March 2022 updates

At ExpiWell, our technology makes research easier. The following updates remove barriers to survey participation. 

  • Simplified participant enrollment: Researchers can attach a personal identifier to their participants when sending invitations to their studies. Each invitation contains a one-time session link that onboards participants without requiring them to create an account. 
  • Auto-generated sign-up links: Researchers can now invite participants to a study with a one-time session link without needing to provide a personal identifier. 
  • Expanded thank you page options: Researchers can include a thank you page at the end of their web surveys where they can include a one-time session link to join a mobile study right after. This is a great option for researchers who use panel companies for recruitment. 

Get in touch if you have any questions about these updates or would like to learn more about our technology. We’d be happy to speak with you!

December 2021 updates

  • Event triggering: Researchers can schedule actions to occur based on a survey submission, exiting a survey, or adjusting a survey window.

October 2021 updates 

Live Editing and display logic now available!

As a part of this new feature rollout, we have two new updates that were a high priority to release: 

  • Live editing: Researchers can now make changes to their schedule and have participants re-add the project to see those changes while keeping their progress.
  • Display logic: Researchers can now set conditions for when a question is displayed to a participant based on a response to a previous question.
We have also enhanced the experience with five additional features that were needed in the process:
  • Piping: Researchers can now display the response selected to participants in a follow-up question.
  • Loop & merge: Researchers can decide to loop over a list of questions based on the participant’s response.
  • Web media recording: Web surveys will support recording audio, video, or pictures directly instead of only uploading media files.
  • Visualization updates: Researchers can now organize their dashboard (drag and drop), select and view multiple variables at once, and view the breakdown of the selected variable.
  • Mandarin Chinese translations
