Survey Tool


The Legacy Single Response Report feature will be deprecated on February 18, 2023

Note: this only impacts a small minority of users who make use of this feature and they have been identified and contacted individually.

The legacy single response report feature in Qualtrics is being deprecated and will no longer be functional after February 18, 2023. If you are currently using this feature in your surveys you will need to update your survey to use the new single response report solution.

What is the change?

The legacy single response report is a URL that displays a report for a single survey response. It is formatted like below:{surveyId}&R={responseId}&ResponseSummary=True

These URLs are no longer generated by any workflows in the Qualtrics platform. However, some users may have manually created these URLs in email triggers or email tasks, by using piped text to add the responseId into the URL.

After February 18, 2023, these URLs will no longer work, and will instead return an error.

What action do you need to take?

Any email task or email trigger where you have manually created the legacy single response report URL needs to be updated to use the new single response report solution. There are 2 ways to switch to this new solution:

  1. Create an email task via Workflows and enable the "Include Response Report" option. This will automatically include a response report link in your email.
  2. Use an embedded data field in your email task to pipe in the new single response report URL. The format of the piped text is

This update must be completed before February 18, 2023 as legacy single response URLs will no longer work after this date.

What if you have questions?

If you have a question about how to start using the new single response report solution, please visit the Email Task support page. It's also always worth checking the XM Community to see if any other users have the same question. If you'd rather speak to a specialist, our Support Team is always ready to assist. To contact them, please log into your Support Portal.
