On the "Responses" page, click on "Individual" located at the top. This action allows you to browse through each response individually.
3. Note that Timestamps are Displayed Below the Responses
In the "Individual" view, you can see the details of each response. The timestamp indicates when the response was submitted. This is displayed below the response details.
