The number of surveys you receive may vary significantly based on the information you have registered. The more complete and updated your profile is, the more likely you will receive surveys.

Each survey has a fixed quota. When a survey reaches the maximum number of respondents, the status will change to "Closed", and you will no longer be able to participate. Please note that a survey may close earlier than the date displayed in the email.

If JavaScript is set to "Disable", please change it to "Enable".

Click the "Refresh" button in the browser, and check whether the status has changed to "Answered".
For some surveys, the status will remain at "Answer" during the survey period which is written in the invitation e-mail. In this case, the status will change to "Closed" after the survey period has ended.
