Is it possible to prevent a person from responding multiple times to a public survey in survey123?

I would like to create a survey in survey123 which allows individuals to rate an application.  The individual with the highest score would be the winner.  Since it is a competition I don’t want the same people rating the same application multiple times.

Hi Lauren,

No, it is not currently possible to to stop users taking a public survey multiple times. This is a feature we are looking into and is in backlog however there is no timeline yet for implementation.

As a workaround you could add a question at the start of your survey to ask if they have taken this survey previously, and if they answer yes then hide all the other questions. This is not ideal as they could still answer no and trick the survey.
