Custom Field Encryption in Zoho Survey - Online Help Guide

Custom Field Encryption

You can now encrypt specific questions and custom variables, and the responses will be encrypted at rest (storage). For encrypted fields, only the equal to, not equal to, answered, and not answered operators will work in the reports filter. This feature is available in our Pro plan. Read our encryption whitepaper here.

To encrypt a field in a question:

  1. Click or drag and drop a Short Answer, Long Answer, Email, Date/Time, or Number question to the builder.
  2. Type your question in the Question box. Read more to learn how to fill in the other fields for each of these questions.
  3. Click Advanced options and select Encrypt answer in the Data Privacy section. Read on how to encrypt a custom variable.
