This brief guide will provide instructions on how to set requirements for a Self-capture activity. Settings that can be changed for the respondent experience can be the activity layout. Opt for all tasks can be viewed allowing respondents to complete the tasks in whichever order they like. Single task layout ensures respondents complete the first task before they can move on.
The activity/survey end date, number of respondents, and redirect your respondents will also be covered in this article.
How to Set Requirements for a Self Captures Activity
After the activity 'Tasks' page has been completed in the editor, setting the requirements for the activity launch will come next.
This section allows you to assign a label to your activity. In Self-Capture activities, labels serve as a valuable tool for categorizing and distinguishing pre-work or post-work assignments that are associated with live interviews.
For a more in-depth understanding of labels, please refer to our article: How to Add and Utilize Labels in Your Self-Capture Activity
Respondent Experience Settings
Setting the Language
Choose the language the respondents will respond in from the drop-down menu to help translate their responses. If no language is set, the language response will default to English (United States).
If your project has consent forms enabled on it, you will be able to assign any uploaded consent forms from the project to an activity. Each activity in the project can have up to one consent form assigned to it.
Note: If you have multiple consent forms, and you need a respondent to add to an activity, it is best to upload all of those into one document to have the respondent sign all at once.
Choosing the activity layout helps you decide how respondents will complete tasks in your activity.
All Tasks - allows respondents to see all tasks.
Single Tasks - Respondents must complete the first next before moving on to the next task.
Live Interview Interest
Choosing to collect live interview interest allows you to ask respondents if they would be willing to participate in a future Live Interview. Interested respondents will be sent through the tech check process and can be scheduled for a follow-up interview from their activity/survey response page.
Activity End Settings
Set an end date to automatically close your activity on a specific date.
Respondents will be unable to access the activity once it has ended.
Number of Respondents
Set a sample size to automatically close your activity once you've heard from enough unique respondents.
Send your respondents a new URL after completing the activity.
Click 'Save & Next to save the changes.
