Survey Schedule

Each Flash Survey has an automatically generated timeline that is determined based on the course's length, start date, and end date. Below, you can find a guideline explaining the rules behind the date generation, or expand the collapsed table to find your course's specific timeline.

  • Faculty can create their custom questions during the "Customize Survey Start" and "Customize Survey End"
  • Students can fill out their survey during the "Survey Releases" and "Survey Closes" dates [1]
