Is it possible for a user who is not a super admin to edit individual responses to questions (i.e. use "update entry")? I have users who I want to be able to edit responses on only certain surveys. If not, is there possibly a work-around for this? Thanks in advance.

1. Which Limesurvey version do you use?

2. To my knowledge only the person who created a survey and all superadmins can edit results for security reasons.
Have a look at docs.limesurvey.org/Survey+security+sett...tions+for+LimeSurvey for more details.

Thanks for your help.

For anyone interested (and I guess it's a pretty specific issue), my workaround is that I've exported the survey structure and then logged on as the user I want to make edits and then created a new survey by importing the survey structure (at which point the user could do edits), and then unchecked their super admin status.
