How to Integrate Conjointly With a Third-Party Survey Tool
Even though it is easy to run your whole survey completely on Conjointly, you can use Conjointly 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 Conjointly. For example:
- Respondents start answering a survey on your survey platform,
- At some point, they are redirected to Conjointly,
- They complete the experiment on Conjointly,
- (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 Conjointly and back to your survey platform. Here is how to make it work:
- Make sure you have a shareable link enabled on Conjointly. For example, you will see:
- Take note of what variables your survey platform wants to pass on to Conjointly and receive back to match the respondents to their respective survey flow. For example, consider the following variables:
- Insert a customised Conjointly 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,
- Set up redirect links on Conjointly. Make sure to put each variable in square brackets. For example,
- 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 Conjointly, respondents will still be redirected back to the other survey platform. For example, if
gender is omitted (

Integration with Fuel Cycle
Conjointly 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 Conjointly.
Redirects from and back to Typeform
To redirect from Typeform to Conjointly, you can use redirect after submission function, which allows you to pass variables to Conjointly.
If you redirect from Conjointly to Typeform, you can use hidden fields.
Redirects to and from SurveyMonkey
Please refer to SurveyMonkey docs on redirecting values from Conjointly to SurveyMonkey.
It is feasible to redirect respondents from SurveyMonkey to Conjointly; however, Survey Monkey currently appears unable to send respondent’s IDs to Conjointly (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 Conjointly’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 survey entirely on Conjointly.
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 Conjointly and pass it back to Qualtrics, you will need to:
- In Qualtrics (to redirect to Conjointly), specify
- In Conjointly (to redirect back to Qualtrics), specify
Redirects from SurveyGizmo / Alchemer
Please refer to Alchemer for information on passing values from Alchemer to Conjointly. 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 Conjointly.
