How to Set Survey Availability


The survey availability setting is a basic timer setting. This setting enables you to set an expiration date for your surveys.  Once the expiration date passes, the survey is no longer visible to survey takers. This feature can be used for relevant surveys for certain periods. This setting also ensures that a new timer can be set for the same survey if a survey becomes relevant again.
