Appending Unique IDs to survey link


We are trying to integrate the survey results of a MaxDiff with our customer database. We also have a customer panel where each customer has a unique ID key.

This is the first time we have run the lighthouse studio and we want to know does the system automatically generate a unique ID?

And if does, what's the best way to match the unique ID of the MaxDiff survey and the unique ID of our customer panel?

Any help would be appreciated

If I'm understanding your question correctly, the best way to handle this is to set up a password variable and paste all of your customer IDs in the Password data. Then use the one-click link so that each customer is sent a unique link which contains his/her ID number. (Or, what we do is create a somewhat random ID number for each record in our database. That way you are not including potentially confidential information, like an account number, in the link.)
