All of the functions that make Response Sets valuable using traditional Qualtrics Reporting (View Results tab) can now be achieved in the Reporting tab without using Response Sets.
For this reason, we recommend not using Response Sets for any new studies. Instead, we encourage all Qualtrics Research Suite users to switch to the new Reporting Beta for these features.
Response Sets are “buckets” into which data is collected. Normal data collection places all of your data into the “Default Response Set.” If you would like to create other response sets and split your completed data into groups, you can do so by creating multiple Response Sets.Warning
You cannot analyze data from two separate response sets together in your account.
Response sets can differentiate your data by Time and by Mailing.
When you activate a new response set, all future incoming data will be placed in that response set rather than the old one. This will give you data in two sets (for example, a pre-October 15th response set and a post-October 15th response set).
Using the Qualtrics Mailer, you may specify the response set into which the data for a particular mailing will be placed.
