Can the "Completed" status of a submitted survey be changed?

5 years 3 months ago #69160 by MOWAA
We are new to LimeSurvey and using Version 1.91+ Build 11232. We are building a survey that users can start and save, then submit later when they are finished. Based on past experience, we believe some users will click the Submit button before they are finished. We have found how the Admin can make changes to a submitted survey, but cannot determine if there is a way to "reactivate" the survey so that the user can make further changes. Can this be done? If not, is there a workaround, such as exporting the answers to a new survey? Thank you for any help you can provide.

Editing submitted answers later on is only possible if you use tokens, set your survey to be non anonymous and enable the "token based answer persistance".
