Hi all,

I can't see a way to avoid survey editing once is sent to contacts or once is submitted.

 

It seems dangerous, because answers can be lost if the referred questions or options are deleted.

 

Regards

Solution

@miccomicc I agree, there could be big problems but there is no way to lock it down. So I think it comes down to governance & communication: all those with the lShare to Collaborate link who might change the form/survey must be made aware of a cut-off date/time after which it will be issued and no further changes will be permitted. That's about as close as you can get.

@RobElliott Thank you,

That's kind of an issue. Hope there will be a "draft" status in the future or a versioning strategy for surveys.

 

Bye!
