External Study Credit Granting with Qualtrics

Here are the basic steps, which are subject to change (since the product is controlled by Qualtrics):

  1. On your Sona Systems site, change the Study URL so it includes ?id=%SURVEY_CODE% in the URL. So if the Qualtrics URL (Anonymous Survey Link) is:
    then change it to (Note: "id" must be in lower-case)

    Note: If your Qualtrics URL has "/SE/" in it, like then this is the old style of Qualtrics URL. You can either find the new style of URL for Anonymous Link, or instead of adding ?id=%SURVEY_CODE% change it to &id=%SURVEY_CODE% (change the ? to &).

  2. Having completed Step 1, the Study Information on your Sona Systems site now displays a URL labeled "Qualtrics Redirect to a URL". In Qualtrics, configure the survey to accept the survey code number, as an embedded data field named "id". Remember to use lower-case as this is case-sensitive. To do this, go to Survey Flow | Add a New Element | Embedded Data and type in "id" and save your changes.

  3. In Qualtrics, configure the Survey Options | Survey Termination | Redirect to a Full URL option, and provide the Qualtrics Redirect to a URL value from your Sona Systems site. (You may simply copy and paste the unaltered value from Sona into Qualtrics).

    Note: If you have an End of Survey element set up in Survey Flow, you will need to add the URL there also. Go to Survey Flow | End of Survey | Customize and enter the Qualtrics Redirect URL value from the system into the Redirect to a URL field in Qualtrics.
