To capture a reader's email address your version will need to request that readers provide their email address.
You can capture email addresses using the following methods:
- Basic Login
The Basic Login security rule creates a dialogue box that loads before the document can be viewed. It can be set to request an email address. Once the email address has been provided, the reader may view the version. The email address provided must be a valid email address and will be fed into the reports for that version .
- Reader Login
This more advanced security rule also loads before the document. It requires that the reader provides and verifies an active email address. The reader is also asked to create their own password. The email address that they have used will be fed into the reports for that version.
- Single sign-on
Single sign-on works by offloading the authentication of a reader to your single sign-on login screen, where the reader will enter their email address and password before redirecting them back to PageTiger. The email address that they have used will be fed into the reports for that version.
- Competition modules
Competition modules (survey, self-assessment quiz, multiple choice question, join our mailing list) all feature the option to include an email field. If this is supplied by the reader, their email address will be fed into the reporting. As the competition module can only be loaded partway through a visit, the email address will only be associated with interactions which take place after the reader has used the module. PageTiger does not retrospectively associate that email address with the visit.
