How does anonymity work?
We anonymized the system variables: first name, last name, and email which make it impossible for survey administrators to connect survey responses to individuals. Furthermore, you won't be able to see individual answers under responses.
Pro tip: Add a text element at the beginning of your survey to let your respondents know that their answers are anonymous.
IMPORTANT: to ensure your respondents' anonymity, once you start collecting responses your survey's degree of anonymity can't be changed.
Anonymity and reminders
Believe it or not, anonymous surveys are compatible with reminders. As long as you've invited your respondents via email, you're able to send them reminders if they have not participated in your survey yet.
Since the survey is anonymous, you will not be able to see your respondents' background information and will not be able to tie survey responses to email addresses or names.
