Once a survey is published you will have the option to Archive, Unpublish or Delete the survey. If you wish to stop new submissions from participants on the survey without removing it entirely from the project page, you can Archive the survey. The responses received until that point will be saved and available in the reporting. As an admin, however, you may make hard copy submissions on the archived survey as explained in this article.
If you wish to remove the survey completely from public view and stop receiving responses from participants, use the Unpublish option. This will bring the survey back to Draft status and all the responses will be available in the reporting section.
Deletion of a survey should only be done when it is not required anymore. The survey and all its responses are permanently deleted. Once deleted they will not be available anymore for reporting too.
Note: Deletion of the survey can only be done when all the responses are deleted first. To delete survey responses, you can contact us at email@example.com
If the survey has received no responses, then it can be deleted by the admin by clicking on the button 'Delete' shown below.
You can also schedule the survey to be published or archived at a later date or time. Published surveys can be schedule archived and draft surveys can be schedule published. The GIF below depicts the scheduled archival, for example.
