Can I set a quota if I only want to collect a certain number of responses and to prevent oversampling?

Yes, you can limit the number of respondents entering your survey using the autopause function. To enable autopause:

  • Open your experiment and click on the Advanced settings tab.
  • Under the Autopause heading, check the Enable autopause box.
  • Enter your preferred number of respondents in the Desired number of responses field.
  • Click the Save Changes button on the bottom-right of your screen.
Enabling autopause allows you to limit the number of respondents entering your survey

How do I set quotas based on additional questions?

You can set quotas based on additional questions, allowing you to set quotas for specific subgroups:

  • Launch Settings by clicking the cog icon next to the attribute/s you wish to set a quota for.
  • Select Redirect (if quota is met) from the Action menu.
  • Specify the Quota size (and optionally Redirect URL).

In the example above, our survey will stop accepting male respondents, once the quota of 150 is met.
