Security Number


Is there a way to place a unique number at the end of each survey when it is completed, so the respondent can copy it or print it and use it to redeem something at the retail store in question?  So at the end of the survey, the respondent would get a final page that indicates something like, “Here is your unique code.  Please copy it or print out this page and take it to The Gap to get your $5 off.”  Then there would be a number unique to that respondent’s survey:  31945 for example.  Each respondent would receive a different code number.


Can that be done?

    You can edit either your Thank you text or the text that says COMMENT I HOPE, and you should have a Merge Code helper menu, where you can select the hidden value from page one of your survey.

    It should look something like this:

    Hope this helps!!

      First of all, thank you.  I think I’m getting close.  I put the counter instruction on page one, as you’ve instructed.  

      Then I went down to the “Thank You” page, but I’m lost there.  I can’t follow how to find the element from the first page’s hidden value.  

      I’m sure it’s simple to you…but I’m in a fog.  I feel I’m close (with your help), however.

        It sounds like you are going with the survey counter merge code option.

        I can certainly try to help, but keep in mind that I (and folks in the Community in general) don’t have access to your account/survey (perhaps you can provide screenshots of what you have set up so far?).

        You want to make sure that you are using the counter merge code as follows:


        This should be placed in a Hidden Value Action on page one of your your survey.

        Then on your survey’s Thank You page, you would add a Text/Instructions element and pull in the value from the Hidden Value (which contains the counter merge code.

        In order to pull in this value, you will need the merge code for the Hidden Value itself (you should have the option to grab this merge code from the Merge Code menu when editing your piece of text).

        Hope this helps clarify things a bit.

          There are a couple of options for this that are worth exploring to see if either will work for you:

          Adding a Response ID:

          Creating a Coupon Code:

          I suspect this second option is closer to what you are looking for.

          I hope this gives you some options!

            • Lola, you are a genius. I finally understood what you were saying and all the help you gave me, and it worked PERFECTLY. I could not have done it without you. If there is something I can do to ‘like’ you or give you some global kudos, I will. Just let me know. You are a lifesaver and I appreciate your good work…and patience.
