Setting a Cutoff Time and Date

You can set an expiry date and time for a survey to automatically close at a pre-set point in the future. This can help you to work to a deadline, or plan your analysis of the information you've collected.

Adding a Cutoff Time and Date

  1. Go to the Collect page of your survey.
  2. Hover under Tracking Link Name and click the Settings icon next to Preview.
  3. In the top left of the pop-up box, select Toggle Advanced Options, and then Restrictions.
  4. Check the box next to Set a Cutoff Time and Date.
  5. In the Date box, type your expiry date in the format dd/mm/yy. For example, 31/12/16.
  6. Type the cutoff time.
  7. Click Save Changes.

Your cutoff time must be entered in GMT or UTC time (+0000). You must also use 24-hour format. For example, 3pm would be entered as 15:00.
