How to pull in data into a second survey without using contact list/emails: possible?

Hi,

I am running a longitudinal study and want to bring in text entry data from Survey 1 into Survey 2. I am aware of the "Pulling Data into a Second Survey" instructions on Qualtrics support, BUT these instructions seem to suggest that you MUST have set embedded data fields in Survey 1 first. I did not do this. I collected survey 1 data, and only now seek to bring some of survey 1 data into survey 2. Can I do this after having collected survey 1, and if yes, HOW might go about doing that?

The instructions I mentioned earlier refers to setting up a Contact list, but I am not contacting participants via Qualtrics, rather via another platform that is send my surveys out to participants. Can I pull in data from survey 1 into 2 WITHOUT using a contact list (emails)? Can I do it using a participant ID that I have for all participants??

Thank you for any suggestions you may have.

    Hi @LydonLab_RA did you use an anonymous link for Survey 1? Did you collect participant ID in the first survey so that you can link the responses to individuals? If so, you could just bring the survey 1 data in as embedded data. If you don't have any way to link Survey 1 responses to individuals, I'm not sure this is possible. In that case, the best I could come up with would be to link Survey 1 and Survey 2 with IP addresses, though that would be problematic if there's any way respondents could be sharing an IP address.
