Import Responses

About Importing Responses

You can use the Import Responses setting in the Responses page of your survey to combine responses from two identical surveys, re-upload edited data, or bring in your own data into a survey. You can view your imported responses in your Reports.

Responses are imported using CSV files.

Prepare Your Survey

Before importing, you’ll first need a survey to import your data to. The survey’s format and the CSV file format must match exactly. You can easily achieve this by using one of the following options:

  • Use the survey you downloaded the responses from.
  • Create a copy of the survey you downloaded the responses from.
  • Use a survey identical to the one that collected the responses you are importing.

Prepare Your File

The best and easiest way to prepare your CSV file is to download your survey's response data to CSV format and fill it out with the responses you want to import.

Your CSV file should be UTF-8 encoded.

You are not able to import email addresses to the email system variable. However, you create create your own background variable and match it to that.

The way your format your data depends on the question or variable type you're importing the data into. Read more about how to format every question and variable type below.
