Hi,

The subject says it all... Can I somehow use email as token? I tried uploading a sample where the email is listed in the token column, but the '@' is not allowed. I need to send the respondents back to a third party system at the end of the survey, and the only way to identify them is to append the email address to the end-url.

plz advice...

// thanx

Why not using the email in a custom variable of the token table. You can access this just like you would access the token. This would give you the email in EM, assuming that you saved it into the custom attribute "attribute_1"
{TOKEN:ATTRIBUTE_1}

Hm... I might have missed a piece here. The members are coming in from the third party system. I need to validate them coming in, and after taking the survey, I need to send them back to the same system. Problem is that when the member come knocking on Limesurvey, the only ID he/she can carry is the email address.

The URL in the third party system look like this:

lime.com/index.php/123456?token= [%email%]&newtest=y

Sorry for the confusion...

In this case you won't use tokens but the panel integration. Have a look at that in the manual.

Basically what you do is you save a variable from the URL into a hidden question in your survey and then pass it into the endurl.

Do not use tokens here.
