I know this may seem strange but I need a particular feature which I figure must me somewhere in LimeSurvey. It is simply this -- to NOT create a DB entry (in the survey table) until a survey is successfully completed.

I have the save option off but I notice even if a survey is submitted with only the most basic information (with much *REQUIRED data missing) it still creates a "incomplete" entry in LimeSurvey. Is there a way to shut-off storage of incomplete surveys? I have an external program that accesses the LS database and does stuff with new entries but partial entries are throwing it off.

I don't think that's possible.

LimeSurvey needs to create a submit ID and store the data from the start of a submission to handle things like conditions, {INSERTANS}, assessments, etc.
