Decibel Insight


Our Qualtrics integration allows you to see which users have taken part in a Qualtrics survey.

Enabling the Qualtrics Integration

To enable this option, simply navigate to Settings > Integrations > VoC > Qualtrics and tick the Qualtrics Enabled checkbox, before clicking Save.

Please note: The Qualtrics integration does not work retroactively as it requires us to collect and aggregate the data each time the script is fired.

Using the Qualtrics Integration

Upon collecting Qualtrics surveys, you can begin to use these by creating Segments based on them.

When creating a segment, in Segment Filters, click on the Integrations tab and navigate to Qualtrics Survey and use the drop down to select Offered, Accepted, Completed or Abandoned, such as in the image below.

Upon creating the segment, you can begin to filter Sessions, Heatmaps, Forms and other features in Decibel Insight based on those users who have or have not taken part in a Qualtrics survey.

Access Session Replays Directly From Qualtrics

The Decibel Session ID should be stored alongside a Qualtrics Survey using the embedded data functionality provided by Qualtrics.

On any Action, click "Options" then "Embedded Data"

Click Add Embedded Data.

Enter a name of the Embedded Data value, in this case disessionid.

Select “Value from JavaScript” for the Embedded Data value.

Insert the below JavaScript which will retrieve the Decibel Session ID from the user’s session.
