With Quota Control, you can control how many respondents do you want for each option in your survey. For example, if you would like to have an equal distribution of males and females in your survey, and you are sending out your survey to 100 people: Quota Control allows you to put a limit on the number of people responding to each option and optionally terminating the survey based on the criteria.
