                              Offline Participation

                              While sending email invitations or posting on social media can be the way to go for most surveys, sometimes you need to get out on the field and collect responses directly from your participants.

                              For example: You might need to collect feedback from individuals in remote areas, or record data for your scientific research where and when critical events take place.

                              Offline surveys are easy to set up, but you’ll need to keep a few points in mind while building your survey. Since the surveys are meant to work with zero internet access, any feature that uses internet will be completely unavailable.

                              If these features are part of your project, review the possible impact it might have on your participants:

                              • The offline URL can be used with any web browser, but it’s always best to use the latest browser version.
                              • All recorded responses will be saved within the browser cache. The number of responses that can be saved within the cache may vary based on your choice of browser.
                              • Upload responses as often as possible to avoid any complications with storing data within the browser.
