The "URL data integration" feature (available with a PRO+ account) allows you to integrate information already known abour your respondents into the URL of your questionnaire. It involves adding variables to the questionnaire's URL that correspond to the answers to specific questions. This way, you can generate customized URL links to share with your contacts/respondents.
With this functionnality, you can save your respondents time by asking them to confirm or correct informations or enchance your analysis by utilizing pre-filled information.
To use this feature, simply follow those 3 steps.
First, add the question you want to pre-fill in your questionnaire.
Not all question types can be pre-filled:
- Matrix questions
- Pen questions
- Upload questions
To create URL variables:
Note: We recommend using short variables name (a single letter may be sufficient). For example, for a customer number, you can use the variable "cn", "c" for a city, "pr" for a profession, etc.
Note: For multiple-choice questions, indicate variable names for the choices. As for the form question, select the associated field.
You will find it listed on your interface. By clicking on the 3 dots on the right, you can rename or delete it.
Be careful, as deletion is permanent! If one of your URL links uses this variable, the corresponding information will no longer be pre-filled.
To create another variable, simply click on the green "Add URL variable" button and repeat the process. You can create as many variables as needed.
Finally, use your variables to create customized questionnaire URL links integrating the information of your choice.
You can save the link by activating the "save URL' option, giving it the name of your choice, and validating it! You can copy the link by clicking on "Copy link".
Alternatively, you can find the link in the right-hand list on the 3 dots on the right and then by selecting "View URL".
To generate another personalized URL, simply repeat the process.
Once your have generated your personalized (pre-filled) URL link(s), you can share them to your respondents.
