A Survey Template is just that - a template. The survey template may be used in many projects. A survey template contains the survey instructions and questions (or statements). However, a survey template does not contain customised branding, survey participants or responses.
Projects is the place where all elements of a survey project are brought together. A project contains the survey along with the project messages, project participants, the survey responses and any analysis of the results.
When a project is launched, a copy of the entire survey, including the content, rating scales, answer lists and themes is created.
