Questionnaire submission page

The submission page of a questionnaire consists of two main sections: the navigation menu on the left hand-side and the content area in the centre and right hand-side of the page.

Navigation menu

The first tab in the navigation menu links back to the initial submission page where the basic information of the questionnaire is displayed in the content area.

The other tabs link to each section of the questionnaire, with the root sections being displayed by default. Other sections can also be displayed in the navigation menu by selecting the appropriate option when creating the questionnaire.

Status icons are displayed on the right-hand side of each tab in the navigation menu, providing information on the completeness of that particular section. The different possible statuses are:

• • • • •

New section
No answers added
Mandatory questions missing

All mandatory questions answered
All questions answered

Content area

When a respondent accesses the submission page of a questionnaire, the content area displays the basic details of the questionnaire, including title, introductory remarks and the languages of the questionnaire.

From here, respondents can change the language in which the questionnaire is displayed. When a respondent navigates to a section, the content area displays that section and all sections and questions contained within it.

On the right-hand side of each tab in the navigation menu, there is a collapse/expand icon that hides or displays that section’s contained components.

How to save responses

A respondent’s answers can be saved by clicking on the ‘Save all’ button inside each section. An auto-save feature also saves any changed responses every thirty seconds, and whenever a user moves between sections.


Submitting a Questionnaire


Respondents can submit a questionnaire if they have replied to all of the questionnaire’s mandatory questions.

Once they have submitted the questionnaire the administrators of the questionnaire will be notified of the submission. Once the questionnaire has been submitted the respondent will not be able to return to that questionnaire’s submission page, unless they request the submission to be reverted (see below).

  1. Go to the questionnaire submission page by clicking on the questionnaire title from the submission dashboard;
  2. Make sure you have answered all the mandatory questions;
  3. Click on the ‘Submit Questionnaire’ button on the top right-hand side;
  4. Confirm submission.

How to generate a PDF from the submission dashboard

  3. The PDF will be generated in a background job and the ORS will email you once it has finished generating it.
  4. You will then be able to download it from the same page by clicking on the corresponding PDF icon.
