While setting up your screener survey, you can also specify the match criteria for each option in a question.

Here is a breakdown of the match criteria available with each question and what they mean:

Multiple choice (choose one answer)

There are two options available:

  • Accept: Selecting this option does not negatively affect the player

  • Reject: Selecting this option disqualifies the player from your playtest

Checkboxes (choose many answers)

There are three options available:

  • May select: Selecting this option does not negatively affect the player

  • Must select: The player has to select this option to qualify for the playtest. If there are multiple Must select options in a question, the player has to select ALL the Must select options to qualify for the playtest.

  • Reject: Selecting this option disqualifies the player from your playtest

If you want players to pick any one of many options to qualify -

  • Set all the acceptable options to May select

  • Set all the options players should not select as Reject

  • Set no options to Must select

  • If you want to add filler options you have to decide if a player that selects only the filler option should be disqualified. If they should be disqualified, set the option to Reject. If selecting only the filler option should let the player continue with the screener, then set the option to May select.

Final qualify/disqualify decision:

Players that answer the screener without selecting a Reject option AND selecting all Must select options will be automatically invited to the playtest if you have selected Automatic invites. If you had selected Manual invites, you will see a match score along with each player's answers that tells you how many questions with match criteria the player answered correctly.
