Advanced Questions

Advanced questions go above and beyond standard survey insights; they allow you to obtain detailed information about your respondent and their interaction with your survey, often without requiring any action from the respondent. These types of questions are especially useful if you are looking to gather analytical information about your respondents, but are not necessary for Qualtrics to provide detailed respondent information for analysis. The options for advanced questions are described below:

The Timing question is a hidden question that can be added on any page of your survey to track and manage the time a respondent spends on that page.

Because the Timing question is not displayed to users, it has not been added to the Example Survey. You can read more about how it is used, what it tracks, and how you can use this data on the Qualtrics Timing Question Support page

The File Upload question type allows respondents to upload a file along with their survey response. Using File Upload, you can collect data that may not be available through standard survey questions.

To view how this function might appear in your form, please see Question 19 of the Example Survey

Captcha Verification (or Completely Automated Public Turing Test to tell Computers and Humans Apart) is a common web technique used to help ensure that your respondents are real humans and not a program written to spam your survey. In a Captcha Verification, the respondent is presented with a picture (or “challenge”) of words or characters, and the respondent must correctly type out those characters in order to proceed.

The Meta Info question is a hidden question that will track and report basic information about your respondents, such as their operating system and browser. This question is often used for troubleshooting or for understanding the technical setup of your respondents.

Because the Meta Info question is not displayed to users, it has not been added to the Example Survey. You can read more about how it is used, what it tracks, and how you can use this data on the Qualtrics Meta Info Support page
