    Can respondents save answers and then loop back to reanswer the same questions?

    Asked by mlabat on January 12, 2014 at 06:05 PM

    I would like to create volunteer surveys.

    I want to have one survey with two parts - Part 1 Evaluate an individual volunteer, Part 2 Evaluate Volunteer Program.

    However, if 1 person is completing the evaluation, he or she may have worked with 3 indivual volunteers. How can I have the respondent input the name of 1 volunteer, evaluate that person, submit the answer and then go back to a fresh page to input the name and evaluation of a 2nd volunteer?

    At the end, I would ask are you finshed evaluating volunteers and then the survey would move to the 2nd part.



    loop same then and

    You should try creating the e-mail session form that will allow the respondent get back to the same form repeatedly and review and edit the form answers before finally submitting the form. You can use the page break field to have multi-part or page form.

    Thank you for this answer. Now I may have to try it to see if it works, but I'm not wanting to have them save and continue later.

    Do you think this work around will allow the respondent to save the information they've given, and then go back to the same page and not have it be auto filled with the previous information?


    I tried creating a skip logic that when i ask "Would you like to evaluate another intern?" and the response was yes it went back to the page with the likert scale, but the information that I'd submitted was still there.

    I will try the work around though.

    Unfortunately, the way how you construct the form won't work. If you set the logic to go back to the first page, it's like you are modifying the previous entries. You may consider adding the same field instead, then use our conditional logic to skip to the next page if they choose to evaluate another intern.

    Example form: http://www.jotform.co/form/40107342591851. Simply clone this form by following this guide: How to clone an existing form from a URL and check conditional logic.
