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?
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.
Well this LOOKED fantastic. exactly what I needed. And I went to the various links to show me how to get it input. But for the life of me it does not work. I’m sure I’m inputting it incorrectly, but it’s not working and I can’t figure out why. When I look at the various “merge codes” the ‘counter’ isn’t one of the codes. So I tried putting it in exactly as it described and nothing happened. Then I tried putting in actual merge codes that were in the list, and neither date nor time appeared either in the description or in the place where codes were to go.
I must be doing something wrong, but I do not know what. Can you help?
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!
