When inviting respondents via email, you can quickly import them by creating a CSV file with their background information. Your CSV file has to contain the respondents' email addresses. Any other background variable depends on your survey needs.
For example, if you have a multilingual survey and you want to make the email invitations personal, then it's a good idea to add the following variables:
If you've added the first and last name variables to your email invitation, these will be replaced with the first and last name of the respondent. For this example, the language variable will ensure that your respondents receive the survey in the correct language.
How do I create a CSV file?
- Open Excel
- Insert the background variable names in the top row and the corresponding data underneath. The variables, first name, last name, email, and language, have to be in English.
- When saving the document, save it as CSV (Comma delimited).
- Now your file is ready to be uploaded or you can copy/paste it.
