How to integrate Conjoint.ly with a survey tool


You can use Conjoint.ly in conjunction with a different survey tool. Tools like Decipher, SurveyMonkey, and Qualtrics allow you to redirect users in the middle of a survey on their platform to Conjoint.ly. For example:

  • Respondents start answering a survey on your survey platform,
  • At some point, they are redirected to Conjoint.ly,
  • They complete the experiment on Conjoint.ly,
  • (Optionally) they are then redirected back to the other survey platform and complete the survey there.

To make it work smoothly, you need to ensure the IDs and other respondent variables travel to Conjoint.ly and back to your survey platform. Here is how to make it work:

  1. Make sure you have a shareable link enabled on Conjoint.ly. For example, you will see: https://run.conjoint.ly/study/970/7txubkovie.

  2. Take note of what variables your survey platform wants to pass on to Conjoint.ly and receive back to match the respondents to their respective survey flow. For example, consider the following variables: id and gender.

  3. Insert a customised Conjoint.ly shareable link back to your survey platform. Refer to the instructions from your survey platform about how they prefer to pass on the data to us (also know as “GET variables”). For example, https://run.conjoint.ly/study/970/7txubkovie?id=[id]&gender=[gender].

  4. Set up redirect links on Conjoint.ly. Make sure to put each variable in square brackets. For example, http://another.survey.platform/complete?id=[id]&gender=[gender] and http://another.survey.platform/screenout?id=[id]&gender=[gender]. If you would like the other survey platform to record respondent IDs assigned by Conjoint.ly, you can add [Conjoint.ly-ID] into the redirect URL (for example, http://another.survey.platform/survey?ConjointLyID=[Conjoint.ly-ID]).

  5. Done! You are ready to launch the experiment and set up the survey on your other survey platform.

Note that if a particular variable is not passed to Conjoint.ly, respondents will still be redirected back to the other survey platform. For example, if id is 12345, but gender is omitted (like here), respondents will be sent to the following address: http://another.survey.platform/complete?id=12345&gender=undefined.

Redirects from and back to Qualtrics

Qualtrics has a compatible method for redirecting to and from studies. Please refer to Qualtrics docs for details. Particularly, if you want to save Qualtrics ID to Conjoint.ly and pass it back to Qualtrics, you will need to:

  1. In Qualtrics (to redirect to Conjoint.ly), specify https://run.conjoint.ly/study/970/7txubkovie?IDpassedFromQualtrics=${e://Field/ParticipantID}.

  2. In Conjoint.ly (to redirect back to Qualtrics), specify http://survey.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SID=SV_1234?incomingQualtricsID=[IDpassedFromQualtrics].

Redirects to and from SurveyMonkey

Please refer to SurveyMonkey docs for information on passing values from Conjoint.ly to SurveyMonkey.

You can also pass respondents from SurveyMonkey to Conjoint.ly, but SurveyMonkey currently appears unable to send their IDs to Conjoint.ly (refer to the “On, show a custom end page” option in the SurveyMonkey docs for latest information). If you need to match respondents between SurveyMonkey and Conjoint.ly to analyse segments or individual-level preferences, you might be able to do so by IP and/or timestamp.

Redirects from SurveyGizmo

Please refer to SurveyGizmo docs for information on passing values from SurveyGizmo to Conjoint.ly. With SurveyGizmo, there is no way for respondents to return to the same survey. Instead, if you want respondents to come back to SurveyGizmo, you can redirect them to a different survey. SurveyGizmo supports GET variables in a similar fashion to Conjoint.ly.
