To make the survey available to a selected group of people,
enable authentication through one of these methods:
- Off: No password is
required to enter the survey. Use this mode if the survey is open
to the general public.
- Password: a fixed
password all users must enter to respond to the survey.
- Password assigned by
invitations: requires invitees to be added to the
survey. When invitees are added, a unique id and a key (password)
will be generated for each. The link sent by email by the
invitation feature will include the id and key in the link. In
other words, each invitee will receive a unique link to the survey.
If these are not included, the respondent will be asked to enter
these values. For more information on invitations, see invitations
Depending on the survey, it may be required that the responses
must be kept anonymous. The anonymity only applies if the
invitation feature is used in the survey. This is because the
invitation being sent is linked to the responses. This is necessary
to enable tracking of invitees (whether they have responded to the
survey or not). Also the IP check for multiple responses should be
disabled to improve anonymity.
Opinio allows three levels of anonymity:
- No anonymity. Invitees
are completely linked to the respondents.
- Partly anonymous. This
means that the link between invitees and respondents are not shown
on the screen, but is kept on the database level. Then the reminder
feature will still work (it is dependent on a link between
respondent and invitee, to check if an invitee has responded to the
- Full anonymity. The link
between the invitee is completely removed both on the screen and on
the database level.
Note that the anonymity will only be enabled for the respondents
answering a survey after the feature is activated. To keep full
anonymity for all respondents, this feature must be enabled before
the survey is started.
