Survey Responses

You can download a copy of a user's survey response via the Edit Responses window, making the data quickly and easily accessible to administrators.

Additionally, being able to delete a survey response enables administrators to test the survey's functionality and validity before distributing it to a wider audience, avoiding any potential issues with the survey, and preventing test responses from being incorporated in survey summary reports.


You can access this feature from your MSL website. Only Content Editors with access to Survey Admin and Organisation Admins with permissions to edit surveys can access the Edit Responses window.
Only Content Editors with access to Survey Admin and with permission to edit surveys at the MSL Membership System root Organisation (Group ID: 0) can delete a survey response.

For further information, see Survey Admin.
