A project is the vehicle that lets you invite participants, schedule delivery of surveys to them, and report data collected in the surveys. An organization can have multiple projects, and surveys can be re-used among them freely.
Create a Project
Once you've created an organization, the "Home" dashboard will prompt you to create a project.
Enter a project name and select "Add Project." This will bring up the project editor.
There are a host of project options available. At minimum, you must enter the following:
- Display Name - Enter a name that will be displayed to participants.
- Consent Survey - Select the consent survey that informs (and optionally records consent for) how participant data will be collected and used.
- Enable Platforms - Select which platforms the project will be available on.
Click "Save" at the botton when you've entered all the project information.
From the project screen, you can schedule the delivery of surveys.
There's no need to schedule the consent survey; it is presented to the user before they enroll in the project.
For the sample sleep project, you can set it up to deliver the sleep time survey once a week and give them five days to complete the survey. Make the start date tomorrow.
Select Sensor Data
When creating a project, you have the option of collecting passive sensor data from participants who join your projects.
The availability of sensor data depends on what device the participant is using, and requires that the participant agree to share the data with the MyDataHelps app.
For the sample sleep projects, you might be interested in collecting the participant's physical activity (steps and distance) or sleep analysis from Apple Health.
MyDataHelps Designer allows custom notifications to be sent to participants via SMS/text, email, or the MyDataHelps app (a "push notification"). You may create any number of custom notifications for your organization, share them across all your projects, and make them available in multiple languages.
You can create notifications by clicking "Notifications" along the top navigation bar. There you can define a notification's type (SMS/text, email, or push) and content. Once your notifications are created, you will work with the MyDataHelps Designer team to set up triggers for your notifications.
