    In order to avoid any further misunderstanding, could you please provide us your work flow and more details about your request?

    Since,If I understood your concern correctly, your intend is to divide your form three sections/pages and put a timing to each page in different time frame/zone,etc. However, I actually did not figure out the purpose of this. In other words, what do you mean by different times?

    It would be good for us to know some more details in order to help you in a better way. 

    Waiting for your return.

    Thank you for this additional feedback. 

    Now, everything is much more clear. We have global countdown widget to limit filling duration of a form. 

    You can also arrange different time interval for each page. You just need to add this widget to each page and configure its settings. 

    https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/global_countdown

    If your end user does not fill the page within the given time and if you configure setting as block form, the action will be as following image which means that form can not be submitted. 



    Hope, it would help you but if you need any further assistance by our side, please let us know. We would be pleased to help you for any issue you may have.

    Hi... need the following clarifications

     

    1. Can I add 120 questions to a single quiz 

    2.Can the questions be shuffled so that each participant gets a different order of questions

    3.What happens if someone leaves the quiz midway -- does it start from beginning or can person continue from where he left it

    Please find my answers here below. 

    1. Can I add 120 questions to a single quiz 

    There is no limitation on this. You can add fields/questions/widgets etc as much as you want. 

    2.Can the questions be shuffled so that each participant gets a different order of questions

    We have a widget for this called Shuffle. This widget provide a smart solution if you want to show your form uniquely to each of your user.

    https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/shuffle

     

    3.What happens if someone leaves the quiz midway -- does it start from beginning or can person continue from where he left it.

    If you enable Save and Continue feature, it allows your user to continue from the part where they left at previous time.

    Hi

    Shuffle widget is not shuffling the questions ( I have only edited "exclude fields by index" in it )

    I have placed Shuffle widget at the end of my form === but nothing is happening 

    Instead I have edited each question such that options within the question get interchanged ( this is possible by going into Edit Properties of each question and then into Surveying and

    then into Shuffle options ON) === this is working 

    Also, want to know if shuffling happens then will the back-end report excel dump be able to give all answers against each question 

    eg: Q1 was answered as Option A by User 1 , and it was Q3 for User 2 who answered Option B .....( and both answers are correct)
