Creating a custom Survey URL

You can create your own custom URL or manually add to a built URL using querystring parameters to utilise a survey's parameters.

Parameters are added to the end of a link to pre-fill survey fields. The first parameter must be preceded by a question mark (?) and all subsequent parameters with an ampersand (&). In addition, the base URL and the "id" parameter, to identify the survey, are required for all survey URLs.

For Example:

The following URL would display the survey with the ID 1.

NOTE: The <YourDomain> should be replaced with the name provided to you by . For example the URL for the demonstration is

The following are built-in parameters:

ParameterDescriptionLocation for obtaining valid IDs
id Survey ID Surveys > Edit Surveys
cID Course ID Misc> Courses
fID Facilitator ID Misc> Facilitators
lID Location ID Misc> Locations
pID Project ID Misc> Projects
wID Workshop ID Misc> Workshops

NOTE: The Build URL feature is the best way to include built-in parameters in a URL. The URL that is generated can then be copied and further customised as required.

In addition to built-in parameters, surveys can have custom parameters. Any Survey Parameter with a URL Parameter set can be used in a URL just like the built-in parameters, although the former cannot be generated with the Build URL feature.

The Survey Parameters List displays the custom parameters. It is accessible by choosing Surveys > Edit Surveys and then choosing the Edit link for a survey in the Survey List.

For Example:

The sample Survey Parameters List, shown above, indicates the querystring parameter 'newparam' can be used to pass a value for the Custom Parameter field in the survey.

This could be achieved with the following URL:

Visiting the URL would produce something like the sample screenshot below:
