Programs are a means of organizing many different projects involved in a solution together in one container. The key difference between programs and folders is that programs come with an overview of the projects’ key metrics, detailed guidance, and a means of sharing the entire program with your colleagues.
Projects in a Program
All of the resources for your program are listed on the left side of the page.
Adding projects to a program
You can create brand new projects from scratch from right inside a program, or you can move existing projects into programs.
Get started by clicking Add project.
- Create new project: Create a new project. The steps will match creating something new from the Catalog page, although you may have fewer options available for the sorts of projects you can create.
- Add existing project: A new window will open where you can select from a list of your existing projects. Projects that are incompatible will be grayed out; an individual project cannot belong to more than one program at a time.
Removing projects from a program
You can remove a project from the program without deleting it entirely. Click the dots next to a project and click Remove. You may need to scroll to see this option. Once a project is removed from a program, it will appear on your Projects page.
Managing projects within a program
When you click the dots next to a project, you’ll see many of the same actions you’d see if you were accessing it on the Projects page. Actions vary based on the type of project. For more information, see the following resources.
The watchlist is a series of high level reports that help you gauge the status of your projects. There are three charts devoted to the number of responses that individual surveys collected over the last week and three devoted to clicks and impressions from Website / App Feedback intercepts.
A chart cannot contain data from more than one project at a time. Clicks and impressions are from individual intercepts, not creatives or entire projects.
To edit a chart, use the dots in the upper-right. You can then either:
- Change survey/intercept: Depending on the type of chart, you can change the project whose data is being displayed in it. You cannot choose a project that isn’t inside the program.
- Remove: Remove the chart from the watchlist. When you do this, it will be removed for everyone you’ve shared the program with.
Adding Charts Back to the Watchlist
To add a chart to the watchlist, click the plus sign ( + ).
You can only add the same type of chart you removed. You cannot have more than 3 survey charts and 3 intercept charts.
The guidance sidebar allows you to progress through the most vital steps of your program setup. It’s equipped with links straight to your projects and to support pages with additional details that can help you get started.
As you click through the steps, they will be marked as complete. Remember you can always use the project list to return to different parts of the program.
This sidebar also allows you to reconfigure the program – we do not recommend this unless you are comfortable losing data in order to start over.
Steps can be expanded or collapsed as needed.
Reconfiguring a Program
Once your program is created, you can individually edit the different parts of the program as needed. We recommend doing this instead if you’ve already starting collecting data or deployed code to your website. However, if you want to completely start over from scratch, follow these steps.
- Open Guidance.
- Expand Setup.
- Select Reconfigure.
- Read the warnings and select Yes, Reconfigure.
Sharing a Program
You can share your entire program with other members of your organization. Anyone you share the program with will have the same level of access you do – that means they will be able to edit all projects, edit the watchlist, delete projects from the program, delete the program, and invites other users to collaborate on the program. The only exception is that they will not have access to the guidance sidebar, so they can’t go through the steps or reconfigure the project.
- Select Share.
- Search for an existing user in your Qualtrics license. Select them.
- Click Save.
Once shared, the user can log into their account and either open the Shared folder or search the program by name to find it.
You can remove users you’ve collaborated with by opening the Share menu and using the dropdown to select Remove this user.
Qtip: You can also invite users to collaborate on individual projects within the program. You can do this by using the dropdown of actions next to each project in the project list. See Survey Collaboration vs. Website Feedback Collaboration.
For dashboards, you’ll click Manage administrators, not Collaborate.
Navigating to a Program
Programs can be found on the Projects page. You can search them by name and sort them into folders as you would individual projects.
When you click the actions dropdown, you can rename the program or delete it.
