To create a web forms survey that allows anonymous submissions, add an .htaccess file with the following contents to the subdirectory that contains the survey:
By placing this file in the subdirectory, the contents of the subdirectory are not protected by WebAuth (and therefore anonymous).
You can share administration of your form by giving others access to the directory in AFS where the form is located. When someone has administrative (admin) permissions, he is allowed to see, change, and move files. You can assign administrative permissions for the AFS directory that holds your form, but not to a single form.
To use the forms service with a vanity URL, find the path that your vanity URL points to and enter that path in the Making the Form Live section of Form Builder. Remember, the path must start with http://www.stanford.edu.
You can download form data in Excel or CSV format.
To download your data:
Use inline frames.
Here's sample code:
<iframe src ="http://www.stanford.edu/dept/foo/myform.fb" width="100%" height="300"></iframe>
First, make sure they are admins in the AFS space that corresponds to the URL for your form. Remember, administrative permission (permission to see, change, and move files) is granted for the entire directory. For security purposes, you might want to store all of your forms in a single directory and give admin permissions for that directory only.
The Qualtrics survey tool is an easy-to-use, full-featured, web-based tool for creating and conducting online surveys. The survey tool is available at stanforduniversity.qualtrics.com.
You protect a form using WebAuth just as you'd protect a regular file; by creating an .htaccess file.
Here's an example .htaccess file that protects just one form called 'myform.fb' and allows only Stanford users to see it:
require privgroup stanford:stanford
Anyone with a full service SUNetID should be able to use the Web Forms Service to create forms.
When you publish a form at a particular URL, even though the Web Forms Service doesn't actually create a file in the corresponding AFS directory, it still checks the permissions in that directory to see if you are allowed to publish files there. That's to prevent unauthorized publishing in your web space.
If you know a form has been published at a URL which corresponds to an AFS directory for which you are an admin, you can use the Form Builder interface to add that form to the list of forms you manage.
