Uploading External Variables

If you have a dataset that contains information about your respondents (for example, their demographic profile) and you want to use that data in segmentation, you can upload the dataset into Conjoint.ly.

After response collection, you can upload your data from the list of participants. You must ensure each respondent has a GET variable, such as id, in order to match the data to each participant.

To upload external variables to your experiment:

  • Open the Market Overview in your survey report.

  • Navigate to the Experiment status and actions module and click the Review participants button.

  • Click the Upload external data button located at the bottom-left of the screen to prompt the external variable upload wizard.

  • Drag and drop either a .csv or .txt file containing your external variables.
