I want my quizz to be timed, but I don’t to rush people to read the instruction. So I’d like to set a timer to the entire survey except for the first page. Is it possible to add a timer to a group of pages instead of the entire survey?
I don’t believe there is a way to do this. SurveyGizmo has a Page Timer option, so you can time per page or per entire survey, but not per group of pages.
One option is to treat the instructions as its own survey. So you send the instructions to your respondents and once they read the instructions, they click next and can be redirected to the second survey which is the quiz only (and used the page timer to time to whole quiz).
You could utilize the url redirect to direct from one survey to another:
My explanation is a bit over-simplified but may be something that you want to explore.
I hope this helps!
