SurveyMonkey

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

Tip:

The Qlik Web Connectors help you connect to different data sources and fetch data in the same way. Learn how to authenticate a data source connection and how to use tables to fetch data.

Connecting to data sources

Supported offerings

  • Qlik Sense Desktop
  • Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows
  • QlikView

This connector must be installed separately.

Ways to access your data

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

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.

Tables that can be loaded Tables that can be loaded
Table Description
GetUserDetails Returns basic information about the authenticated user.
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.
GetSurveyDetailsAsXml Use this table to fetch the metadata for a specified survey ID in XML format.
GetCollectorList Retrieves a paged list of collectors for a survey in a user's account.
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.

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.

Working with the SurveyMonkey API quota limit

You receive an error message that you have reached the API rate limit

Reference - SurveyMonkey developer documentation

You can refer to the SurveyMonkey API documentation to learn more about the requirements and restriction imposed by the APIs when making requests.

Troubleshooting

You receive an error message that you have reached the API rate limit

Possible cause

You have exceeded the API limits that are imposed on the Qlik Web Connectors by the SurveyMonkey API.

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.
