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.
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.
