Qualtrics R Package

The qualtrics R package provides functions to interact with the Qualtrics online survey tool. It requires that your account have API access. The latest development version can be installed from Github with the devtools package.

> require(devtools)
> install_github('qualtrics', 'jbryer')

> ls('package:qualtrics')
 [1] "addRecipient"           "createPanel"            "getPanel"              
 [4] "getPanelMemberCount"    "getPanels"              "getRecipient"          
 [7] "getSurvey"              "getSurveyName"          "getSurveyResults"      
[10] "getSurveys"             "sendReminder"           "sendSurveyToIndividual"
[13] "varEntryDialog" 

Login credentials are required. The varEntryDialog provides a user dialog for entering a username and password. Note that although password entry is masked in the dialog, the password is stored in plain text within R.

> login <- varEntryDialog(vars=c('Username', 'Password'), show=c(NA,'*'))

You can retrieve the list of survey in your account with the getSurveys function (note output has been truncated).

> getSurveys(login$Username, login$Password)
