  • Show back button on survey
    • This option controls the display of the back button on the survey. If this option is unchecked then the back button will not be shown.
      Once the participant has progressed from page one of the survey a back button is shown. The participant may go back and change there previous answers.
  • Show save button
    • When checked this option will add a save button to your survey. The save button will only be shown once the survey has been started, therefore it will not be shown on the first page of your survey since no responses would have collected until the participant proceeds to the second page of the survey.
      We recommend that if you have a long survey you split it into multiple pages, this way the participant will find it easier to answer your survey and they will also have access to the save button.

Password protect results

You can password protect your results by entering a password. This is useful when you have results you want to protect from viewing. To remove the password simply clear the password text.
This feature is used when redirect to results on survey completion is selected or you have a public results link.

Link SPAM prevention

This option prevents participants or web-bots inserting links into your survey comment boxes.

This option works by searching for links and http:// in the comment text. The threshold is the number of links detected. If you would like to block all links from being inserted into the comment text select 1.

The threshold is variable. A value of 3 would require 3 or more links inserted into a text field to set-off the protection mechanism.
