         Are survey responses saved partway through the survey?
    • You cannot save your survey responses and return to complete the survey. Responses are submitted when you select the blue submit button, but if you exit the survey without clicking this button, you will have to start over.

      What if I submitted my survey or my browser crashed before my survey was completed?
    • If the “Thank you” screen did not appear, you should retake the survey

      What devices can surveys be taken on?
    • Panorama surveys can be taken on any device with an internet browser, including laptops, Chromebooks, tablets, iPads, and smartphones.
