New study with the same Qualtrics survey: How to keep the data separate?

I ran a prolific+qualtrics study with N=100 and now want to replicate with N=400.
The qualtrics survey is the same, of course (and has a bunch of blocks, so would take an hour to recreate and debug/check).

Do people recommend:

  1. Delete the data in the survey, create a new prolific project pointing at the original survey.
  2. Recreate the survey in Qualtrics and point the replication to that?
  3. There is an easy way to duplicate projects in Qualtrics that I am not seeing.

@Community_Leaders any ideas? :slight_smile:

Hi @Tim_Bates,

I wouldn’t recommend deleting the data you have in the original survey because there’s a chance that you might want to take a look at them in the future.

I would suggest you replicate the original survey and create a new Prolific study which is then linked to your newly duplicated Qualtrics survey.

From my experience, creating a copy of a study is rather simple on Qualtrics. What you need to do is to click the 3 dots at the very right of your project name and choose Copy project. That’s it.

Hope it helps!


hi @Tim_Bates , #3 for sure. please post again if you’re having trouble with it!

Hi Tim

I sometimes simply make a note of the time stamp of the last participant in the N=100 group “increase places” adding 400 places, from the “Action” menu at the top right of the Prolifc study. That way I don’t need to replicate my survey, and have all my data in one place.
