Attention: Many links on this page link back to pages regarding standard Qualtrics surveys, not just EmployeeXM. 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 EmployeeXM project, feature functionality remains the same.
Qtip: This page describes functionality available to Engagement, Lifecycle, and Ad Hoc Employee Research projects. For more details on each, see Types of Employee Experience Projects.

About Question Options

In the question options menu, 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 the question options menu, either right-click on the question or select the question options icon to the left of any selected question.

The available question options in an EmployeeXM are mostly the same as the ones in the Survey Platform. For an overview on question options, visit the Survey Platform’s Question Options Overview support page.

Attention: Carry Forward is not available for EX projects since it is incompatible with dashboard scales.

 

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.

Display Logic works the exact same way in EmployeeXM as it does in the Survey Platform. For more information, visit the Survey Platform’s Display Logic 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 EmployeeXM 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 EmployeeXM 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.

Add Default Choices

You can use our Add 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.

Add Default Choices works the exact same way in EmployeeXM surveys as it does 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 EmployeeXM 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 EmployeeXM as it does in the Survey Platform. For more information, visit the Survey Platform’s Choice Randomization support page.
