This article explains about how an admin can manually enter responses to surveys on behalf of the participants. This functionality can be used if response rate is low and you decide to do a phone campaign to ask the same questions.


  • This functionality can only be used if the survey has been configured for Internal Submission prior to the survey being sent as shown below.
  • Make sure that the survey in which you want to configure Internal Submission is of the Non-Anonymous category.

Configure Surveys for Internal Submission

To configure surveys for internal submission:

  1. Navigate to Administration > Surveys > Survey List > [select a specific survey] > PROPERTIES tab.
  2. Ensure that the survey is Non-Anonymous.
  3. Select the Allow Internal Submission checkbox.
