There are two types of respondent reports available in the CheckMarket survey tool:
- the report with metadata, also referred to as the internal respondent report
- the report without metadata, also known as the external respondent report or the shareable report
Metadata can include data such as language, location based on IP address, date responded, … but also all data that you have imported along with your contacts.
By default the report with metadata will be shown when opening respondent reports in the platform. When sharing the reports with external parties, e.g. by including them in notifications or adding a link on the thank-you page, the report without metadata will be used.
The shareable report can be viewed by anyone with the link, and the internal report is only visible if signed in.
For de-identified surveys, metadata will be hidden in the internal reports as well. For more information on this setting, please read our article on de-identifying surveys.
