Screening Questions vs. Profile Fields
The screening questions you can ask before people join a Study are actually Profile Fields. They are simply fields deemed to be In Study.
Please note that from a Study space, only Analysts and the relevant Moderators will be able to see the custom fields and data tied to the Study participants (they are not visible to Clients).
Screening questions are only one application of Profile Fields as you can also add them to the Registration Form (i.e. where they register their account and set their password) which comprises all Studies, and / or allow them to be edited from a participant's Account Settings page.
It is also possible to upload profile metadata via Bulk Import and keep the data purely for internal use. These fields are categorized as Hidden when browsing the Panelist Profiling fields.
If a Profile Field is housing data that constitutes personally identifiable information (PII) - this is any data that could potentially identify a specific individual - there is a checkbox option to identify the field as such.
By selecting the May contain personal identifiable information (PII) option, the system will include this field as part of the personal data removal when actioned
It's important to note that profile fields are included within certain transcripts and exports. You should only provide your Clients with permission to generate transcripts and exports if you are okay with them having access to this information.
