FAQ

Is there an easier way to integrate?

Standard integration requires the partner to do 3 key things:

  1. Analyze the quota plan and make sense of filters and quota groups.
  2. Make sure users’ profiles match the targeting in the quota plan 100%.
  3. Send us the exact quota cell ids the user qualifies for.

Following the guidance above will better assure that your conversion rates match the project’s incidence rate. However, there’s an easier way to integrate. Dynata automatically refines users and places them into the correct quota cells. If you don’t want to analyze the quota plan in it’s entirety, do this:

  1. Analyze the filters and match your users to the targeting attributes contained here. As long as the user profile contains the filters, Dynata will figure out the quota groups and quota cells.
  2. The user’s profile doesn’t need to contain the attributes listed in the quota cells. Dynata will ask profiling questions for the attributes listed in the quota cells if they’re missing from the user’s profile.
  3. You don’t need to send us quota cell IDs in the entry URL, and Dynata will automatically place users into the right quota cells. For example, you can leave qcids empty:

https://www.peanutlabs.com/marketplace/surveyEntry.php?hash=52a1b48d1a386412749848e5d3d0fb46041e446b&tid=382892&uid=111155&appid=10112<id=51964254&qcids=

If you follow this guidance, you may still analyze the quota groups and see if the user’s profile contains any of the targeting in the quota cells. Even though Dynata will handle refinement, if you know before hand the user will be unable to qualify, then you will save a start.

Example

Please take a look at the quota plan for the following survey:

projectId: 8995264
extProjectId: 932875
lineItemId: 52867660
extLineItemId: 124915179

You’ll notice that the filters are fairly simple, and ask for anyone above 18 who lives in the United States:

Quota Plan

However, if you look at the quota plan, there are 5 quota groups and 30 quota cells, and there are over 3000 ways a user can qualify (shown below).

As long as the user’s profile contains the targeting in the filters, and you won’t need to parse the quotaGroups and pass qcids.

"quotaGroups": [
              {
                "name": "CELL",
                "quotaCells": [
