On a slow mobile connection and by just opening a live survey, it went right to “build” and I accidentally deleted a question! (Luckily recovered.) How can I lock the survey version so I can’t do this again? If I can’t, could I set it to open to results or share instead?
There is a good workaround that I use for that same reason, but it only works if you have access to Account > User Management > Teams.
I have myself on 2 teams – Team 1 and Survey Lock. On Team 1, I only have limited rights to do the reporting. The project is always assigned to that team, and when I go to it it jumps right to the reporting page which is what I need.
When I need to make a change to the build, I will go to Account >User Management >Teams and add this project to the Team “Survey Lock.” On that team I have full rights. Then, I go back to the project and can make edits. Once I’m done, I just remove the project from that team. The project stays assigned to Team 1 the whole time, it can be assigned to more than 1 team at a time.
Since I’m a system admin, I can quickly go back and forth and do this. Mel from Survey Gizmo showed me this trick on a webinar and I love it since I hate that it jumps right to the Build page when you open any survey. Hope this helps.
SurveyGizmo surveys cannot be locked in the way that you are looking for – If you have a multi user account, you can set permissions for specific users, but I don’t think that is what you are looking for.
I don’t think there is a way to set a default page to open your surveys too, either.
