Managing Answer Files

Updated by Emily Kirby

Back up your answer files!

Click the answer file save button every so often during a session so that your latest information is stored, and not lost if your system crashes or other problems prevent normal exit and saving.

while you can Undo (and Redo) edits in text fields, most other operations in an interview are not undoable.

If you make a big mistake in a session, like deleting critical information, the best approach is to exit without saving, so as to be able to return to the earlier answer file version.

*A great way to save time is to re-use and recycle some of your most common answers by 'Overlaying Answer Files.'
