The last step in the Answering process is to submit answers back to your external partner.
You can submit answers all at once or individually allowing you the flexibility to submit answers according to your company's policy. Generally, companies submit questions all at once for their partner to review. However, there are many use cases where you may want to submit questions individually, such as when completing assignments or responding to an audit.

Submit All Questions
When you are finished answering all the questions in the assessment, you can easily submit all of them back to your partner. The Submit All button is available to the Questionnaire Owner or Questionnaire Admin for submitting all the answers back to your external partner for them to review. The Questionnaire Owner is the person who originally received the assessment.
Note: The Submit All button is not available to the internal users who were assigned a set of questions for answering. Instead, they can submit questions individually.
When all the questions have been answered, the Submit All button turns to a green-colored Submit Button indicating that the Assessment is ready to be submitted back to your External Partner. The Submit button also includes a count of the questions that are ready to be submitted.
1. When all the questions are answered and you are ready to submit back the entire assessment to your external partner, click on the green Submit button as shown above.
2. Click on the Submit All to Partner button to proceed. You can also enter an optional message here.
Note: A warning message will appear if you are submitting this questionnaire without all questions answered (as shown below). You are allowed to proceed if desired. However, questions that have been unanswered will be submitted to your partner and you will be unable to answer them.
