Hi all,

I´m running a psychological experiment via LimeSurvey (LS). Since I´m recruiting participants in diverse online forums I want to keep track of which participant is coming from which forum. Hence, I activated the referrer-URL option in the general settings of my survey.But apparently, this is not working. I only get a refurl saved if I use the test survey-function inside LS. In all other cases the refurl field is just blank.
I also tried to manually enter the refurl with something like "?refurl=forum1" at the end of the survey link to identify participants but that did not work out as well.

I would be very grateful if somebody could help me out with that.

Cheers,
J.

Hi,

Think best is to use PASSTHRU settings.

You see this in survey settings/Panel integration
The youn can prefill a Question with a param from url. Choose a text questioon type and set 'allways hide this question' to yes.
