    How to ensure that one person filles out the survey only once?

    Asked by cassidy on April 27, 2015 at 02:41 AM

    I want to send a survey or voting form but want people to be able to respond once and once only. I cant seem to work out how to limit the number of replies by people as this is what I would like to do.


    Can you please advise if this is something that can be done and how I could go about doing so?


    Thanks in advance,

    Based on what you have mentioned Cassidy, I believe that you want to make sure that one person can only submit one answer and that the same form is not working for them any longer, while others are still able to submit it.

    If that is true, then these guides would be best to follow:

    How to Limit Submissions in a Form

    How to Set Unique Submissions on a Form

    How to set Form Limits Based on a Unique Question

    Depending on how you would like to implement this, I would recommend using the second or the third link.

    If you have any questions along the way, do let us know and we would be happy to answer them.
