Stop a survey
Description: Describes how to configure a survey to stop accepting responses after a specific date.
When you create a survey you can configure the date when the survey is stopped. A stopped survey is different from a paused survey. Once a survey's expiry date has occurred, the survey is stopped until you change its expiry date. You cannot restart a stopped survey using Pause.
IMPORTANT: If you want to stop a survey without setting a specific expiry date, you can Pause the survey at any time. A paused survey is suspended and no new responses are accepted until the survey is restarted. Users trying to take the survey while it is paused will receive a message saying the survey is closed.
To stop a survey using a expiry date:
- In the Surveys tab, click the name of the survey for which you want to configure a stop or expiry date.
- Click the Security tab.
- Click Change under Response limit settings.
- Select Specify a last date to accept responses, and click Next.
- In Last response date, click the calendar icon () and select an expiry date for the survey. Click Next.
To restart a survey after its expiry date has occurred, you must change or delete the expiry date.
