Using a QR Code to Distribute a survey

You can use a QR code to distribute a Survey Link.

QR Codes are images, similar to a barcode, that contain coded information. Some Smartphones will, when their user points the phone camera at a code that contains a URL, automatically open that URL on the phone’s browser. This makes them very useful for online surveys or forms related to specific real-world locations or events, such as exhibitions, as the codes can be placed around the location, allowing respondents to visit the survey without needing to type in a full web link.

To create a QR Code link, follow these instructions:

To set up your link:

  1. Go to the Collect page of your survey.
  2. Choose “QR Code”. This will create a new tracking link for the QR Code.
  3. Right-Click on the square QR image to save it.
  4. Use the saved image on your physical materials that you want to link to the survey.

Apart from the existence of the QR image, the link behaves as any other tracking link and can have the same settings applied.
