When checking interviews at the supervisor and HQ level often there are issues in interview files that need further clarification from the interviewer before the issue can be addressed or confirmed.
It would be useful if one could reject interview files in a mode that allows interviewers to read comments and respond, but does not allow them to change/delete answer.
With that functionality one could easily communicate with field workers about issues in an interview file and have a record thereof, while at the same time removing the possibility of an issue being “patched up” while the interview is being rejected. This would be particular useful if one does not trust field workers to take the right action to address the issue. It would allow for a wider range of data quality set-ups, e.g. a systems in which HQ follows up with field workers on issues but organizes the cleaning centrally.
