Tips: focus group member details

This is just a small detail but something we’ve had positive comments on. When we finish recruiting groups, we’ll send you a spreadsheet with the first name of each participant and their answers to the recruitment questions. Two advantages:


  • you can see in advance the mix of people attending (and un-invite some and re-recruit if necessary)
  • when viewing the groups you can refer to the document if you need to better understand where a particular person is coming from (i.e. some of the answers to the screening questions may help to explain a participants opinions)


The document will just have the person’s first name so there are no confidentiality issues.
