Qualtrics

Qualtrics is a powerful online survey tool for building, distributing, and analyzing surveys.

Exporting & Importing Survey Questions

Follow these steps to move surveys from your QTrial account to your MSU account. This only copies the survey, not the results. The results will remain in your QTrial account.

1. Log into your MSU Qualtrics account and remain logged in.

2. Log into your Qualtrics QTrial account. 

From your QTrial account, click edit next to the survey you want to copy over to your MSU account:

Next, select 'Advanced Options' from the right hand side of the screen and choose 'Export Survey':

You might be asked to save the file or it will save automatically depending on the browser you're using. It will be saved as a .qsf file format.

3. Go to your MSU Qualtrics account.

You will need to have an empty survey already created in this account so you can import your survey into it. Note: If you import the survey into an existing survey that has questions, your entire survey will be replaced with the imported one. Select 'Edit' next to the survey you will be importing into:

 

Next, select 'Advanced Options' from the right hand side of the screen and choose 'Import Survey':

Locate the downloaded survey from your QTrial account (remember, it will be a .qsf file format) and select 'Import'.
