How to check redirections

K. iCode ENTRY LINK

This is the entry link to the iCode survey. Use it in your system to redirect from your survey to iCode survey.
Please make sure that variables specified at the end of this link match your system and every variable has been assigned a certain value. If not, iCode will allow you to enter one respondent and then the link without proper values will be blocked.

N. Apply

Confirm your settings and update the iCode survey link to collect the variables you specified.

O. Survey

Check if redirections is running and if the survey runs properly.

P. Data

Check if all required variables have been passed. Data contains only the iCode ID and dynamic variables for the last ten respondents.

R. Exit

Click here to return to the iCode desktop page (if you are an iCode user) or inform iCode user that redirects have been set (if you are a panel provider).

S. Status

This option allow you to track the stage of your survey. If survey has the status “ready to go” as you did not press the GO LIVE button yet. The respondents’ responses are not gathered until you change the survey status in iCode desktop to “in progress” by clicking the GO LIVE button.
