Participant interrupting filling out the questionnaire

Hey!

We are planning to make a quite long questionnaire (at least 1 hour to fill it out). Is it possible for participants to save their progress, interupt filling out the questionnaire, and come back to it later?

I guess this works only if each individual has a personal log in code?

Thanks!

That is possible.
There is a option "Participants may save and resume later" in the survey settings.

Participant may save and resume later?: This setting allows a participant to save his responses and resume to answer the survey at a later time. Please note that this makes most sense with open surveys or surveys with anonymized answer. If you are using tokens and the survey is not anonymous in most cases it is better to activate 'Token-based response persistence' in the token tab.


Personally I would try to get valid results from an one hour survey.
What is the topic of the survey?

Thanks for the answer!

We are doing psychological research about recovery from work effort.

I don`t quite understand why saving the progress works best with open surveys or surveys with anonymized answers. How do you save your progress and resume it later if you don´t have a password? (I guess open surveys don´t have passwords?)

Anyways we can not use complitely anonymized survey because our goal is to follow the same participants for 2 years after the baseline measurement.

Does activating "token-based response persitance" mean that the participant can not save his/her progress and resume later?

These are two options to go. You can resume via cookie with open surveys.
But in your case you choose the "Token-based response persistence" option and allow people to resume survey via their token.

Without token table or without activating " Enable token-based response persistence? "

The user have to enter a name and a password. To get back to is saved response he had to fill the name and the password.

If the participants are allowed to edit there answers later and response persistence is activated, you don't need to offer the resume button.

If they just use the token again, the survey is accessable with current answers.

I'm unaware about the condition (think it's when the session cookie is deleted) when the survey is not directly resumed but started from the first question. That may be a problem. Might be a feature request to allow resume question position with tokenbased access without using the classic save and resume dialog.

The classic resume dialog is currently a showstopper, because too many fields are mandatory. But for for longterm projects like this one it might accepted by the field.

Yes , you can show "Resume later" button, but this button have to "only" do a submit without changing page and without test if all mandatory question was answered.

Like 1.92 system.
