If I de-activate my survey, when respondents click on the link to my survey they get taken to the survey and the message at the bottom of the screen informs them that the survey is not currently active and they won't be able to save their responses.

Is there a way to stop them even seeing this page?

This is not a token based survey.

Cheers

Paul

Hello Paul,

I think you have activated "Survey preview only for administration users" in "General settings"/"Security".

Can you have a look :)

Hi

The setting was set to 'No' so I changed it to Yes and now there is an Error page saying
'We are sorry but you don't have permission to do this'

Is that correct? If so, it would be much nicer to be able to change this message to something a little more friendly!

Yep,

It's correct ,

To change the text, you can use survey translation files (po and mo).
