If the project does not use sample management you can omit this parameter and a default setting of zero will be used instead. If you omit the signal and the project uses sample management, a signal of 1 (completed interview) or 2 (stopped interview) will be passed depending on the value of Status.
True (the default) or False depending on whether or not you want to write out any unwritten data for this interview. Currently only True is supported.
