[Solved] Why disable my answer option?


I need to remove an answer from my survey now that people have answered it but don’t need to any more.  I was wondering why I would want to disable the answer option, rather than just delete it all together.


Anybody have any experience on this?  I don’t want the answer to show for people from now on, but I don’t want to mess anything with my data up.

    Disable will work going forward, you will still see any previous responses.

      • Phew! I was worried when I deleted a whole question and the data vanished. I used that restore button to bring the question back and Boom! my data was back


      You can disable options in questions:

      1. Open/edit the question you are talking about
      2. Click on the pencil next to the option
      3. Switch “Disabled” to Yes

      I am not sure what this will do to your data.
