I am also looking for a similar function. Our company is producing a survey to go out in an email blast as well as mail. We don't want to allow for duplicate surveys, however we must keep the survey results anonymous. Is there a way to track which email recipients completed the online survey while keeping their results anonymous?

Hi there -- You can keep the survey results anonymous by posting your survey link on a website. This keeps the link public as opposed to pulling in your contact's email address upon sending that link through a mailing.

You won't be able to see *who* has completed the survey, since their address will be anonymous as well. However, anyone who has taken the survey would have to either clear their browser's cache & cookies or access the link from a different browser in order to bypass the "thank you" page. So, it's unlikely that your contacts will take the survey more than once.

I hope this helps!
