Hello everybody,

I'm creating a survey for an association and I'd like to preview a survey with someone without giving them access to the admin area.

I know I can set user permissions which only allow view/read - but if the user has access to the admin interface they will be confused. In addition, they cannot preview the survey with these permissions.

I only want the user to preview the survey.

Thanks in advance,

-Graham-

See manual.limesurvey.org/Global_settings#Security

You can work around this by activating the survey for tests, then deactivate it again.

Thanks - do you have a link to the manual (I didn't yet find anything on this) ?

What is the advantage of this over the security change suggested by DenisChenu ?

Thanks again.

I have no link, but it is just activating the survey and once the testing is done deactivate it again and make changes if necessary. There might be a manual page on how to activate / deactivate the survey, but you need to search for that yourself in the manual. But it is very basic, don't see the need for reading in the manual.

Advantage: Easy and simple, don't need to give access to the backend at all.
Disadvantage: While the survey is active you can't make all changes. E.g. adding questions / subquestions / answer options is not possible (basically everything that would need a change to the database structure). Basic wording changes are possible though.
