You will be able to :
- Track websites from where your respondents come
- Integrate your survey with your forum, portal, other community, or website so you will be able to match responses to your users
We have created a simple mechanism called referrer which enables you to integrate your survey better with any website. Referrer enables you to acquire information about source from where your respondents come. It is working by default for your surveys and tests, you don’t have to set any options for it to work.
An example survey’s collector URL :
If respondent clicks the above link and completes the survey you will be able to track back the response to the page where it came from.
As you can see the reference data contains URL information pointing to this article page. This information is based on the HTTP header field called HTTP_REFERRER. We can not give you a guarantee about this value, please read more about HTTP_REFERRER on Wikipedia.
You can customize the referrer value by adding the referrer URL variable like in the following URL :
This will result in putting BlogIntroduction as the referrer value into the response data as it is shown in the screenshot below.
Let’s summarize referrer :
- Referrer values are displayed in the response details and CSV export
- You will be able to find out where your respondents opened your survey
- Do customization and pass values like Blog, LinkedIn, CompanyWebsite, FirstMailing as the referrer
- Integrate your surveys with a forum (or a portal) by passing more custom values to referrer like ABC;XYZ; or user:ABC;page:XYZ; this way you can track not only input location but even a user in your community who responded to your survey
NOTE. Referrer may be 8192 characters long. But you should keep your custom referrer values short!
