This article will explain how to create a link to an open invitation as well as the options of managing the data gathered from it.



Once you've created the initial setup for your Open invitation scheduler, you want to generate an actual link you can put on your website, in an app, or whereever. An open invitation is accessible and can be filled out by anyone, but you will be able to create conditions like a specific time frame, a maximum numbers of questionnaires to be created or a check on authenticity surrounding this open link. Also, you will be able to track specific results that are linked to a particular link, using autofilling of labelled data.



First, however, let's create a link:

To do so, click on “add open invitation”.

A popup will appear, in which you can specify the open link by adding a name and a timeframe when the link should give access to the questionnaire.
Furthermore it is possible to choose whether the data should be treated as live data or test data and you can set a maximum amount to the times a link can be accessed to fill out a questionnaire.

A check on authenticity based on device and session can be activated to ensure that not one single person accesses the questionnaire from the same device a multitude of times to generate “fake data” and if you like you can generate a QR code in high resolultion alongside the link. 

By selecting a definition and autofilling them with predefined labelled data, you will be able to track specific results that are linked to a particular link.


Example:

Suppose you have two shops you need monitored, by using the same questionnaire. By creating one link for each shop and autofilling the definition with the labelled data you created earlier in the project section of your data garden (definitions), all data that would be generated by people visiting shop A can be separated from the data that would be generated by people visiting shop B. Simply place the QR code of the links on the receipts of the shops concerned, or place the different links on the websites of the particular locations and all data that is generated by people entering a survey is linked to a particular store.


Another great example of using the autofill function to manage different links is when you would like to perform an AB test, where the behavior of two different groups of people needs to be compared.
