Hello Survey Project team

Thank you for this toolset, truly awesome tool. I am getting ready to send out my first survey.

I am looking to see if there is a way that i can generate a unique URL per person for a survey, so that just linking tells me who they are. I am thinking that this already exists and I am just misunderstanding what is already there. I tried generating tokens, but could not determine the proper syntax/usage.

Thank you again for your efforts!

Hello J-

You can try using menoption security/ form security/ email code protection. You will now be able to follow the results per email adress at menu Campaigns/ Mailstatus.

The generated link in the invitation message also already contains a unique id per person (UID = ....):

http://yourserver/survey.aspx?surveyid=b646f32c-a471-44b7-bace-beef76ff1dd9&__uid=[--invitationid-]__

Hope this answers your question.

Kind regards
SP coordinator
