Why does a survey scheduled for and sent today 10/17/2016 have a 05/09/2016 date at the top when people go to take the survey?
Without being able to see your survey, my first guess would be that somebody typed that date into a page title or page description. The appearance of a date on a survey is not standard in SurveyGizmo – it has to be deliberately added.
If you actually want the current date to appear, you can use a merge code [System: Current Date EST].
If you can’t find where the date is located within your survey, you should contact SurveyGizmo Support (https://community.surveygizmo.com/email-a-support-hero/) – they will be able to access your survey and find the problem.
