What’s happening to EEE Survey?
EEE Survey will eventually be retired as part of the Canvas transition. EEE Survey and any associated data (including templates and form submissions) will remain available until an alternative has been identified and notice has been made so all users have the opportunity to archive data outside EEE.
For class-based instructional use: EEE Canvas provides a survey feature within the Quiz tool.
For other uses: Stay posted and be assured we’ll give you ample warning and make sure an alternative is ready for general use before the EEE Survey tool is retired.
When will EEE Survey be retired?
No timeline is currently available for the retirement of EEE Survey. Once known, relevant timelines will be broadly announced with as much advance notice as possible.

What should I use instead?
The alternatives listed for each use case are described in further detail in the “List of alternatives” section, below. Note that, for some use cases, a direct, 1-to-1 replacement may not currently be available. Should you have a critical use case you would like to make us aware of so that it can be taken into account as the campus identifies a long-term central surveying solution, please do not hesitate to contact us.
