Intro

Qualtrics software allows users to perform online data collection and analysis. Use Domo's Qualtrics connector to retrieve data about all of your surveys or about responses to a given survey. To learn more about the Qualtrics API, visit their website (https://api.qualtrics.com).

The Qualtrics connector is a "Cloud App" connector, meaning it retrieves data stored in the cloud. In the Data Center, you can access the connector page for this and other Cloud App connectors by clicking Cloud App in the toolbar at the top of the window.

You connect to your Qualtrics account in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the Qualtrics connector user interface. General information for adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information is discussed in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Primary Use Cases

This connector is appropriate for the following use cases:

  • Viewing trends in surveys created

  • Viewing the current number of active surveys

  • Looking for trends in survey responses

  • Looking for correlations in survey response percentage and the number of questions per survey

Primary Metrics

Prerequisites

To connect to your Qualtrics account and create a DataSet, you must have the following:

  • Your Qualtrics API token. You can find this logging into your Qualtrics account and navigating to Account Settings > Qualtrics IDs. If you do not have an API token, click Generate API Token.

  • Your Qualtrics API hostname. 

  • The username for your Qualtrics account (only required for 360 surveys and datasets created prior to April 2017)

Connecting to Your Qualtrics Account

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the Qualtrics Connector page. The components of the other panes in this page, Scheduling and Name & Describe Your DataSet, are universal across most connector types and are discussed in greater length in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Credentials Pane

This pane contains fields for entering credentials to connect to your Qualtrics account and choosing a survey type. The following table describes what is needed for each field:
