Self-interview feature

So why do we need this? Isn’t the whole point of user interview is to note down observations and feedback in-person? Yes. I whole-heartedly agree. However, I also think something is better than nothing and while I can still continue interviewing a limited set of users in-person, I can gather a lot more feedback by reaching out to people I wouldn’t have had time to otherwise and let them self-interview! 

I had to figure out how to manage anonymous users for this since I can’t expect every stakeholder to come sign up before answering questions. It was a bit tricky with permissioning etc but I was able to work through the usecases yesterday. Looking forward to seeing how it does in the real world.
