In the documentation it is stated:
"If you are using tokens and the survey is not anonymous in most cases it is better to activate 'Token-based response persistence' in the token tab."

We have done exactly that - The survey is not anonymous, Token-based response persistence is set to Yes, as well as Allow editing of answers after completion.

The last page the person has seen is loaded, however answers are NOT recorded if the survey is Not submitted.

What is the default behaviour for those options? Our understanding is that 'Token-based response persistence' results in ANY CLICK ON ANY PAGE BEING RECORDED IMMEDIATELY, but it is NOT so.

We have working installations of 1.92+ (Main) and 2.0 (testing) and on both the 'problem' appears.

A clarification would be helpful.

Best,
Yavor

This perception is wrong.

Responses are only saved, once a page is submitted. If you have all questions on one page, responses can only be saved once the survey is submitted.

If you go group by group, a group is only saved when you proceed to the next group.

In question by question mode, questions are saved when you move to the next page/question.
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

Thank you for the answer, it resolves our question.

As a follow up - would you think it valuable for LimeSurvey if we try to develop token based functionality that records every click of a user on a survey? Perhaps, using asynchronous Ajax with jQuery.

Best regards,
Yavor

I think this would be a good question for the developers list. I am not sure what implications this might have on the database connection, etc.
