I have 170 stores to send email invitations to. Because of using prefilled in questions, each store has a different link. Multiple people at the store will be taking the survey, so tokens cannot be used.
I would like to be able to email them and put the link to their store in the {attribute_1} field in the token table so that I can quickly send out the 170 emails.
Does lime have a way to do this or to send out emails I have to initialize tokens?

Thanks.

You need tokens to send emails to respondents. The token table is where the addresses are stored.

With 1.91+ version, you can have multi answer for token.

Look at the token table.

I saw that you can increase the number of uses for a token, but there is a problem with that. We are sending the survey link to the manager at each store, then the manager is forwarding that link to all the participants in his store. If I use a token and send it to the manager and he passes it to 20 people that won't work. What I was hoping for is a way to be able use lime to email all the surveys links out with the first answer prefilled in for question 1 that is the store number.
