About ServiceNow Events
The ServiceNow Event allows you to begin workflows in Qualtrics based on when a record is updated or inserted in ServiceNow. For example, an IT ticket is closed which updates a record in ServiceNow, beginning a workflow in Qualtrics to send a feedback survey to the employee who filed the original ticket.
