Can I track who's responded and keep the survey anonymous?

If you send your survey by Email Invitation, you can track who has or hasn't taken the survey while still keeping your survey results anonymous.

  1. Turn on Anonymous Responses in your collector.
  2. Send your survey.
  3. Open your Email Invitation.
  4. Go to the Recipients tab. You can display recipients by Responded or Not Responded. This does not show you their survey results—it just lets you see who has or hasn't taken the survey.
Please turn on Anonymous Responses before sending your survey. If you collect responses before turning it on, info from respondents who already took the survey will be in survey results. If you're using multiple collectors, you need to turn on Anonymous Responses in each collector.
When you use the Email Invitation Collector, you can change the collector settings so email addresses won't be stored in the survey results. You're still able to track who has and has not responded in the Recipients section of the collector.
