Add a link

Use this feature when you'd like to allow people who don't participate in your survey to still be entered in a draw or asked for a follow-up survey.

  • URL: add the link
  • URL Description: add URL text that will be displayed, for example, "Click here to enter into a draw."
  • Autoload URL checkbox: We advise that you don't turn this on as it will not allow research participants to chose if they'd like to be directed to a draw or follow-up survey.
  • Active checkbox: Ensure this is checked in order for this functionality to work when the survey is activated.
