Creating a new view in Survey

A survey is a special kind of list that enables the owner to create questions, multiple people to respond to the questions, and the results to be summarized. You can use surveys to ask people what they think about issues, how to improve your processes, and many other topics. You can collect the results by using several different types of questions, such as multiple choice, fill-in fields, and even ratings.
Before you create a survey, it is a good idea to map out the questions that you want to ask and the type of answers that you want to receive. For example, do you want someone to respond with their own words, enter a dollar amount, or choose from a list? You should also decide whether questions are required or optional.
In order for people to respond to the survey, they must have permission to contribute to the survey or to the site that contains the survey. If they don’t have the necessary permissions, see the person who owns or manages your site.

Creation of view in survey is a bit different than in case of list. The create view option is not available directly in case of a survey. Below are the steps that you can follow to create a new view in case of survey.
1.           Open a SharePoint Site......Open the Survey List.
