Survey Monkey
2.0

Survey Monkey is online survey software that helps you to create and run professional online surveys

Overview
Copy

SurveyMonkey is a cloud-based survey tool that helps users create, send and analyze surveys.

API INFO: The Base URL used for the Survey Monkey connector is https://api.surveymonkey.com/v3. More information can be found on their main API documentation (v3.0) site.

Below is an example of a way in which you could potentially use the Survey Monkey connector, to list all of your contact lists and list contacts from each list retrieved.

The steps will be as follows:

  1. Setup using a manual trigger and list contact lists.

  2. Loop through the list of contact lists.

  3. List contacts in each contact list.

Your completed workflow should look similar to this:

1 - Setup Trigger & List Contact Lists
Copy

Select the manual trigger from the trigger options available. From the connectors panel on the left, add a Survey Monkey connector to your workflow. Set the operation to 'List contact lists'.

Feel free to re-name your steps as you go along to make things clearer for yourself and other users. The operation names themselves often suffice.

Upon completion of this first step, a list of contact lists from your account will have been retrieved.

2 - Loop Through the List of Contact Lists
Copy

Next, search for the Loop collection connector within your connector panel, and drag it into your workflow as your next step. Set your operations to 'Loop list'.

The Loop Collection connector allows you to iterate through a list of results. In this example, we will use it to iterate through the data found within the previous Survey Monkey connector step.

In order to specify the list you want to loop through, start by using the list mapping icon (found next to the list input field, within the properties panel) to generate the connector-snake.

While hovering over the 'List contact lists' step (with the tail end of the connector-snake), select data from the list of output properties displayed. This will auto-populate a jsonpath within your list input field, and update the type selector to jsonpath.

For more clarification on the pathways you have available, open the Debug panel to view your step's Input and Output.

JSONPATHS: For more information on what jsonpaths are and how to use jsonpaths with Tray, please see our pages on Basic data concepts and Mapping data between steps

CONNECTOR-SNAKE: The simplest and easiest way to generate your jsonpaths is to use our feature called the Connector-snake. Please see the main page for more details.

Once this step has been set up, you will be able to loop through the list of contact lists you retrieved in step 1.

3 - List Contacts From Each List
Copy

The last step is to drag a Survey Monkey connector inside of the Loop Collection step itself. Set the operation to 'List contacts'. As you can see, the 'contact list ID' field is required. This can be obtained by using the connector snake once again to hover over the 'Loop Collection' step and selecting id from the list of output properties displayed.

INTERPOLATION: When you wish to include JSON generated data within another input/output result, use our Interpolation method as described here.

With this last step completed, you will have successfully retrieved the list of contacts associated to each contact list available in your account.
