Qualtrics - What does start date, end date, and record date mean?

Enhancing understanding of raw data, as well as definitions of start date, end date, and record date.

    Respondent Information

    A dataset's first few columns contain information about each respondent and their response, such as their name, IP address, response submission dates, and so on. Here, we'll go through each of those columns and how to understand their content.

    All dates and times recorded in your Qualtrics account are in the time zone specified in your Account Settings.

    These date and time values indicate when the respondents first clicked the survey link.

    NOTE: If your Start Date and End Date columns in Excel contain ######, try making the columns wider. Excel uses # symbols when a date won’t fit.


    These date and time values indicate when the respondent submitted their survey. If the entry is an incomplete response, this date will indicate the last time the respondent interacted with the survey.


    This column indicates when a survey was recorded in Qualtrics.
    Because of incomplete responses, the EndDate and RecordedDate may disagree. The difference can be determined by the time you select for incomplete responses, or by the default of seven days.
