Good news—our Document Signing feature automates collecting signatures from participants! No more chasing down NDA signatures or needless back and forth. Add a document when building your study, and approved participants sign your document as part of their scheduling flow. You get a signed copy emailed to you, meaning all participants who are confirmed for your study have signed your document and are ready to be interviewed.
If NDA's are part of your workflow, we encourage you to check out our Document Signing support page and blog post to learn more. It's sure to save you a lot of time and hassle and help you check a research to-do off your list!
If you're not using our Document Signing feature, here are a few recommendations.
This option is ideal if you need NDAs signed as part of the application process. Create a online document (we recommend DocuSign, PandaDoc, or SignEasy) with a shareable link. Add a screener question to your survey. Your screener question could look like this:
This is ideal if you need the NDA completed before the session, but not as part of the application process. There are a few options here:
Remember—we can't ensure participants sign your NDA before their session unless you use Document Signing!
If you can wait until the day of your study, ask participants to arrive 10-15 minutes early to their session. There are two ways to do this:
If you go with this option, be sure to get consent from participants that they would be willing to sign an NDA as part of their participation (see next section).
If an NDA is required, we recommend that you let participants know in case this changes their interest in the study. Here's an example question you can add to your screener survey:
"All participants selected for this study will be required to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) in order to participate. Based on this requirement, are you still interested in participating in the study, if selected?"
- Yes, and I agree to sign an NDA (Accept)
- No, I do not agree to sign an NDA (Reject)
