Short URL Service and QR Codes

There are times where it is really nice to have a short URL that people can remember for your survey. We're super-excited to announce a new, free service that lets you transform your survey URL to a simple link http://oursurvey.ca/wmHZc0P

There's other benefits if you sign up for a free account, so be sure to read on....

Getting Started

If you have a public survey (that is, you aren't using Tokens) and want to create a URL that is either easy to remember or easy to type into a web browser, you're going to want to start using OurSurvey.ca. You can get started right from your survey dashboard. You'll see a link on the dashboard like this:

  1. Click on the link and you'll be redirected to the service in a new tab.

  2. Return to your survey summary page, and grab the URL for your survey (if you have a multilingual survey, be sure to create short URLs for both links). The survey URLs are here in your survey summary page:



  3. Now, go back to OurSurvey.ca and create an account if you don't already have one. 

Once you create an account, login, and at the top left of the admin screen, you'll see the option "New Shorten Link":

Enter your survey link, and specify a personalized alias (if it has already been used, you'll be advised):

Once your URL is set up, you will get access to QR codes, link management, and traffic metrics...

Via your account, you can manage multiple URLs and create custom short URL tags (assuming no one else has created it yet -- like http://oursurvey.ca/Canada150)

Getting a QR Code

If you're looking for the QR codes after you've created an account, click on the left menu option Manage Links, and then click on the Stats link beheath the URL in question:

And you'll see the QR code :
