About Panel Company Integration
If you are using a panel company to distribute your survey, they will want you to set up your survey to track respondents. It can seem kind of complicated, but if you follow these steps, you will be a panel integration expert!
Giving the Panel Company Your Survey Link.
The panel company will attach information to the end of this link when distributing the survey so that they can track respondents.
- Open the Distribute Survey section of Qualtrics.
- If the survey is not active, click Activate your survey to collect responses.
- Copy the Anonymous Survey link that appears, and email it to the panel company.

The panel company will have specified which redirect link is for Screen-outs, which is for Quotas and Completes. If you don’t have any screening criteria in your survey, you won’t need the Screen-out link. If you don’t have any Quotas in your survey, you won’t need the Quotas link.
