Please note that d. Survey Participants is only enabled in closed-access mode. In this section, the survey administrator can invite participants via an email which contains a unique survey link or generate unique access codes for each invited participant.
a. Anonymous link
The Survey summary page displays the anonymous link, which can be shared with survey participants.
b. QR code
Clicking Open sharing panel opens a panel that displays the options for generating a QR code.
You can also share via Facebook or Twitter by clicking
Open sharing panel
(as shown above). The following panel will be displayed, which allows you to choose to share your survey via Facebook or Twitter.
d. Survey participants
Please note that by initializing the survey participants table, the surveys state switched to closed-access mode. People will only be able to access the survey if they have an access code (either manually or by URL) which contains the code.
Using the survey participants functionality, you can:
Create dummy participants
Send email invitations
Send email reminders
Generate unique access tokens
Allow public registration – People who visit your survey's URL without a token will be provided with the opportunity to register.
