How to Integrate Conjoint.ly With a Survey Tool


Even though it is easy to run your whole survey completely on Conjoint.ly, 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].
  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 (https://run.conjoint.ly/study/970/7txubkovie?id=12345), respondents will be sent to the following address: http://another.survey.platform/complete?id=12345&gender=undefined.

Integration with Fuel Cycle

Conjoint.ly supports full integration with FC Exchange, allowing you to launch surveys with your community members. Fuel Cycle has a detailed guide on how to fully integrate your surveys with the community.

For more information, you can check out this video about integrating Fuel Cycle with Conjoint.ly.

Redirects to and from SurveyMonkey

Please refer to SurveyMonkey docs on redirecting values from Conjoint.ly to SurveyMonkey.

It is feasible to redirect respondents from SurveyMonkey to Conjoint.ly; however, Survey Monkey currently appears unable to send respondent’s IDs to Conjoint.ly (refer to the “On, show a custom end page” option in the SurveyMonkey docs for latest information). This acts as a limiting factor for SurveyMonkey users since they do not properly connect with other platforms' experiments.

In order to combine the results, a common custom variable should be created from both platforms. This variable would be used as the intersection point between both platforms' output. The procedure of creating such a variable is explicitly described in our guide on GET variable. Additionally, as an alternative plan to achieve such a match between SurveyMonkey and Conjoint.ly’s respondents, it might be feasible to use respondents' IP and/or timestamp.

If such an intersection variable cannot be created for all the respondents at once, then it is necessary to generate a variable on an individual respondent level. Consequently, a lot of manual effort is required. Therefore, we highly recommend building your experiment entirely with Conjoint.ly.

Redirects from and back to Typeform

To redirect from Typeform to Conjoint.ly, you can use redirect after submission function, which allows you to pass variables to Conjoint.ly.

If you redirect from Conjoint.ly to Typeform, you can use hidden fields.

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 from SurveyGizmo

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