Overall Satisfaction with Qualtrics

We use Qualtrics to design surveys across various businesses to gain feedback from Sales and Partners, to know their concerns, satisfaction and their priority areas. And results from these surveys help management make decisions and prioritize actions.
  • Qualtrics is user friendly, anyone can start using this tool without prior training
  • Survey Flow helps us managing the overall flow of the survey
  • Sending Invites to participants is quite easy and simple in Qualtrics
  • Some of the basic question set ups are missing, especially matrix/grid questions are very limited. Placing validations in those questions is again a BIG task, it is super tedious to handle matrix questions in Qualtrics
  • Translations: - Translating/Overlaying your surveys is going to be BIG task, their translator module is terrible
  • Reporting again is limited
ConfirmIT is far better than Qualtrics, however, bit costly when compared to Qualtrics
This tool is better for smaller surveys, when it comes to designing bigger surveys it becomes difficult due to its limitations with Matrix questions and their validation. Placing JavaScript/jQuery is also very difficult and limited as compared to other tools like ConfirmIT, VOVICI.

Using Qualtrics

20 - Marketing and Operations
  • Employee Satisfaction Survey which is review by our management to bring improvement in tools, process and resorces
  • Concept testing for new products and solutions
  • Ad-hoc/Pulse survey to record the pulse of the participants for any changes in the organization
  • I don't see Qualtrics as a tool to be used in the future by our organization
There are many issues with this tools....and poor functionality...

Qualtrics Implementation

My experience is not so good with Qualtrics, they are not very helpful and most of the time I get scripted answers
Good followup
Kept well informed
No escalation required
Support understands my problem
Slow Resolution
Less knowledgeable
Difficult to get immediate help
Support doesn't seem to care
No - I am not happy with the support and Qualtrics as a tool, however, i am forced to use this tool as my organization has got licences
Yes - Yes, it got resolved in timely fashion
No, there is NO time when I got exceptional support from the Qualtrics support team

Using Qualtrics

There are many things which go wrong when survey is live, if you change some setting in the survey...it automatically gets reflected in the Live link. One of our survey was live and setting got changed to "Do not record personal information and remove associate panel information" and we lost close to 200 participants background information ....the issue is still under investigation as to how/who made this change, as only I had the access to the survey and I am 100% confident I didn't change anything in the survey once it went Live.
When I contacted support if they have any information on who made the change on the survey, they mentioned they don't keep this information on their server. I was Shocked, one can go and change anything in the active survey and no information is recorded who made that change on the server.
God Save our Active surveys on Qualtrics :(
