Online surveys  (formerly BOS)

Powerful, flexible online surveys

How can I control who completes my survey?

You can use Survey access control to restrict participation in your survey by:

  1. Setting up a survey password: only people who have the password can complete the survey. This basic protection does not prevent respondents from making multiple entries.
  2. Setting up a respondent list with unique credentials for each respondent.  Respondents then access the survey either by entering a username and password, or by following a customised link.  Each set of credentials can only be used once.  You can store these credentials to monitor or track respondents, or discard them to keep your survey responses anonymous.
