Cohort and longitudinal studies

Dear SuSo user community, can Survey Solution be used for cohort study or longitudinal study where a series of surveys are planned for given household? I mean when a first round of a survey is finished all data are transfered to the survey and when comes a second round of the survey some of the data are kept as they are (to be reloaded on the tablet of the interviewer) and others which are to be update or even newer data are stored in new columns beside data of the first round.
Can survey solution do this or is ther in alternative to collect such data with survey solutions?

Thank you for your answer,
Regards
Marc

Hello, yes survey solutions supports preloading of existing answers from the first round of interviews. It even can protect those answers from accidental deletion by interviewer.

You can review advanced preloading in this tutorial video

thank you for the quick answer I am going to see

Thank you very much, the tutorials were very useful for my problem.
