Recording website behaviour

Hi,

It's a long shot, but wondering if LimeSurvey can handel the following.


A survey responder (likely MTurk) will take the survey as usual. Halfway through, the survey will re-direct them to another website where they have to take an action.

Once they have taken an action, they can return to the survey and complete it.

If this is possible, I also wonder if the action taken on the website can be recorded?

Thanks!

You cannot redirect away from the survey and then return to the survey unless using token response persistence, and this will return you to the last submitted group, not the last group you actually saw.

A couple of alternatives...

1) Two surveys, the first survey redirects to the remote website, that website then redirects to the second survey. You can prefill questions in the second survey via URL parameters - manual.limesurvey.org/URL_fields#Prefill...using_GET_parameters

2) Place the remote site in an iframe and pass actions up to the parent frame (the survey) via JavaScript messages - developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Window/postMessage

In either case, you will need some access for coding on the remote site.

Cheers,

That is not a feature of LimeSurvey.
