In some surveys, you may want to require respondents to log in to a survey in order to capture information about them, such as their Lehigh userID, name or email address. Follow the steps below to set up authentication requiring respondents to log in using their Lehigh userID and password prior to taking the survey.
Please note that the “Preview Survey” and the "Look and Feel" function do not work with the Authenticator active. Do all survey testing prior to adding authentication. Make sure to test authentication and results prior to sending out the survey.
Click Add Embedded Data. There are two fields to complete for each piece of embedded data. The first field, Embedded data to set, can be a name of your choosing (Note: It is case sensitive and spaces may be used). The second field, Field from SSO, should contain the code from the middle column of the image in Step 5, e.g., urn:oid:18.104.22.168.
You can copy and paste the codes below (begin with urn:) into the Field from SSO field.
Click Save Flow. The embedded data will appear in the results of your survey.
You can also insert embedded data into your survey questions or text. To do this...
The embedded field will look like this in the text of the survey item. The survey taker will see his or her information (e.g., name) where the variable appears.
Make sure to test all aspects of the authentication and embedding of text before you distribute your survey!
