I work in DEV, STG & PRD and am trying to determine the best practice.  So far my work flow is as follows:

 

Create surveys in default 'My Survey Designs'.

Once complete, push to DEV.

Once pushed to DEV, copy entire folder contents and place in 'My DEV Surveys"

Back in My Survey Designs, delete .itemInfo from each survey, log into STG portal and republish.

Once pushed to STG, copy entire folder contents and place in 'My STG Surveys"

Back in My Survey Designs, delete .itemInfo from each survey, log into PRD portal and republish.

Once pushed to STG, copy entire folder contents and place in 'My PRD Surveys"

 

Depending on which environment I am publishing in, I will bring in the appropriate folder contents.

 

Does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions on this workflow?

 

When you delete the .itemInfo, not only do you loose the connection to the portal (good), but you also lose settings (bad) and I have to manually fix those.

 

I have about 50 surveys, and will have hundreds soon.  Initially this will be a pain and is a bit clunky.

 

Thanks.
