User Attributes

User Attributes

Basic Features
Apps can be tailored to individual users, through 'Attributes'. Attributes are special blocks that can be used to hold information specific to a user. These can be created in the 'User Attributes' section. Take the selection of attributes below: Each attribute type has its own unique appearance that shows where they can fit into the block specification. In order to put real values into these attributes, there are survey question types corresponding to each attribute type, so that the answers to survey questions can be stored as attribute values. For example, the user's answer to a number question  can be saved into a Number attribute:  Locations Location attributes are round and purple, and can be dragged into Location triggers or Location expressions like so.

Prompts & Messages

Basic Features
Various actions in Jeeves allow in-app prompts or surveys to be sent to the user. SMS messages can also be sent to external contacts. The 'send prompt' action allows researchers to specify a notification message to send to a user when a trigger is fired.   Similarly, the 'send survey'  action allows a previously designed survey to be sent to a user in a notification.     Finally, the 'send SMS' action can be used to send text messages to contacts. This can be used to, for example, send messages to emergency contacts if a user records data that suggests they are in danger. This short video demonstrates how these actions appear on the user's phone. [field name=iframe]

Survey Design

Survey Design

Basic Features
Surveys are used to collect data from users about their current situation, such as physical symptoms, emotions, and various experiences through the day. Different question types allow the user to enter free text, numbers, or true/false values. Additionally, users can select one or many items for a list, or items on a sliding Likert scale. Questions also exist to allow complex data types, including dates,times and locations that can be used to personalise the app experience. If you have created user attributes, then you can store the answers to certain questions in these attributes. This allows an application to be tailored to the user, and is explained in the Attributes section of the guide. Some question types (such as Likert scale questions and multi-choice questions) require you to fill in…
