Survey Monkey

The Qlik Survey Monkey Connector uses the SurveyMonkey API to fetch data about collector types or survey respondents.

Note: The built-in web connectors are only available on Qlik Sense Cloud with a Cloud Business subscription.

Ways to access your data

To access your Survey Monkey data, you will need to authenticate the connector with your Survey Monkey account credentials. After you create a connection and select Survey Monkey as your data source, you will be redirected to a Survey Monkey login page to retrieve your authentication token.

Creating a connection and selecting data

Loading data from tables

After you authenticate the connector with your account credentials, use the tables to fetch your data. Some tables are preconfigured to access a specific set of data while others let you create custom queries. The table below outlines some of the use cases for some of the tables that are available.

Table Description
GetSurveyList Use this table to fetch the list of surveys associated with your account. The list displays the survey IDs which are needed to run the other tables.
GetRespondentList Use this table to fetch the list of respondent IDs for a collector list. This list displays the respondent IDs which are needed to run other tables.
GetResponses Use this table to fetch the list of responses for a survey.

To select and load data from a table, enter the required table parameters and click Preview data. Required parameters are marked with an asterisk (*). The table fields are displayed under the Data preview tab. You can select fields individually by selecting the box beside each field name. Select Insert script after you have made your selection.

Table parameters

To run some of the tables, you need to enter specific table parameters, usually in the form of an object ID or an object name. You can find many of these parameters when you run other tables.

For example, to run the GetCollectorList table you need to enter a survey ID. You can fetch the list of surveys and their IDs by running the GetSurveyList table.

Proposed action Proposed action

To reduce the impact of reaching the API rate limits, develop your app with the following in mind:

  • Extract only the data you need.
  • Reload one Survey Monkey-based application at a time.
  • Ensure that loops in your script that make API calls will not result in infinite loops.
