✉️ Q3 2020 | Qualtrics XM Community Newsletter

LaurenK Seattle, WA, USA Administrator

We’ve been keeping busy over here at the Q to make sure we provide you the best community experience possible. In this quarter’s newsletter, we cover a ton of great things happening on the community like popular discussions, upcoming events, a member spotlight, and trending product ideas.

Popular Discussions

We’re always blown away with the ingenious solutions our members come up with. Below are a few of the best discussions happening right now in the community!

  • Developer Corner
    • Customizing Image on Graphic Slider | The graphic slider is a great question type to use when you want respondents to give a rating on a set scale. This solution by @TomG and @Nami walks you through using custom images in your graphic sliders. 
    • Adding a Time Picker with AM / PM Format | Another great solution provided by @rondev that shows how to add a time picker question in the format of a 12 hour clock with the ability for the participant to select either AM or PM.
  • XM Best Practices and Discussions
    • PII & Longitudinal Study Best Practices | When running an anonymous longitudinal study, it’s important to maintain your respondent’s anonymity while still linking responses submitted by the same person. Check out this thread with some tips from @bstrahin on how to run this type of program with a simple Qualtrics setup. 
    • Text iQ & CX Dashboards Examples | Robust text analysis is crucial for gaining insights into your respondents’ thoughts and sentiments, and visualizing your text data in an effective way is equally as important as the data itself. Take a look at @NPSadmin2020’s method for analyzing text data in a CX dashboard, and be sure to contribute your own examples.

Lastly, a huge shoutout to @bstrahin and @peeyushbansal, who have reached the top rank in our Rank & Reward program - they are now Wizards.
