With PlaytestCloud's survey tools, you can create powerful surveys for every playtest, but using your Typeform and other survey tools together with playtests and surveys run on PlaytestCloud is possible as well. 

Using your own Typeform is available on special request and subject to a set-up fee.

Read on for the specific integration steps for using a Typeform survey on PlaytestCloud. Before proceeding we suggest that you read our short overview of all available survey integrations.

Typeform Integration Guide

Integrating your Typeform survey with PlaytestCloud is possible using Hidden Fields to store the demographics data that we pass, and Redirect on completion to automatically redirect players back to PlaytestCloud upon completion of your survey.

Step 1: Store Demographics Information

Add Hidden Fields to store data such as age, gender, and nationality of the player. See our general survey integration article for a list of all demographics information that we make available to your survey.

For example, to store the age, gender and first name of the players alongside their responses, create Hidden Fields for the following fields:

  • age
  • gender
  • first_name

How to add Hidden Fields on Typeform:

  1. Click on Add new question button
  2. Click on Hidden Fields


   3.  Type your Hidden Field name in the text box highlighted below

Tips: Hit space to add another Hidden Field

Step 2: Create Hidden Fields for participation_info and participation_id (required)

For PlaytestCloud to know which of our players have already completed your survey, we use a variable called participation_info. To group and filter the survey results according to the target audiences you've selected during your order, the variable participation_id is used. 

Do this: Use the Questions menu page from the Tool section of your survey to add the variables participation_info and participation_id

Step 3: Redirect Players to PlaytestCloud (required)

Upon finishing your survey, players need to be redirected back to PlaytestCloud so that we can track their progress.

In Typeform, this is done by setting up a Redirect on completion

  1. Click on the Settings icon at the bottom of the toolbar panel



2. Click on the Redirect on completion button

3. Paste this URL: https://www.playtestcloud.com/process_steps/external_survey_complete?participation_info=${e://Field/participation_info}

Once you have finished building your survey the final result you will share with PlaytestCloud should look like this:

https://gamestudio.typeform.com/to/aYKPdM?age=xxxxx&country=xxxxx&nationality=xxxxx&firstname=xxxxx&gender=xxxxx&hoursplayingperweek=xxxxx&bucketid=xxxxx&participationinfo=xxxxx

And that's it! Contact our project management team to set up your playtest, and you'll soon be collecting responses to your survey from our players.
