Restrict the number of responses that a user can submit for your survey.
You don’t want a user to keep on submitting random responses to a survey, right? Keep a cap on the number of responses a user can submit. Let’s see how to enable the “Limit submissions per user” functionality for your survey.
1 . Log in to your SurveySparrow account and navigate to the Build part of a survey.
2. Go to the Config section.
3. Under Configurations, enable the “Limit submissions per user” toggle.
Here, you can choose to set a fixed number of submissions that a respondent can submit once forever or reset the limits at the end of each recurring period.
If you intend to have the survey submission per user fixed for the survey’s lifetime, enter the number of submissions and select the “Never” option under “Limit Resets”.
For example, if the submissions per user are limited to 5, the user can submit up to 5 responses for the entirety of the survey’s active period.
On the other hand, if you intend the replenish the submission limit after a time period, enter the number of submissions and select the “Every” option. Enter the duration after which you want the submission limit to refill. The refilling cycle can be in days, weeks, months, or years.
For example, if the submissions per user are limited to once every two weeks, the user can submit a maximum of one response every two weeks.
4. Click the “Save” button to confirm the configuration.
You have successfully configured “Limit submissions per user” for your survey! Well, that’s how simple it is to have a ceiling on the number of responses a user can submit.
- The reset limit is not applicable for Offline surveys.
- If “Limit submissions per user” is enabled both at the survey level and for the QR-code share level, the survey-level settings will be given precedence.
