The 'Preview' Button (Options and Settings)

by Phil A.

UPDATED: March 4 2015




A ‘Preview’ button is provided on the ‘Publish’ bar that allows you to test the survey from the respondents’ point of view.   The Preview version will show all questions that have been activated, and all answers entered for it will not be saved. 

When clicking the ‘Preview’ button, a new window will open providing multiple options through which the iPerceptions survey can be previewed.  In addition to being able to test the survey directly in the Active Research Platform, additional options provided to access the Preview version of the survey include QR code, SMS, as well as an email link which can be provided to test the survey on Desktop, Tablet and Mobile devices.


The image provided below of the ‘Preview’ window shows what users will see when logged into the Active Research Platform using a Desktop device.
