Preview a Study

To preview the media-flow and instructions of a study, open the study and then click the ‘Media-Flow’ tab. Then click the ‘Preview’ button.

Preview will open a new window and start the viewing process at the viewer HTML instructions. You need to click the “Got it” button to continue, as in a real viewing. Unlike a real viewing, you don’t need to complete the calibration process.

After reading the instructions you’ll see your media items in the same way that they are presented during viewings. You’ll be able to scroll and click just like a normal viewer.

Note that the randomization and clickable hotspots will also work as in a real viewing. We will randomly pick from the media options defined in your workflow. Therefore, you might need to preview several times to explore all the paths you have defined through your media items.

Previews are not recorded as normal views.

No viewing credits are deducted for previews.

You can share previews with other people who are not logged into EyesDecide. Note that the preview feature is protected by the same security mechanisms as normal viewing – you either need to be logged in as the study creator, or have a valid viewing URL to be able to preview the study.

Make sure you are happy with your study before you Launch it, because you won’t be able to edit it after Launch.
