Working with GET variables

In cases where you know certain information about your respondents before they enter the survey and want to use that information in your analysis, you can pass the data to through the shareable links. For example:

In this example, will record two GET variables for this respondent:

  • customer-id with the value 34324, and
  • gender with the value male.

Accessing GET variables

This information passed on through GET variables will be available in several places:

  • In the list of respondents for your experiment (which you can export as a .csv file);
  • The Excel export file (go to your experiment report, click “Export to Excel”);
  • In the segmentation section of your report, where it can be used to split the analysis into different segments.

Redirecting with GET variables

It is possible to to redirect respondents to another website after the completion of the survey and also pass on GET variables in the redirect URL. When you do that, make sure to put each variable in square brackets. For example, http://another.platform/complete?id=[id]&gender=[gender] and http://another.platform/screenout?id=[id]&gender=[gender].

If you would like to automatically append variables to the end of the redirect URL, simply click “Append all GET variables”. For example, if a respondent comes to on, and you set up a redirect to http://another.platform/complete, with the “Append all GET variables” setting, they will be redirected to http://another.platform/complete?id=HVBYVIIY34&gender=male.

If you would like to pass the respondent IDs assigned by, you can add [] into the redirect URL (for example, http://another.survey.platform/survey?ConjointLyID=[]).
