We do our best to match you with studies that we think will be a fit for you based on your profile. However, you may come across studies that don't interest you. Our team is working on bettering our study matching, and we're excited to continue to improve this experience.

How to better tailor studies to you

In study notification emails

Study notification emails now include an "I'm not interested in this study" button. If you click that button, we won't email you about that study again. If you accidentally select "I'm not interested in this study", or reconsider and DO want to apply to that study, simply navigate back to the notification email and select "Interested? Start screener here!".

We hope that helps minimize emails about studies that aren't a good fit. We'll also use this information to better pair you with studies in the future. Win win!

On the Browse page

Studies on the Browse Active Studies page, when signed in, are matched to your demographics and location, but are not narrowed by job title, industry, interest or hobbies, etc. Studies shown are sorted by most open spots, which means you may see studies on the main page of Browse that you've seen before. Make sure to scroll down and click "Load More" to ensure you're seeing ALL available studies. New studies may be below the "Load More".

After narrowing by study type and format, if you still see studies that aren't of interest, use the trash can icon to hide studies. Hidden studies are stored in your browser, so please be aware if you clear your cookies or switch browsers, your hidden studies may pop back up.

Using the trash can icon is a great way to narrow down Browse so when you visit that page to check for new studies, you're seeing a more tailored list of studies.

We hope in the future to add additional filters, sorting options, and more so this page is even easier to use.
