Controlling Who Participates

When creating online surveys, you will want to control who can participate. You select who may participate in your surveys by selecting the Survey's Access Type(s). Interceptum offers three Access Types as described below.

Access to a Survey may be any combination of these three levels. For example, by selecting Invite and Intercept, you will have two types of participants. First, the participants that you individually invite by sending them an email via the Interceptum platform. The second group of participants are the visitors who have been intercepted on your web site and who have agreed to participate in the online survey.




Any person who has the Survey's URL can access the survey online and participate.

You may simply email the Survey's URL to the persons you want to participate.


Only participants who have been invited through the Interceptum platform can participate.

When a participant is invited via the Interceptum platform, an invitation code is automatically generated and sent to the participant by email. The Survey's URL is also sent to the participant.


Only participants who have been intercepted, by an Intercept integrated on your web site, and who have accepted the invitation can participate.
