  3. Click Save.
  4. To see the login page, click Preview or Test Logic.

Login information is saved with completed questionnaires only.  If respondents do not complete and save the questionnaire, their login will not be saved.  Respondents who do not complete and save the questionnaire will need to create a login again when they come back to the survey later. Respondents will be able to resume their previous survey session with their previous answers.

Note that the Require login option is not meant to secure your survey from unauthorized use.  Instead, you can use a Password question at the beginning of your survey to prompt for a valid password before continuing with the survey.  For more information, see the Password Question.

The first time respondents encounter the login screen they must choose the New button and enter a unique username and password. After submitting answers to your questionnaire, respondents can return to edit or review their previous answers. This feature is useful in cases where you want to give individuals the opportunity to maintain their own user information.
