If you are part of a faculty, research group, or school at your university that has purchased a Group license on Call for participants, you can join this group and receive many of its benefits.
Why join a Group
There are many reasons why to join a group:
- You get access to the Group's study credits so you don't have to pay for your recruitment yourself.
- Added exposure to your study through the Group's page.
- The Group's logo will be shown on your study, adding credibility to it and giving your participants an elevated peace of mind that they are in good hands.
How to join
You may be invited to join the group by your research manager through a special link. In this case, simply click on the link and follow the instructions. You may also be automatically added to a Group, in which case, it will just show up on your dashboard.
If, however, you want to join a Group, you have two options: through the Group page, or when creating your study.
Joining through the Group page
To do this, find the Group you want to join on Call for Participants and click on "Join this group" button and provide the required details.
Depending on how the Group has been set up, this may require confirmation from the group admin. You will be notified if they approve or reject your join request.
Joining through study creation
Alternatively, you can simply add the Group's tag to your study when you are creating it. To do this, simply type the Group's name into the Keywords & Groups field while creating your Study Page.
Similarly, your request to join may require confirmation and in this case, the Group administrator may also want to approve your study. This means accepting the study into the group - you still have full control over everything else with regard to study.
Once you are a member of the Group, these tags will be added automatically to your study.
