Engaging Participants

Participants are engaged by sending them the unique URL to your card sort project. The URL can be found on the projects page.

By using extra URL parameters it is possible to prefill the participants identifying information. This can be useful if you want to eliminate the need for a participant to enter their name or email; or if you are using identifiers that are pre-created. To create a unique URL for a single participant do the following:

If your project URL is:
http://www.simplecardsort.com/sort.php?s=9LAY3JTC&p=101

and you want to create a URL for 'matt-johnson' the unique URL would be:
http://www.simplecardsort.com/sort.php?s=9LAY3JTC&p=101&u=matt-johnson

Note: To use spaces in a URL substitute the space with "%20". For example "matt johnson" would changed to "matt%20johnson".
