    This is the first icon to the left of the name of the survey.
  4. Select the Send Survey via Email
    After this, the process is exactly the same as creating an email except for the template selection process.
You will be required to select whether to deliver the email immediately or at a later date. If you choose to send at a later date, you can schedule the date on which to send the message.
