You can test a survey at any point while you are creating it, by clicking the Preview survey button located on the survey toolbar:

This allows you to check the survey looks and feels before initializing it. When testing/previewing your survey, your responses will not be stored in the response table.

Hint: Use this functionality to test surveys that use conditions and/or expressions to see if all works as expected! If something is wrong, you should use the logic file option to quickly find out where the error is.


Testing a survey thoroughly prevents a lot of problems at a later time!
