Frequently asked questions

My students are allowed to take the quiz multiple times. Can I still send reminders?

Automatic quiz reminders are only sent if the user has not submitted the test at any time. If the respondent submits the test at least once, a reminder is not sent - even if they are allowed multiple attempts.

Can I set a specific time for the reminder to be sent?

No, a reminder is sent at approximately the same hours/ minutes that the quiz is assigned.
