What Are Partial and Complete Responses


When you have collected your survey data and you start reporting, you will see there are two types of responses: partial responses and complete responses.
  • Partial responses are from respondents that have started the survey and possibly answered a couple of questions, but dropped off before the end of the survey.
  • Complete responses are from respondents that have filled in the survey entirely, from the first question till the last.

  • On the top of the page that comes up you will see a dropdown called Export; click on it to see the following options:





  • You can use any one of those file types to see partial and complete responses, but for this example we will use an Excel file.
  • Click on the file type you would like, and after the file has finished downloading open the file.
    Note: for surveys with a lot of responses the downloading might take a while.





  • In the second column, called Status, you will see it says either Started or Completed; Started equals a partial response, and Completed equals a completed response.
