At the moment, there isn't a way to directly recruit Reach participants within Maze. If you don't have the desired list of contacts within a third-party tool yet, you will need to manually source the emails and other relevant information.
This article walks you through the process of using a Maze survey for manually collecting email addresses.
1. Collect the email addresses
Create a Maze where you qualify the potential participants and collect their email addresses.
To create this maze:
- First question: If needed, add a Yes/No Question block to assess whether the participant would like to be contacted for testing.
- Add a condition to the first question: If the participant responds 'Yes', move to the next question. If the participant responds 'No', move to the Thank You screen (i.e. the end of the maze).
- Second question: Add an Open Question block to source the email addresses. In the question type, choose 'Email'.
2. Send out your maze
Once the maze is ready, you can copy the share URL and distribute it to the group from whom you'd like to gather the emails (e.g. internally with your team, as a link on your website, etc.)
3. Export your maze results
Once people have started replying to the survey, you can export the results at any time:
- Open the maze containing the survey:
- Open the Results dashboard, and select the open question block collecting the email addresses.
- Click the More (•••) menu, and select Export as CSV file.
4. Clean up the CSV file
- Open the exported CSV file.
- Rename the relevant columns to use a more descriptive name (e.g. change the "value" column to "email").
- Remove all the columns that you don't need to include in your Reach database (e.g. "blockId", "title").
5. Import your CSV file into your Reach database
Once you have a clean CSV file with the contacts you've manually sourced using Maze, you're ready to import it into Reach.
