    How to 'anonymise' data collection yet enable user to receive report by email?

    Asked by fipond on November 26, 2016 at 09:02 PM

    Hi there, 

    I am using Jotform to create a Self-Assessment tool which requires individuals to self-assess against a number of capabilities. I would like this to send a summary report to the user which they can then use to inform development discussions with their manager. I have created it and happy with the functionality but am hoping you can help on one last thing:

    Their email address is required in order for the user to receive the summary report by email however, for purposes on anonymity,  I don't want to record the results with email address attached to them. So is there a way to either disable submission tracking or, better yet, collect submission data but not record/report on the Email id? 

    Your help appreciated!

    Hi Fiona,

    Did you meant you want the email data/information to be excluded in the Autoresponder email message that the respondent/user receive?

    You can just edit the message and remove the fields (i.e. email field) so that the end-user will not see it on the email message they will receive when submitting the form.

    Hope this help. Let us know if this is not what you meant.
