Smiley Link is an additional way for people to share their feedback for a specific location in a “touchless” manner by using their mobile phones.
Smiley Link uses QR codes and short URLs as the way to access a survey on a Smiley Terminal or Smiley Touch. What’s more, it creates additional dimensions for when, where, and how people can share their feedback – and it helps you gain additional insights to use in your work to improve performance. The QR code and/or the URL can be added to emails, SMSs, physical or digital receipts, or to any communication material. This makes it possible for people to respond at any place, anytime.
How to take Smiley Link into use
In HappyOrNot Reporting, go to the Analytics tab and select a specific experience point. You must do this since the Smiley Link information is unique for each Smileys product.
Select Export and Smiley Link. Note: If the option is greyed out, make sure that you’re looking at a single experience point rather than a group.
Option 1: Print the sheet in the size you like (4 formats). If you want to add your own logo to the question sheet, you can find editable templates in the Customer Community (sign in with your HappyOrNot Reporting credentials).
Option 2: Copy the QR code and/or the URL/link information and use for your customer emails, SMS-messages, print receipts etc.
The HappyOrNot email reports for a specific Smiley Touch or Smiley Terminal will also include a call-to-action. Clicking it will automatically generate a new printable question sheet with the unique Smiley Link. This can also be printed and displayed alongside, or, if temporarily needed, in replacement of, the Smiley products, and also as posters independently throughout the location.
Tip! By activating Smiley Link, you can use follow-ups and collect open feedback also with a Smiley Terminal. To learn how to add follow-ups, read Create a Survey for Smiley Touch.
For Smiley Touches, administrators can also switch to Smiley Link mode on the screen, in which case the screen will show the QR code and a short URL instead of the smileys. To show the QR code on the screen your Smiley Touches, change the Smiley Touch settings in Admin > Experience points.
How it works
- The QR code is either scanned or the URL is typed to access the survey via a mobile phone.
- The Smileys and survey question appears, and the user selects the Smiley that represents their experience.
- The option to add open text feedback appears, where users can type comments and hit send.
Feedback data given via the Smiley Link is compiled together with the feedback data given via the relevant Smiley Terminal / Smiley Touch product, and aggregated in HappyOrNot Reporting.
