Adding a confirmation link is a crucial step on the path to publishing your own survey in Answeo As we have said before in our previous articles, confirmation links are necessary for the respondents of your questionnaire so that they can confirm participation in your survey and collect their payment. By publishing a survey with a missing (or incorrectly placed) confirmation link you run the risk of collecting incomplete responses or having your response collection paused due to issue reports submitted by respondents struggling to complete your questionnaire. It is therefore worth checking where your survey actually ends and making sure that the confirmation link will be easily found by our respondents.

In order to make our researchers’ job easier, below we compiled some examples showing how to correctly place a confirmation link on two popular survey creation platforms – Google Forms and SurveyGizmo. We hope that this short guide will help our users correctly add confirmation links in their own surveys.

Confirmation Links in Google Forms

Description: Accessing survey Settings.

In order to add your confirmation link to a survey created in Google Forms, you must customize the confirmation message. To do so open your survey Settings (cog icon in the upper right corner of the screen).

In the Presentation tab of the Settings window you have the ability to modify the default confirmation message. Paste the confirmation link you copied earlier into the text box. Click the Save button to confirm the changes. This way you can be sure that the confirmation link will be displayed only after the respondent completed their response.
