Why It's Important

Sharing apps with numerous people, each with varying access needs, can be challenging. Link sharing simplifies this process by allowing you to send a single link, ensuring all users can access and utilize the app according to their permissions. This can be particularly useful for scenarios where data collection, feedback, and participation are crucial, like event registrations, feedback forms, or online surveys.

Benefits of Link Sharing

  • Simplicity and Accessibility: Link sharing eliminates the need for users to sign up on Clappia, streamlining the process and making it accessible to anyone with the link.
  • Effortless Data Collection: By sharing a link, you empower users to submit data without navigating through multiple tabs or settings.
  • Streamlined Feedback: Gather feedback from customers, participants, or forum members directly through a shared link, eliminating the need for complex data collection methods.
  • External Sharing: Share the link with people outside your organization, expanding the reach of your app without requiring them to join Clappia.
