This article will help you to understand the setup of a open link invitation and QR code setup.
This scheduler creates an open link or QR code that can be shared. Anyone that clicks on this link is able to access the questionnaire and every time the link is clicked, a new record is created in the database. This scheduler type is great for adding a survey option to printed matter such as marketing materials, or for adding a survey to online sources (your website, in an e-mail footer etc.)
You can find the open link and QR code planner by clicking on the “add” button when choosing a scheduler for a specific project.
The screenshot below illustrates the initial page when choosing a scheduler for open link invitations and QR-code in which you will be asked to give the scheduler a name.
After you click on the “add button” a widget will be created and you'll be able to set up and edit the actual scheduler.
The name you gave your scheduler is already filled out. If you like you can give a description of the contents of the scheduler you’re about to set up.
The tab “Open invitation link” lets you create and manage your open invitations. On the overview screen you will be able to see a complete list of all your links that have been generated within that scheduler.
