Quota Activity Settings

This article will detail the Quota Activity Settings options


The 'Quota Activity Settings' are used to help control quotas. It will allow you to count respondents that are both completes and in-process within the time frame indicated when checking quotas. These are the things to keep in mind when considering to update these settings:

  • The default is 5 mins
  • The maximum you can increase this number to is 60 minutes
  • The higher you make this number, the more people will be counted towards being considered filled. This allows you to decrease the possibility of over quotas
  • The lower you make this number, the more people you will be allowing to get by a quota check. 
  • You can turn this off all together as well
