External Study Credit Granting with Snap Surveys

While these instructions refer to “credit granting”, they work for both credit and paid studies. For paid studies, participation will be marked (instead of credit granted) just like with any other paid study.

Here are the basic steps, which are subject to change (since the product is controlled by Snap Surveys):

  1. On your Sona Systems site, change the Study URL so it includes &u=%SURVEY_CODE% in the URL. So if the Snap Surveys URL is:https://www.snapsurveys.com/s.asp?k=12345
    then change it to
  2. Having completed Step 1, the Study Information on your Sona Systems site now displays a URL labeled “Snap Surveys Webpage after Submitting URL”. In Snap Surveys, paste this value into the “Webpage after submitting” field without any changes.
  3. If Steps 1 and 2 were completed correctly, then Snap Surveys will add in the parameter automatically when it redirects the user. The Snap Surveys webpage after submitting URL will look something like this:https://yourschool.sona-systems.com/webstudy_credit.aspx?experiment_id=123&credit_token=4e48f9b638a&survey_code=ID.Name
