Qualtrics representatives will be on campus on Tues., Oct. 9 to lead our first Show and Tell Discussion of this academic year. They also will provide a one-hour basic overview of Qualtrics for faculty and staff who are new users.
October Show and Tell: Stats iQ Demo (open to all) – Tues., Oct. 9 from 12:00-1:00, 18th Ave. Library, 3rd Floor Research Commons
Qualtrics will provide a demo on Stats iQ, a tool that enables users to do statistical analyses and visualizations within Qualtrics. This tool recently was added to the university’s Qualtrics license. No registration required.
Training: Introduction to Qualtrics for Faculty and Staff (registration required) – Tues., Oct. 9 from 1:00-2:00, 18th Ave. Library, 3rd Floor Research Commons
Qualtrics representatives will provide a basic overview of Qualtrics survey software for faculty and staff who are new Qualtrics users. The session will cover how to gain access to Qualtrics, how to create a survey instrument, how to distribute a survey, and how to create a survey report. Space is limited and registration is required through BuckeyeLearn.
Qualtrics users have a new option to distribute surveys and reminders using a custom OSU email address. The new domain @survey.osu.edu has enhanced email security set up to make it compatible with sending from Qualtrics. Users can create their own “From” addresses using @survey.osu.edu in the address, making it easier for recipients to identify that a survey is coming from an Ohio State University sender. By sending emails through this domain, emails may be less likely to be flagged as spam. Read Instructions for Using @survey.osu.edu to Distribute Surveys in Qualtrics for more detailed information.
Tuesday, April 3 from 12:00-1:00, 352 Research Commons, 18th Ave. Library
Leah Halper (Brand Admininistrator/Center for the Study of Student Life) and Sean Duffy (OhioLINK) will be presenting on how to export data from Qualtrics. They will cover the export process for Excel, SPSS and TSV. During the presentation, they will explain the differences between using the Table Exporter function versus the Legacy Exporter function. They will finish up by reviewing some recent bugs in the Qualtrics exporting process.
Tuesday, March 6 from 12:00-1:00, Research Commons Room 352
John Strawn, Digital Communications Strategist in the Office of Academic Affairs, will present on ways to customize survey themes and email invitations.

Qualtrics is currently working on an issue with emails. Survey emails distributed through Qualtrics are bouncing when sent to osu.edu email accounts and other accounts that go through Microsoft. The issue is system-wide, not just Ohio State University. User are advised NOT to distribute surveys through Qualtrics until further notice.
UPDATE 10/10/17 – The issue with email has been resolved and users may distribute surveys again.

The presentation will focus on the records you likely create, edit, or manage, including the survey research that you use, create, and store in Qualtrics. Additionally, the legal obligations you have when creating and using records to do your job and the university’s responsibilities when responding to public records requests, will be covered. Feel free to bring your lunch.
