Attention: Many links on this page link back to pages regarding standard Qualtrics surveys, not just 360 surveys. Detailed below are the differences you will need to be aware of on each page. While some content may look slightly different when creating your 360 survey, feature functionality remains the same.

About Question Behavior

In the question behavior section of the survey builder, you can perform tasks such as randomizing answer choices, adding conditions to control who will see your question, and customizing other question aspects. To access these options, either right-click on the question or navigate to the question behavior section on the left hand side of the survey builder.

The available options in an 360 survey are the same as the ones in the Survey Platform. For an overview of, visit the Survey Platform’s question behavior support page.

Display Logic

You can use display logic to create a survey that is customized to each participant. When a specific question or answer choice pertains only to certain participants, you can set display logic on it so that it shows conditionally, based on previous information. Through display logic, you can create surveys that dynamically adapt to your participants’ answers.

When using display logic in 360 surveys, you will have three additional pieces of data that you can build your conditions off of:

  • Evaluator’s Relationship: Allows you to build logic off of the relationship that the evaluator (the individual who is completing the survey) has with the subject of the survey.
    Qtip: If an individual takes a survey about his or her self, the Evaluator’s Relationship would then be “Self.”
  • Subject’s Metadata: Allows you to build logic off of the metadata that the subject of the survey is associated with in the Participants tab.
  • Evaluator’s Metadata: Allows you to build logic off of the metadata that the evaluator is associated with in the Participants tab.

Otherwise, display logic works the exact same way in 360 surveys as it does in the Survey Platform. For more information, visit the Survey Platform’s display logic support page.

Carry Forward Choices

Carry forward allows you to copy specific answer choices from one question and bring them into a future question in your survey. For instance, you can first show your participants a question that asks which products they have bought from your company in the last six months. You can then carry forward the choices they selected into the next question and ask the participants to rank their preference from those previously selected choices only.

Carry forward choices works the exact same way in 360 surveys as it does in the Survey Platform. For more information, visit the Survey Platform’s carry forward choices support page.

Skip Logic

Skip logic allows you to send participants to a future point in the survey based on how they answer a question. For instance, if a participant indicates that they don’t agree to your survey’s consent form, they could immediately be skipped to the end of the survey.

Skip logic works the exact same way in 360 surveys as it does in the Survey Platform. For more information, visit the Survey Platform’s skip logic support page.

Add JavaScript

JavaScript is a programming language that enables you to accomplish more advanced functionality in your survey than would otherwise be available. For example, you can change the size of a question text box, create a custom question type, and much more.

Add JavaScript works the exact same way in 360 surveys as it does in the Survey Platform. For more information, visit the Survey Platform’s add JavaScript support page.

Attention: Custom coding features are provided as-is and may require programming knowledge to implement. Our support team does not offer assistance or consultation on custom coding. You can always try asking our community of dedicated users instead. If you’d like to know more about our custom coding services, please contact your Qualtrics Account Executive.

Default Choices

You can use our default choices feature to pre-populate answer choices within a question when the participant opens the survey. This can be useful in situations when you ask participants to update previously collected data, such as mailing address, email, name, etc.

Default Choices work the exact same way in 360 surveys as they do in the Survey Platform. For more information, visit the Survey Platform’s add default choices support page.

Recode Values

When you create a question, a recode value and a variable name are automatically assigned to each answer choice. The recode value is the numeric value of a choice, whereas the variable name is the name of the choice when you export in choice text format. These recode values and variable names are recorded in the collected dataset and you can modify them to align with your desired statistical analysis.

Recode values work the exact same way in 360 surveys as they do in the Survey Platform. For more information, visit the Survey Platform’s recode values support page.

Choice Randomization

Randomization is an important research technique used to help overcome the bias that can result from the order items are presented in. With Qualtrics, you can randomize various elements, including answer choices.

Choice randomization works the exact same way in 360 surveys as it does in the Survey Platform. For more information, visit the Survey Platform’s choice randomization support page.
