Hi guys, this is on the workarounds page. But I don't understand the last line (highlighted & bolded in red) :( . Can anyone explain that a little further please?

Allow Multiple Survey Invitations to the same Email Address to be completed in the Same Browser Session

Tested with:
Problem: When Multiple Surveys Invitations are activated during the same browser session, the second and subsequent survey activation results in a system message stating that the survey has already been completed. A user would have to close the browser and reopen in order to complete the next survey inviation.
Workaround: Edit the Survey Invitation Email (also the reminder) Template. Append "&newtest;=Y" to the {SURVEYURL} line so it looks like this {SURVEYURL}&newtest;=Y
Save the edited templates.
Note: The save of this template edit does not seem to work when using HTML invitations, only text based invitations.

Thanks!!!

There are two ways how an email can be sent, in HTML format or as plain text. Seems like you can't save this if you are working with HTML format, but only saves correctly as plain text.

Clearer?

However, thinking about it: maybe it means you have to switch off the WYSWYG editor and work in code view.

So is this right? see attachment. I'm sorry I am so clueless with this.
If I need to edit it in code I would just hit the source button right?

You can use the @@SURVEYURL@@ placeholder to get the raw survey URL (not the full link).

So, click the "Source" button and replace this:
{SURVEYURL}

With this:
<a href="@@SURVEYURL@@/newtest/Y">@@SURVEYURL@@/newtest/Y"</a>

Cheers,
