Idle timeout

This feature is included in all plans.

When you put your survey or quiz on an unmanned iPad in a store, you don’t want to leave the survey half open when someone quits in the middle of the survey. The Idle timeout counts the period of inactivity and returns the survey to the Intro Screen after a period of seconds you choose yourself.
