Summary07135: URL is rewriting
DescriptionThe survey sid is dropping from the URL after the welcome screen.

This action creates an issue for those who want to complete the survey later and want to bookmark where they are at in the survey.
Steps To ReproduceOn a survey that has "save for later" and the welcome screen enabled, start a survey. At the welcome screen the URL has the sid and the actual number. Once you click next the URL shows only the index.

That's the intended behaviour. A bookmark won't help because the underlying session data would be lost anyway.

Interesting that I can create a URL with the token ID and return to the survey where I "saved for later" in a different browser from the one that the original survey was taken.

Yes, you need a token for that. But for security reason we don't show the token in the URL all the time. Please do not re-open. Thank you.
