A response captures the investor’s data at a point in time. A client is an investor. Once a client has completed a questionnaire, this will generate a response, so a single client can have many responses over time. This article contains useful information about how to manage them.
This article will cover:

b. Pick what to send: if a client previously received some parts of an instrument, this option allows you to send the remaining parts. This is not available if the status is ‘completed’ or ‘approved’.
