Hello Lime Survey,

I have a problem and am hoping you can help me.....i have finished setting up my questionnaire for my MBA market research project, but am having difficulties with distribution, is it possible to distribute my questionnaire just by asking my target market to click on my link which will automatically direct them to my questionnaire for them to respond?

My research is focused on a particular target market, and i dont have email addresses of the market population, is it possbile to distribute via click?

Will very much appreciate your kind help on what steps i need to follow to complete my MBA Research questionnaire.

Best Regards.....

Tilly.

You don't need tokens/emails to invite people. You can distribute the survey link online, printed however you would like to. Sending out emails is just one of many options.
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

Once you published your survey (don't go for the closed mode, because then you will need tokens and they are usually individual).

Then you can copy the survey link, publish it on websites, send it via email, post, whatever. However, if you don't loose tokens, anyone who knows the link can access the survey and take part.

Hello Holch,

Please kindly see attached file, how do i remove the name and email settings of participants? i want my survey anonymous but with this set up it seems its no longer anonymous and i might be going against the school rules as they dont want anyone collecting names and emails of people who respond to our online surveys.

Please advice.

Thanks....

You have made your survey closed somehow. I never use this mode so I am not quite sure where to find this.

Hello Denis,

I got below message from the remove token table, does this mean if i delete tokens, i wont be able to access my survey anymore? :S

I want to make my survey open and provide link that people can just click on and respond to my questionnaire.

what do i do to make it open and easy to access?




Warning

If you delete this table tokens will no longer be required to access this survey.
A backup of this table will be made if you proceed. Your system administrator will be able to access this table.

No, it means exactly what it says in the first sentence: "If you delete this table tokens will no longer be required to access this survey.".

So the tokens/registration will no longer be required to access the survey. Which means the survey is open.

The table with the tokens will only be accessible by the administrator.
[Denis had explained this already, but I hadn't seen the last to responses]

Hey Guys,

I still have one more issue to clarify before activating my survey... I used words and not numbers for my codes, i dont know if this is correct and wont mess up my response statistics.

I have 5 question groups with their titles and the following question codes;

Gender, Occupation, Age,Reactions,Price_preference, Like_Reason, Dislike_Reason, Product_Demand, Consumer_Need, Purchase_Reason, Buy Trigger, Rating, Purchase_Likelihood , Product_attributes, expectation
Opinion, what_do_you_think, purchase_decision, product_idea_rating, approval_rate

Can i do this instead of using complicated codes and values?

The survey is easy and straight forward , no conditions were set.

Please advice so that i can activate my survey.

Thanks.
