Intro

SurveyMonkey is a cloud-based company that provides free, customizable surveys, as well as a suite of paid back-end programs that include data analysis, sample selection, bias elimination, and data representation tools. Use Domo's SurveyMonkey connector to pull data about survey collectors, respondents, and responses for all surveys in your account or for a single survey. To learn more about the SurveyMonkey API, visit their website. (https://developer.surveymonkey.com/api/v3/).

The SurveyMonkey 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 SurveyMonkey account in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the SurveyMonkey 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.

Best Practices

Use this connector to pull historical data, then append new data via a recursive DataFlow. For more information, see Creating a Recursive/Snapshot Magic ETL DataFlow.

Prerequisites

To connect to your SurveyMonkey account and create a DataSet, you must have the username and password you use to log into your SurveyMonkey account.

Connecting to Your SurveyMonkey Account

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the SurveyMonkey 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

The Domo SurveyMonkey connector uses OAuth to connect, so there is no need to enter credentials within Domo. Click Connect (or select Add Account if you have existing SurveyMonkey accounts in Domo) to open the SurveyMonkey OAuth screen where you can enter your SurveyMonkey username and password. Once you have entered valid SurveyMonkey credentials, you can use the same account any time you go to create a new SurveyMonkey DataSet. You can manage connector accounts in the Accounts tab in the Data Center. For more information about this tab, see Managing User Accounts for Connectors.

Details Pane

This pane contains a primary Report menu, along with various other menus which may or may not appear depending on the report version you select.

Menu

Description

Report

Select a SurveyMonkey report. The following reports are available:

All Survey Details Returns details about a selected survey for a given time period.

Collector List 

Returns data about collectors for a selected survey for a given time period.

Responses 

Returns response data for a selected survey for a given time period.

Domo Sample Survey Data Returns sample survey data.

Survey List

All or New Data

Select how much data to retrieve. If you select All data, the report retrieves all data within the given Start Days and End Days range. If you select Since last successful run, the report retrieves all data since the last successful update. If this is a new DataSet, the run retrieves data for the number of days specified in Start Days.  

Start Days

Enter the number of the farthest day back that should be represented in the report. Combine with End Days to create a range of represented days. For example, if you entered 10 for Start Days and 5 for End Days, the report would contain data for 10 days ago up until 5 days ago. Use 0 for today.

End Days

Enter the number of the most recent day back that should be represented in the report. Combine with Start Days to create a range of represented days. For example, if you entered 10 for Start Days and 5 for End Days, the report would contain data for 10 days ago up until 5 days ago. Use 0 for today.

Survey 

Select the survey for which you want to retrieve data.
