Flash, Domain, Cookie Duration And http/https Publishing Options

UPDATE: MAY 5 2015

Please note that the content in this article focuses on a legacy version of the iPerceptions code, and as such may no longer be applicable.  To learn more about our Universal Code, please check out this section of our support forum.




Updated June 10 2013

Since this article was first written, there have been a few changes to the options that are available to modify the invitation code for your survey:




First, the “Get Survey Code” page has been renamed the “Invitation Code” page, and can be accessed within the “Collect” section of the portal.

Overall, the “Session Cookie”, “Cookie Expiration Days” and “Remove Flash” options still remain, though the latter has been renamed “Disable Flash”. 

However, the “http / https” option has been removed from this page, as the latest version of the iPerceptions script does not require this distinction to be made.  In its place, an “On Load” option has been added which, when activated, ensures that the iPerceptions script is called only after all of the other content on the page has finished loading.

Thank you,

We have received may questions about the 4 options that are available on the "Get Survey Code" page in the Publish section of the survey interface. Please continue reading for a brief explanation of the 4 options, and feel free to ask any questions in reply to this thread.



1. By default, the radio button is set to http. If you plan to deploy the survey on secure pages, you will need to select "https" instead of "http".

2. If you have flash elements on your page and you're experiencing conflicts between the survey invitation and your Flash, click on the "Remove flash" box to deactivate the flash elements of your page when the invitation is served. Once the invitation disappears, the page will be reloaded and the flash reactivated.

3. The "DOMAIN" tick box has been removed. See the 2nd comment in this thread for a description of the new  "Session" box and its effects.

4. By default, the invitation places a cookie on the visitor's computer, preventing that visitor from being re-invited for a term of 90 days. If you would like to modify the duration of the cookie, click the check box and update the number in the cookie duration box.

If you have an questions or would like some further clarification, please don't hesitate to ask.

    What does the new Session tick box do?

    The "Domain" tick box was removed during the last release.

    It was replaced with a "Session" tick box, which does the following:

    Toggles the placement of a session cookie. The session cookie will ensure that the user is invited ONLY from their first exposure to the script. In cases where a user would deploy the survey in a global header/footer, it was possible that the visitor would be invited several pages into their site experience. In order to ensure that the user is only invited on their landing page (first page viewed), turning on the session cookie will ensure that they are removed from the invitation pool on subsequent page views during their visit/session.
