By default, an optimal blend of panels is automatically selected for your target group.
You have the possibility to manually select panels. Go to the "Supply" pane and select the option "Insights Exchange", this will give you access to the panels and push-suppliers available for your target group.
The available panels are in a light blue box, they are invitation based, email invitations are sent to panelists to take part in a certain project (1).
Push Supply panels
'Push' is a Cint proprietary term that refers to panels not fully integrated into Insights Exchange , but connected through API. 'Push' is not 'river' sample.(2).
Push Supply feasibility is estimated based on all the other panels you or the system selected. You can order projects with pure Push Supply, or just regular panels or a blend.
Panels marked with a padlock are locked and require Cint to obtain permission to run your study on their panelists crowd. If the panel owners decline, then those completes will not be possible to obtain (3).
Temporarily unavailable panels
Panels marked with the decline sign do not allow your current TG specifications and cannot be used (for example your study is too long for what the panel owner has decided to allow)(4).
Each panel shows the estimated number of completes available, based on your target group specifications and the sample availability at that point in time.
Feasibility of individual panels vs total feasibility
When estimating feasible number of completes, per panel, the system takes into account each panelist. When doing feasibility for the whole target group, the system will remove duplicates. So if a panelist is registered in at least two panels, he will be counted in each of these panel's individual feasibility, but counted only once as viable for the whole target group. When panelists are registered in multiple panels or when using Push Suppliers , the sum of individual panels' feasible number of completes can differ from the total target group feasibility, due to the removal of duplicates but also due to how Push Supply feasibility works.
Panel specific profiling
If you want to use panel specific profiling, select the panel and go back to the profiling pane. There, you can enable to see the panel specific profiling.
