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 a set of questions or each question individually, such as when completing assignments or responding to an audit.
