Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
We are committed to continually improving SAS DataFly and plan to launch new features based on your feedback. In the meantime, here are answers to some common questions and requests. If you have any other questions, issues or feedback about features you’d like to see, please contact us at
How can I edit my answers after I've submitted?
Currently, students are unable to edit their responses. In the future, teachers will be able to edit student responses if necessary.
How can I answer more than once?
There is an option when creating the lobby 'Allow multiple entries from a single device' that will allow students to answer the same survey multiple times.
Can I get statistics like line of best fit, mean, median, etc.?
Yes! These statistics are available in the toolbar indicated by 3 dots in the upper right corner of the live session chart display.
What happens to the student data after it's collected?
After a lobby is closed, all data associated with that lobby will be deleted after 20 minutes. To save student data yourself you can export the data as a .csv using the Download Data link on the host screen.
Can I save my templates or student responses to an account?
We are currently reviewing the value of this feature. One of our top priorities is ensuring student data privacy which is why we currently store no student data after a session ends. We plan to continue to evaluate the possibility of this feature based on user feedback.
What happens if I share a saved template?
When sharing a saved template, another user can launch their own live session using the template you have created. They cannot edit the template you have created and they cannot access any data that you have collected. They can use the shared template as a starting point to make edits on a new template but these changes will not impact the original.
I lost my shared template link! How can I get it back?
Unfortunately, there is no way to retrieve a specific shared template link. We recommend emailing links to yourself or keeping them in a specific location so that you can always find them.
