Set Up a Study

A study is the vehicle that lets you invite participants, schedule delivery of surveys to them, and report data collected in the surveys. An organization can have multiple studies, and surveys can be re-used among them freely.

Create a Study

Once you’ve created a survey, the “Home” dashboard will prompt you to create a study.

Enter a study name and select “Add Study.” This will bring up the study editor.

There are a host of study options available. At minimum, you must enter the following:

  • Display Name - Enter a name that will be displayed to participants.
  • Consent Survey - Select the consent survey that informs (and optionally records consent for) how participant data will be collected and used.
  • Enable Platforms - Select which platforms the study will be available on.

Click “Save” when you’ve entered all the study information.

Schedule Surveys

From the study screen, you can schedule the delivery of surveys.

For the sample sleep study, you can set it up to deliver the sleep time survey once a week and give them five days to complete the survey. Make the start date tomorrow.

Select Sensor Data

When creating a study, you have the option of collecting passive sensor data from participants who join your study.

For the sample sleep study, you might be interested in collecting the participant’s Sleep Analysis and Steps data from Apple Health.

Invite Participants

Finally, the study screen allows you to manage participants in the study. You can issue invitations, see which invitations have been accepted, and view a summary of study participation.

To get started, you can invite yourself to the sample sleep study. Select “Invite Participants” from the study screen enter a single column of Comma-Separated Values (CSV) data containing your own email, as shown:

Email
you@example.com

Click “Preview and Send Invitations” to review and accept the list. You should receive an email inviting you to join the study.
