It looks to me like there's no current way to assign only data entry rights to a user. My concern is giving someone permission to work with a live survey and running the risk of their changing some configuration item and messing up the survey so we lose the existing data.

I did find a suggestion for this, so I assume there's no feature yet in place. Can someone confirm this and offer any suggestion on how to achieve my objective of allowing someone to enter data off manual forms and not much else?

Many thanks!

Doesn't the "bowse response" right do that?

Yes, but it also allows anyone doing data entry to browse the responses. The survey administrator can see responses, but we prefer that the responses remain unknown generally until the survey is completed (expires). Perhaps it's a bit of paranoia about security, but our organization is known for its gossip--but I don't think we're the only ones suffering from talk behind the scenes! :)

Thanks again for your response.
