    • Web page to go to a specified web page.

Resuming a saved response

If the participant has accessed the survey using a login then the data response is saved with their login details so that it is reloaded when they resume the questionnaire.

If the participant has not used a login they are sent to the default web page containing a link that they can use to resume the questionnaire. They can either enter their email address to be sent the link or bookmark the page.

If you want to collect saved data that was never completed you will also need to select partial responses.

Using variables to specify the web page

When respondents answer an online survey, you can specify the web page that they are taken to when they finish.

Survey variables can be included in the web page address making this specific to answers a respondent has given in the questionnaire.

You can:

  • insert the response to a question as part of a website address
  • use derived variables which identify a website address, dependent on given answers
  • pass the content of variables to a web page, for example, to insert a respondent’s name into a “Thank you” message

Using a question answer

The data that is inserted in place of the question name depends on the type of question:

Response type

Information used

Quantity, Date, Time or Literal response

The literal answer entered

Single-response

The selected code label

Multiple responses

The response code labels are joined into a comma separated list

The entry for the web page address shows the question name enclosed in curly brackets.
