As of 2018, we've allowed some customers early access to our upcoming participant pool. It allows you to upload a CSV, create filters and segments, send email distributions, schedule participants, pay them, but most importantly track all interactions with your participants across your whole team and all studies.

1b. Then you map columns to the rest of your pool. This means if you have 10 team members all uploading different spreadsheets with a "Number of Cats Owned" column, you can all set filters and see data across all sources.
