About Exporting Response Data
The Export Data feature is used to download raw response data for use beyond the Qualtrics platform. Exported data files allow you to view how each participant answered each question in a survey, and also include survey metadata (e.g., Recorded Date, IP Address, etc.) and participant metadata.
Exporting and managing your response data in EmployeeXM is much the same as in the Survey Platform, and it happens in the Data & Analysis tab.
Among your export options, you can choose the file type of your download. The available file types for EmployeeXM data are:
- CSV (Comma Separated Values)
- TSV (Tab Separated Values)
- XML (Extensible Markup Language)
- SPSS (Statistical Analysis Package)
- HTML (Hypertext Markup Language)
- Fixed Field Text (Plain Text)
- Tableau (Integration with Tableau)
More details on these file formats can be found on the linked Survey Platform support pages.
In addition to choosing the file format of your data export, Qualtrics offers several export options for customizing your data output. Here, you can determine whether fields are in text or numerical format, whether to zip files, how hidden questions should be indicated, whether to include randomized data, and more. See Export Options on the Survey Platform support site for more details.
When adjusting export options, the data columns you export may vary based on what you choose. For a guide to what your data export means, navigate to the Understanding Your Response Data Set (EX) support page.
