Create a timer for surveys that limits the amount of time a participant has to respond.
I have heard this idea from a couple of educators and corporate trainers. Everyone is very excited about our new survey tools, and they would like to be able to use Surveys to make timed assessments. I think this would be a serious undertaking given how surveys work currently, but it would be cool!

We need a Post-Lecture survey that will come after the lecture - that allows for feedback to the speaker but also allows registered users to be counted for attendance. Ideally I could set the Post-Lecture Survey to fire at 1:05pm Monday-Friday.
Many times speakers dont get to their last slide as they run out of time so can't make it a slide at the end. And most audience members are using the App.
Thanks for considering!

This would be an excellent addition! I would like to suggest you offer two options: 1. A fixed-time survey from when participants begin the survey (such as in an academic setting), or 2. A fixed-time from when the survey is activated (such as in a professional presentation setting. Timed survey's would be a great feature I'd look forward to seeing....
This would be a great feature. I would like to be able to set a total time limit for a survey, essentially setting up a timed online quiz that my students can complete outside of class time. They could start the survey (quiz) at any time convenient to them, but I could restrict the amount of time they have available to complete the quiz so they can't just go look up the answer to every question. Perhaps a simpler fix, although without the full functionality, would be to allow timers on survey questions as for poll questions. In that case I could time restrict each question in the survey which is a bit clunker but would serve the same purpose.
