The tasks below are listed on the right hand side of every survey you create. Use these icons to quickly access the main areas of the Qualtrics survey tool.
Edit: Jumps to the Edit Survey tab of the specific survey selected.
Results: Jumps to the View Results tab of the specific survey selected.
Send: Jumps to the Distribute Survey tab of the specific survey selected.
View: Functions the same as the Preview Survey link found on the Edit Survey and Distribute Survey tabs.
Collaborate: Enables you to give permissions to and share a survey with another Qualtrics user so they can view, edit, distribute, and analyze data in your survey. If there isn’t an existing user account for the person you want to collaborate with, then the tool will send an email and create a trial user account for them. You can read more about collaboration later on in the chapter.
Edit: Enables you to copy a survey, and even send the copy to another user account. When a copy is made, it becomes a completely separate survey with its own survey link. Survey data is not copied along with the survey.
Translate: Jumps to the Translate Survey feature in the Edit Survey tab.
Delete: Displays a dialog box to confirm deletion. All data is deleted with the survey so make sure you really want to do this. First, download a copy of your data and a copy of your survey. Qualtrics Survey Format, or .qsf, is the provided format when downloading your survey. A survey stored in .qsf format can be uploaded and reinstalled into Qualtrics. A .qsf, however, can only be read by Qualtrics.

To select a survey to edit, click on the Survey Name on the "My Surveys" page, click on the "Edit" icon in the tasks column next to the Survey Name, or click on the "Edit Survey" tab.
"Edit Survey" Tab:
1. Open up your survey and select 'Create New Question' from the 'Default Question Block':
Questions are numbered in the ordered they are created, not the order they appear in the survey. Renumber your questions at any time using the Auto-Number Questions feature.
2. A multiple choice question will be created by default. To change the question type, click "Change Question Type" drop-down and then select the question type. View the Question Types Guide for more information on each of the question types.
Changing an item type after you've started collecting data will invalidate previous responses to that question.
Add Page Break allows you to break up a block of questions into separate pages. This is similar to inserting a break into a Word document. It’s great to use this option when you have a lengthy block of questions. It allows you to keep your survey in screen-sized chunks so that the participant does not become overwhelmed by having to scroll through a long screen of questions.
To use Add Page Break:
