Reports and raw data files show respondent data, therefore respondents are added to these once they are created. Respondents are created when:
- They access your survey via link and answer it - this could be fully or partially
- They are invited via email, regardless of whether they've accessed your survey or not
Therefore, in reports and raw data files, respondents that were invited via email, even if they have not participated in the survey yet, are counted as part of the total amount of respondents included in your plan.
We recommend that you use the total amount of respondents in your plan as the maximum of respondents to invite, if not you might risk ending up not seeing all the responses of those who have completed the survey.
