What are the implications of choosing to allow participants to access activities using an alias?

A: Firstly, the Participant experience will be a little different. If a participant logs in to an activity and then later closes their browser, on re-entering the activity they may not be recognised as the same participant and therefore the total participant count will increase (this is dependant on the participant's device).

Secondly, there are significant implications for data collected. Obviously, there is no explicit way of linking an alias to a real person. Xorro-Q treats an alias as specific to an activity, so there is no linking of aliases across activities. Lastly, since an alias is not identified as a member of a group, alias logins cannot affect group engagement data.
