Save and return to the survey at a later date

Hi all,

Apologies if this sounds really basic, but I'm sure it can be done.

If I have a survey that I want to send out to all students, (who don't all have LS Accounts), would it be possible to save their completions and return to the survey at a later date/time? I thought there was an option in settings that allowed me to set this, but I can't seem to find it.

Also if it is possible, can you do it without using tokens?

Many thanks in advance

One option is to use tokens and enable the "token based answer persistence", see docs.limesurvey.org/Creating+a+new+surve...or+LimeSurvey#Tokens

Another alternative is to use the "save and return later" feature: #7 at docs.limesurvey.org/Creating+a+new+surve..._amp_data_management

Thanks for this. I knew I'd seen this somewhere - it was the second option I was after :)

Hello,

the option you are looking for is in the "Generall settings" of the survey -> "Notification & Data management" tab -> "Participant may save and resume later?". This will add a button to the survey that let participants save their results and resume later. It is not necessary to use token though you have to leave a name and password to resume the survey at the point you left.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen/Best regards,
