    You should change each of the three possible IDs based on your need. Note that the PROLIFIC_ID in our example is the unique ID for each participant.

  4. Choose the method to confirm participants have to completed your study

    We recommend directing participants using an URL. Remember that URL because we will need it in our PCIbex code.

  5. Configure other options as well and then press save.

  6. Now go to the PCIbex platform and enter the following code (remember to change the links to your own links obtained in the previous steps):

          PennController.ResetPrefix(null) // Keep here
          Sequence("trials", "prolific-consent", "confirmation-prolific", SendResults())
          newTrial("prolific-consent",
          newHtml("prolific-consent.html").print()
          ,
          newButton("I consent").print().wait()
           )
    
         newTrial( "trials" ,
           newButton("This is a mock trial")
           .print()
           .wait()
         )
    
         newTrial( "confirmation-prolific" ,
             newText("<p>Thank you for your participation!</p>")
                 .center()
                 .print()
             ,
            // This is where you should put the link from the last step.
             newText("<p><a href='https://app.prolific.co/submissions/complete?cc=2RRF5B4I'>Click here to validate your submission</a></p>")
                 .center()
                 .print()
             ,
             newButton("void")
                 .wait()
         )
