be accessed from the URL: http://<server>/Lists/<survey name>/<view name>.aspx

“Detailed” is the custom view that I created and shown in the above screenshot.
