Include a back button on the survey

We have a lot of information included in our survey and it would be incredibly useful for people to be able to toggle back and forth. Please update your features to include a "back" and "forward" button. Thanks. Carrie

Thanks for posting this feedback. Would you like to see a button within a survey while you are editing or a button within the survey for when your recipients take the survey?

 

Thanks!

It would be great to give our respondents the ability to go back within a survey. I have had several people complain about not being able to go back and review or change responses on previous pages. This also leads to lots of incomplete or duplicate surveys when people abandon it and start a new one to provide different responses.

Often surveyusers request the ability to go back in the survey (before submitting) A subsequent question provides new context for a previous question or causes them to think of something new concerning a past question. Please let them "go back"

I want to give users the option to go back a page but can't see how

Thanks for posting @BrendanMoore. There is not currently a way to include a back button in your survey but please continue to share features you would like to see implemented in the future.

 

Thanks!

When doing page breaks, there needs to be a way for people to go back and correct mistakes.

It would be great if the survey platform on Constant Contact had a "back" button option so participants can navigate back to a prior page if they need to edit one of their responses.

We need a "back" button for surveys !!!! 

Participant

We need a "back" button for surveys, PLEASE! I see it's been asked about for 6 years now. Any movement toward this option?

Participant

Indeed. There needs to be a "back button" or another way survey users can review their response before submitting them AND also the ability to return to a survey if they're unable to complete it in one sitting. Please explore these solutions. They are definitely needed.

Participant

How has this feature not been added yet?! Definitely needed.

I would also like to see a back feature when completing a survey. Obviously I'm not the only one! AND the question has been asked for over 6 years!!!

Regular Participant

I agree with everyone here, I definitely think a 'back' button would be incredibly useful. 

Participant

Constant Contact you provide an amazing platform and we would like to use you for all our needs.  Unfortunately, not having a back button with surveys is really an issue.  If people cannot go back, they abandon the survey and start over.  Starting over messes with our data.  PLEASE add a back button to surveys!  Curious, is a back button in in development?  If so, when might a back button be available?
