    Can we restrict number of survey responses coming from the same source?

    Asked by liz  on January 26, 2015 at 12:50 PM

    For example, ask for an email address or unique ID, or track IP source, when completing a survey, in order to ensure responders can only answer once?

    thank you David. My question wasnt about limiting the number of overall answers/submissions though, but at limiting the number of submissions by each submitter (every survey responder can only respond once)

    Yes it is possible. You can select a Unique Question, that can be email address, ID,...:

    Or you can select Unique Submission and like this there will be only one submission by location (IP address, cookies).

    Let us know if we can be of more assistance.
