How to Use Piped Text

How to Use Piped Text?

Piped text allows you to import text into your survey from a pervious question in your survey or another source in Qualtrics.  An example includes piping the name of the participant in an email message with your survey link.

Once you know where you would like to place your piped text you can begin.  If you would like to place piped text into a question begin by selecting the blue Piped Text button near the top left of the question field.  

When you insert piped text into an answer choice, select the blue drop-down menu to the right of the answer choice and select Piped Text.

 

If you would like to place piped text into an email message (Distribution tab), select the {a} icon (a in curly braces) on the Rich Text Editor toolbar of your email.

 

After you select the Piped Text button, you can decide where you would like to pipe the text from. 

If you pipe text from a survey question begin by selecting the question and the item within the question that you would like to text.
