Hi I would like to create a survey that users can keep going back too over say 6 months and towards the end of the year allow submissions to be made.

The information we are aiming to collect is data over a year period, rather than try and get this all at once (they is allot for some to input) can we have a survey open all year and participants can log in when they have more information to add?

Not sure if we have a submission button it means users can’t get back in etc and was wonder if there is a workable way around this?

Cheers,

Brendan

Can't you just use the "Participant may save and resume later?" option?

The "resume later" option could work here.

But honestly, I would go for a different approach, but this also depends a lot on what you are actually trying to set up.

I would give each of them an ID, create various surveys and send those surveys out to them when it is about time to fill the next part. I think a lot of people forget about the survey, lose the link, etc. So you'll have to sent a reminder anyway. With the ID you can later join results for analysis purposes.

This has also a psychological aspect: people like it when they managed to finish something. So it is generally better to have several short surveys over time than one big one. Another advantage is that you have already finalized results for the first surveys and could start analysis based on this and eventually adapt the following surveys accordingly.

However, as I said, if this is a solution for you depends of course very much on what you pretend to do.
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

Yes but each question is added to throughout the year rather than sections complete at different times. Do you no if it possiable to have a 'forgot password' option with the resume later tool?

Thanks for all your help,

Brendan

Such a feature doesn't exist yet.
