Answering questions via links (in-email surveys)
You may want to provide questions to surveys within emails. This is done by making each answer to your first question links in your email that go to your Link Survey but contain a unique answer parameter to identify the answer clicked.
Tip: You can use our branching logic to determine the message or follow-up questions the user will see after clicking the answer in the email.
Requirements: First question of survey must either be a single answer selection (radio button) or NPS score. Randomize option must be off.
To link to a specific answer you can use the “a” parameter. The value is a number and corresponds to the order of the answers starting with 0. 0 for the first answer, 1 for the next, and so on.
For example; If you had the following answers for the question: “What is your favorite ice cream?”:
The URL for “Vanilla” would be:
