Community Remarks has a multiple surveys feature.

Let’s consider the following scenario:
You are working on a transportation system plan. You want to show projects on the map for commenting. Simultaneously, you are reviewing your existing bike/pedestrian routes. You would like to display those for public commenting. You need to utilize the multiple surveys feature.

If you show both projects and bike/ped routes all on the same map, the map will be very cluttered and confusing. You need to create two separate surveys so that when you push it out on social media, you are linking to a specific page with a distinctive purpose. Bike route issues shows existing infrastructure where the public can provide input. On another page, your TSP map directs and focuses feedback on proposed projects.

Your home page map can show only proposed transportation system plan components and related comments. You can even turn off showing comments on this page to keep the map clean.

Show projects on the map

To show projects, you need the Basic Plus license. Projects are imported from a spreadsheet into the admin. The technical support provided assists you with this task. See the projects page for examples.

Each page with a map is identified as a project. For each project page, comment topics are assigned. In the admin, you associate project pages with their corresponding comment topics.
