Will Qualtrics® replace Checkbox®?

Because it provides more powerful data collection tools, Qualtrics® is intended to replace Checkbox® as Urban's survey software solution. We plan to phase out Checkbox® usage over the summer of 2015, and we will work with you to develop a transition strategy for your data and for any active surveys. Please plan to use Qualtrics® for any upcoming surveys.
