You can send respondents an open or a personal link to the questionnaire.
This article contains the following sections:
Open link to the questionnaire
By using the questionnaire's open answer questionnaire, anyone with the link can answer to the questionnaire.
When you haven't connected the questionnaire with any events, you can only send out the questionnaire's open answer link, which can be found on the page Questionnaires > Open answer link, if the questionnaire is published and you have allowed answering anonymously (see instructions below).
When using the open link, you need to allow anonymous answers in Settings > Settings > Can be answered anonymously.
If you publish an open answer link to a questionnaire, answers will always be anonymous, as the respondents are not connected with any event/participant in Lyyti. If you have created separate questions for contact details, Lyyti's anonymity setting does not affect the mandatory setting of self-created questions.
Personal link to questionnaire
You can send out a personal link to the questionnaire through the communications tool in a Lyyti event. Select desired participants: e.g. the attendees of an event, everyone who had the fish dish at your party, or everyone who you've added to an event used for sending out emails.
- On the page Events, open your preferred event that you've connected your questionnaire with. If you haven't linked these two yet, please do so now. Instructions can be found here.
- In the left hand menu click Communication > Create email.
- Select recipients, write your topic and select a layout.
- Write your email
- In the text editor, click on Questionnaires, then click on preferred questionnaire to link it to the email. The link will be added to where your cursor is at the time of selecting the questionnaire link.
Note! Delete the personal registration link that is automatically added to a new e-mail, replace it with the questionnaire link instead.
You can now send the message to yourself as a test, schedule sending, or send the message straight away.
Did you create a questionnaire that is not connected with a specific event? You can send the open link to the questionnaire from outside of Lyyti or publish it anywhere.
If you wish to send the link from Lyyti, you can create a new messaging event.
Create an event: at this point you only need to give the event a name and to make sure it is open for a longer period of time so it's not archived, then save and close. If you wish to send personal links to the questionnaire, name the event so that it makes sense on the questionnaire page when you connect the questionnaire with the event (you'll need to do this if you want to send out personal links to the questionnaire). If you're sending an open link, you don't need to think about the event name as it's not shown anywhere.
Upload the respondents/participants to the event from Excel and create a new message. You can send the questionnaire's link by email or SMS. If you want to send the personal link, you can find it in the e-mails text editor under Questionnaires, and if you want to send the open link you can paste it into the message or set it as a hyperlink.
