Share an Alchemer Survey via Alchemer Digital Prompts

This feature requires both the Alchemer Survey and Alchemer Digital products. If you have only purchased one of these products and want to learn more about the other, contact us today

This article provides information on how to use an Alchemer Digital Prompt to direct customers to an Alchemer Survey, for the purpose of conducting more advanced research.

When using Alchemer Digital, there may be instances where you want to use Alchemer Survey's advanced research capabilities with an Alchemer Digital Prompt. Specifically, you may want to take advantage of Alchemer Survey's additional question types, quota features, or advanced reporting while using an Alchemer Prompt to drive customers to that survey.

Here are some use cases: 

  • You'd like to use a question type not offered via an Alchemer Digital Survey. For example, something like an Image Select question. 
  • You'd like to use advanced survey logic features offered through Alchemer Survey. For example, a logic feature like question randomization. 
  • You'd like to use some of Alchemer Survey's additional reporting functionality. For example, to set up a monthly cadence of reports or create your own Crosstab Reports.
