How to Integrate With a Survey Tool

Even though it is easy to run your whole survey completely on, you can use 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 For example:

  • Respondents start answering a survey on your survey platform,
  • At some point, they are redirected to,
  • They complete the experiment on,
  • (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 and back to your survey platform. Here is how to make it work:

  1. Make sure you have a shareable link enabled on For example, you will see:
  2. Take note of what variables your survey platform wants to pass on to 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 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,[id]&gender=[gender].
  4. Set up redirect links on 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, respondents will still be redirected back to the other survey platform. For example, if id is 12345, but gender is omitted (, respondents will be sent to the following address: http://another.survey.platform/complete?id=12345&gender=undefined.

Integration with Fuel Cycle 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.

Redirects to and from SurveyMonkey

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

It is feasible to redirect respondents from SurveyMonkey to; however, Survey Monkey currently appears unable to send respondent’s IDs to (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’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

Redirects from and back to Typeform

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

If you redirect from 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 and pass it back to Qualtrics, you will need to:

  1. In Qualtrics (to redirect to, specify${e://Field/ParticipantID}.
  2. In (to redirect back to Qualtrics), specify[IDpassedFromQualtrics].

Redirects from SurveyGizmo

Please refer to Alchemer for information on passing values from Alchemer to 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
