Summary14908: The Button "exit and clear survey entrys" on the last page (endmessage)
DescriptionIf a patricipiant fill out the survey and submit the answers, he comes to the last page, the end message. In the right upper corner exist the button "exit and clear survey". If the user push the button, the message appears "answers cleared", restart the survey.
In reality the response is not cleared in the database. The response is only cleared in online-formular. If you restart the survey this is a new answer, with a new entry in the database.

Steps To ReproduceThe survey language is English. The survey is not public listed. There is no cookie set, to prevent double answers, The template is "Bootswatch" . The participiants need no key, only the url of the survey.
Additional InformationI'm not sure, wether it is a bug or a feature, because in the case of the survey, the option "Set cookie and allow only one answer" is set to FALSE.
But if it is a feature, the wording leads to missinterpretation.
TagsNo tags attached.

I think, the standard should be, that after "submit" the button "exit and clear survey" should not appear.

@DenisChenu, do you know anything about the correct behaviour? I personally do not see the purpose of "exit and clear survey" after submitting a form. If the wording is wrong, then we should have: restart survey.

The intended behaviour is that the button should not be shown on the first and last page of the survey.
