Study Settings: Configuration

The Configuration section of Study Settings allows you to control elements of the Study visible to participants and Administrators.

Study Features

You can enable / disable, re-arrange or re-label the core components of your Recollective Study (i.e. Home, Activities, Discussions, Summary).

Use the switches to enable / disable any of the featured tabs you don’t plan on using. To reorder the pages, simply drag and drop them in the order you’d like them to appear. To re-label the pages, press the the pencil icon, type in the new name, press Done and then Save your changes.

Primary Study Tab

This controls which tab / page you’ll arrive on as soon as you enter the Study (this applies to both participants and Admins). For example, setting it to Activities will force participants to navigate to the Activities page instead of the Home page (default) or Summary area. 

Activity Guidance

Participants will receive a banner notification that directs them to the next available action on the site. You can control whether it suggests them to start the next Activity or returns them to the Activities page altogether.


These options allow you to control where Topics are announced and whether participants can start their own within the Discussions tab / area of your Study.


This area controls the "Like" and "Dislike" rating capabilities within the various response and reply streams. These tools are most effective when used in Studies that rely on interaction and socialization amongst participants.

On the other hand, if you’re planning on running a private Study with no interaction amongst participants, it may be advisable to remove the ratings option altogether.


A site can enable one of many supported languages. A single language is set as the default language for the site but a study can override this default via the Default Language setting. If a desired language is missing from the dropdown list, enable it via the Site Administration area under Basic Settings.

Multilingual Support

In addition to being able to run multiple languages and markets as separate Studies, Recollective has the capability to manage multiple languages within a single Study space

If your goal is to analyze data from multiple languages in a single Study, this option may suit your needs. Due to the complex nature of how this feature functions, please contact us in order to receive more details on how to enable and use it effectively.

Time Zone

When running projects that are in separate time zones to yourself and your site, you can use the Customize time zone control from this menu. Customizing a Study's time zone will automatically default your Activities and Discussion Topic time zones when configuring your Study content to save you this additional step during setup.
