About the Qualtrics XM App

Qtip: The Qualtrics XM App is included with CX licenses. It is also available in some EX licenses. Talk to your Account Executive to see if you are eligible.

The Qualtrics XM App lets you and your colleagues view your dashboards on the go. With this app, you can view widgets, filter pages, switch between dashboards, and even check out your dashboard’s text analysis!

This app is available for both CX and EX dashboards.

Qtip: The Qualtrics XM App is for viewing dashboards, not editing them. To customize your dashboards, please log onto the Qualtrics site.
Qtip: The Qualtrics XM App is not the same as the offline app or the Follow Up App.
Qtip: For gov1 users, the Qualtrics XM App currently supports all functionality except push notifications. All other functionality, including access to the general notifications feed, are available to gov1 users.

Downloading the App

The minimum operating system requirements for the Qualtrics XM App are iOS 9.0+ or Android 5.0+. Any devices that run on these or later systems will be compatible with the app.

Downloading the App

You can find the app in the Android or Apple store. In the example steps below, we are downloading the app in the Apple store. However, the workflow for Android is extremely similar.

Qtip: Here is a link to the XM Mobile App in the Apple Store, and here is a link to it in Google Play.
  1. Using your smartphone, open either the Apple (iPhone) or Android app store.
  2. Search the app store for Qualtrics XM.
    searching for the app in the app store
  3. Once you’ve found the Qualtrics XM App, click Get on Apple or Install on Android to download the app for free.
Qtip: The Qualtrics XM App only works in its native app format, and is not compatible with any desktop browsers.

Logging into the App

Qtip: If the app won’t let you log in, even after opening and closing or updating the app, you might not have permission to use it. Talk to your Brand Administrator to find out if your organization has permission to use the Qualtrics XM App. (Note: This is different from the Offline App.)

The XM app offers a few quick and easy login options.

Standard Login

Upon opening the app, tap Username / Password to enter your normal Qualtrics username / password to log in.

SSO Login

If your organization uses SSO to log on (e.g., when logging into Qualtrics, you are redirected to your company’s login portal), you should tap Organization ID instead. See the Logging in with your Organization ID page for more details.

Qtip: If you don’t remember your organization ID, don’t worry! Click Forgot organization ID? to be emailed a link you can use to login instead.

Sign in Without a Password

You can log in without a password – instead, we’ll send a link to your email address that you can click to access your account. You can use this option regardless of whether you use SSO or a standard login!

  1. Tap Need help? We’ll send you an email link.
    the "Need help? We’ll send you an email link" button below the username and organization ID button

Logging in as a Gov1 User

Gov1 users can log into the XM App by first selecting I work for a US government agency. You can then log in using any of the methods described above – including standard login, single sign-on (SSO), and the alternative sign-in method that sends a link.

Attention: For gov1 users, the Qualtrics XM App currently supports all functionality except push notifications. All other functionality, including access to the general notifications feed, are available to gov1 users.

Unlocking the App

As an extra security measure, we may ask you to re-authenticate into the app. This generally happens when the app has been open in the background for about 60 seconds or more, or if you have just logged in.

If you have a PIN, Face ID, or Touch ID enabled on your phone, you will be asked to use this same authentication method to re-enter the app. This is to ensure that only you are logging onto your phone to see your data.

Although we do not advise disabling this setting, if you no longer want to use it, follow these steps:

  1. Tap the menu button in the top left corner.
    the menu button in the top left corner
  2. Select Settings.

  3. Disable Lock Screen.

Qtip: When you disable this setting, you will be logged out if you have the app closed or in the background for more than the minimum user session length, which is usually 60 minutes. (If you are an administrator interested in adjusting this length, see Minutes of inactivity until automatic logout.) This is done in order to ensure the highest security standards are met.

Enabling Dashboards for Mobile Viewing

Attention: Your dashboards will be Enabled in the Qualtrics XM App by default.

This section describes how you enable both CX dashboards and EX dashboards for the app.

    Qtip: This option is disabled in brands by default. To get it enabled, please reach out to Qualtrics Support.
Qtip: When you enable a dashboard for mobile viewing, you can make it so that a message will appear when users log onto the dashboard on desktop, encouraging them to try the mobile app. A user should only see this message two times, max. If you want this feature enabled for your brand, please reach out to Qualtrics Support. Please note that this feature cannot be enabled/disabled for individual users or groups. This message cannot be customized and appears as pictured.

Qtip: If the filter icon is grayed-out, that means the dashboard page does not yet have any filters on it. Remember, the dashboard’s creator or project administrators (CX) must add filters (CX | EX) on the desktop view before you will have filters to adjust.

You will see a list of possible filters you can adjust. Here, we have a filter for NPS Group and Response Date. Let’s apply a filter for Response Date. To apply a filter, tap the filter name.

In addition to a screenshot of the content, it will also send a link that allows the recipient to log in from a mobile browser.

Qtip: Users must already have an account to log in from the link.

Widget Compatibility

Not all widgets are compatible with mobile dashboards. This section will cover compatible vs. incompatible widgets.

Qtip: Widget descriptions, such as tooltips, are not compatible with the app.

CX Widget Compatibility

This section explains which CX widgets are compatible or incompatible with mobile viewing via the app.



EX Widget Compatibility

This section explains which EX widgets are compatible or incompatible with mobile viewing via the app. Action Planning pages are compatible with the Qualtrics XM App so long as the widgets on the page are compatible.



