Creating a new quota

Quotas are defined as part of the question properties. When editing a question, switch advanced view to ON, and enter the required quota to each choice in the quota boxes provided. (it's the last box of each Choice)

Once you have entered your quotas, click save to store them.

Changing quotas when the survey is live

You can change the quota target while the survey is live. However, you must do this from the quotas screen (when the project is open, click quotas at the top right, as shown below):

Any quotas you have already defined are displayed. Click + to view the details of a quota. The quota amount (target) for each answer choice is displayed, which you can edit. 

Note: next to the quota amount, this screen also shows the number of respondents who fulfill the quota.

Whenever the respondent opens the app, and he or she is online, the survey quota check will update according to the new targets you have set for that survey.

Performing Quota checks

It is possible to set up scripting to perform quota checks. For details, please see performing quota checks.
