We appreciate your high workload. These questions are the essential minimum we need to gain an overview of "Who, How many, When and Why?" regarding BBFE. Every question is crucial, and some may require manual extraction, however, if an answer is unavailable or manual extraction is too time consuming, please mark an X next to 'Not Available' or 'No time to manually extract'. 
Survey Monkey allows multiple returns to Questionnaire provided 'Done' is not clicked. It will also be easier to return to the questionnaire multiple times if you leave the tab open. Only press 'Done' when all questions have been answered.
