Project Screener Survey

Project Screener Survey

Create Your Project Screener

When you are recruiting participants from a panel, from a community, or from an online ad, it is important to create a project screener to screen participants for the right attributes.

One functionality of the "Project Screener" is to create screener questions that screen participants for specific attributes. Later on, you can also manage the number of participants for those specific attributes. See "Quota".

There can only be one project screener for each project and all participants will have to take the project screener when they join the project before they are allowed to see the project and surveys.
