A contact is someone you add to a survey. As your survey project progresses the status of the contact lets you know in what stage they are in. At a glance you will be able to see, for example, who has responded, which emails bounced and who has been reminded.
- Go to the survey.
- Click on Contacts in the survey dashboard.
If you don’t see this option you can also go via Distribute > Email > Contacts
Here you’ll see the full list of contacts added to the survey, and their statuses.

The explanation for “Partially responded: The contact started, but did not reach the end of the survey.” is not clear.
I have 238 partial answers however, on some questions I have 254 answers so they should be counted in partially responded right?

A respondent is a unique person that answered at least one question in your survey. Some questions are multi-select, like checkboxes. So you may only have 238 respondents, but 254 responses for a certain question.
