Delete all incomplete SelectSurvey responses at once

Submitted by Ryan Johnson, technology training coordinator

Whenever you or a respondent clicks on link to a survey in SelectSurvey, a response is counted toward the overall responses, even if they decide not to take the survey.

You can delete each individual response when analyzing the data under the individual responses for the survey, or a quicker way is to delete them all at once. To do this follow the instructions below:

Go to the survey Options page for the survey and click the Validation tab.
