💡 This article covers

Survey Link Copy

💼 What it does

Pro-tip: Double check that you are sharing this link, as opposed to a preview link.

URL parameters

💼 What it does

  • Allows you to customize your survey link and analyze your data based on known information.

💪 When to use it

  • Here are some examples of data you can pass using URL parameters.
    • Respondent email address
    • Customer ID
    • Name
    • Demographics such as gender, age, etc. 
    • Traffic source
    • Subscription tier
    • Any other known information available from your CRM or about the group of respondents you sent your survey to

Note: It is not necessary to predefine your URL parameters. You can note which parameters you expect and want to show analytics, even before they’re sent. The one exception is Salesforce. Salesforce requires a known URL parameter to know which object to update. Click here to learn about the Salesforce integration.