Mobile Dashboard Text iQ

Qtip: This functionality is only available for CX dashboards.

If you have Text iQ enabled for your dashboard, you can check this out on the Qualtrics XM App, too! Here, dashboard viewers with Text iQ access can see open text responses, their sentiment scores, and text topics.

Qtip: Remember that the Text iQ that opens in your dashboard is unique from the one that opens directly in a survey.

Navigating to Text iQ

To open Text iQ on your dashboard, select the Responses tab and then tap Text iQ.

Topic Widgets

Qtip: If you do not see a bubble widget and instead see the “No Topics” message, then you haven’t created topics in your CX Dashboard’s Text iQ yet. Log onto a desktop and perform text analysis. Don’t forget to apply changes when you’re finished!

When you enter Text iQ, you will see a bubble widget containing all your topics. The color borders represent the percentage of comments belonging to each type of sentiment: positive (green), negative (pink/red), neutral (gray), and mixed (yellow).

Click a bubble to narrow down the comments you see.

Qtip: Click the arrow in the upper-left to leave a topic and return to Text iQ home.

Comments and Sentiments

Scroll down the page to look at open text feedback. To the left of each piece of feedback will be a sentiment score.

Qtip: If there’s a grey dash instead of a sentiment score, that may mean Text iQ is still calculating sentiments. Give it time, or navigate to different pages to refresh your app. You can also refresh your app by clicking the three dots in the upper-right and selecting Refresh.

Viewing and Commenting on Responses

You can view responses on the XM app and keep track of the latest feedback that comes in. In this section, we’ll cover how to set this up in your dashboard, and then how to view these responses on the XM app.

Qtip: To view this feature, make sure you are updated to version 1.31.1 or higher.

Dashboard Setup

To make this feature available to your dashboard viewers, all you need to do is add a Response Ticker widget (CX | EX) to any of the dashboards you’ve made available in the app.

For guided setup, see the linked support pages.

Qtip: The response set’s name comes from the widget title. If you do not add a widget title, this will display to dashboard viewers as “Responses 1.”
Qtip: To allow dashboard viewers to see the full response or share the response from the mobile dashboard, you need to enable the full response records (CX | EX).

Viewing Responses

Responses are sorted from newest to oldest. The date is dependent on the date field used in the Response Ticker (CX | EX).

  1. In your dashboard, select Responses.
    navigating to the responses tab
  2. Tap Select a response list.
  3. Choose your desired response ticker widget from the list.

  6. If desired, click See all questions and answers to read the full response.
    viewing a full response in the app

    Qtip: The fields displayed are based on how the full response records were customized for the widget. Column configurations are not retained since they are not mobile-compatible, but section names and the list of selected fields will be the same.
  7. If there are any tickets associated with the response, then they will be listed here. Click the ticket to view it or make appropriate changes.

Ticketing in the XM App

To view a contact’s information, click View Customer Activity at the bottom of the ticket.

Using Ticket Templates

The XM app allows you to use saved library messages when you send emails from a ticket.

Qtip: Create your messages on the Qualtrics website and save them to your library before you try to use them in a ticket email.

  1. Find the ticket you want to respond to, and click into it.

  2. Select Send email.
    Image of email link at the bottom of a ticket
  3. Select Email template.
    In a follow up email on the xm app, the field for email template is below the subject line of the message
  4. Choose the library your message is saved in.
  5. Choose the message. Only messages set to the type “Ticket” will display here.
  6. If you have your message translated into multiple languages, choose the language you’d like to send the email in.
    Email template language appears right below email template field; send button is in upper-right of screen
  7. When you’re ready, send your message using the button in the top-right of the screen.

Qtip: Ticketing in XM App does not support 2-way emails, even if 2-way emailing is set up in the account that the XM App is linked to (emails always only send 1-way). If you have 2-way emails set up and would like the reply to go back to the ticket, we recommend that you send emails from the desktop version of Qualtrics.

App Settings

The app settings allows you to turn notifications for the app on and off. You can also log out here.

  1. Tap the menu button in the top left hand corner.
    the menu button in the top left
  2. Tap Settings.
    settings in the app menu
  3. Decide whether or not to enable Notifications. See Mobile App Notifications for more details about these notifications.
    choosing the settings to configure
  4. Determine if you want to use the same lock screen as your phone (PIN, Touch ID, Face ID) to authenticate. This happens when you first log in and after 60 seconds of inactivity when you try to use the app. You can also select Set Up Face ID if you have not already.
    Qtip: If you disable this setting, then after 60 seconds of inactivity, you will be logged out of the app instead of being asked to re-authenticate. This is to ensure that even users without the lock screen enabled have an added security measure.
Qtip: From the settings menu, you can also give feedback on the app or go your Support Portal to contact support.

Logging Out

To log out of the app:

  1. From the Settings menu, tap the three dots in the top right hand corner next to your name.
    logging out of the app
  2. Select Log Out.

App Language

Attention: The Qualtrics XM App is available for any language you can use in CX and EX dashboards. See the table on the Languages in Qualtrics support page for a full list of available languages.

The language of the app matches the language you have set inside your Qualtrics account. On desktop, go to your Account Settings to change the language. You may need to close the app and reopen it before you see your changes.

Qtip: Changing the language of the app changes the default text of the app. To change widget titles and field names, remember that a dashboard administrator needs to upload dashboard translations (CX | EX).
