🌐 What is IP address location ?

The IP address location feature will try to look up the location of a respondent based on its IP address. It can be activated or disabled at any time from the survey properties page.

IP location look up will be done only once a respondent has submitted his answers and is not done in "real time" to avoid any delays during response submission.

IP location will also look up location information for any respondent recorded in your survey prior of activating the IP location lookup property.

Following location attribute can be extracted from the IP.
