Generating a Survey Web Link
A survey link is the easiest way to distribute your survey to collect responses. Post the link on social media such as Facebook, include the link inside of your own email campaigns, generate a QR code to print it on paper receipts and flyers, or even place the link on your website to capture user feedback.
By default, only one response can be recorded per device. If you wish to allow multiple responses from the same device you can enable multiple responses per device option.
Respondent Meta Data
The only piece of information that a web link would capture by default is the IP address and browser agent of the respondent. To capture additional information from a web link, you would either need to ask respondents certain demographics questions inside of the actual survey, or you can place custom variables inside of a web link using a transactional survey link.
Secure Your Survey
By default, your web links will be publicly accessible to anyone. For example even if you posted the link to your Facebook friends only, those friends can share the link and give access to unwanted respondents. If the link is posted on a website or crawled by a search engine, then the survey itself might show up in various search results or in other places on the web.
If you want to ensure privacy, protect access to your survey with a password. This will ensure only people with the password can see the content. Search engines would not be able to crawl or index your survey.
Why to Generate Multiple Links Per Survey
If you wish to create a new survey link for your survey, you can do so at any time by clicking the "New Survey Link" button. This will create a new URL for you to share. You can give this link a name for internal use such as "Class 2". You could then segment your results by this link.
Using multiple links is a great way to track respondents and segment results. For example, a teacher could create 3 different survey links for the same survey. He or she would then give one link per class to rate the previous class session/topics covered.
Survey Web Link Options
|Anonymous Responses||Surveys will be labeled as anonymous to give respondents confidence that their answers cannot be tracked. For embedded surveys, this means hiding the IP address of the respondent.|
|Response Editing||With this option, if a respondent clicks a survey they have already taken, they can edit their responses and re-submit a new, updated form.|
|Redirect URL||You can enter in a URL for the respondent to be redirected to after they complete their survey.|
|Show Results After Completion||A respondent will be redirected to the survey results page after completion. This option will override any redirect URL entered in the above option.|
(Based on Responses)
|This will close the collector after a certain number of responses have been received.|
(Based on Date)
|This will close the collector on a certain date. You cannot accept new responses to a closed survey. You can re-open the survey at any time.|
|Password Protection||A password must be entered before the respondent can access the survey page.|
