How to add merge code for collecting weather data


I would like to collect respondent’s weather data based on their location and time. I know we can use merge code for getting time and date. Can we use the same for weather data – like temperature and sky conditions?

    SurveyGizmo does not have a built-in feature for automatically collecting weather data via merge code. You would need to either ask for the weather information as a question in the survey, or set up something custom to automatically collect the weather information.

    The are likely some thrid party weather plug-ins out there that offer an embed codes that you can utilize in your survey. You would need some javascript to pull out the information from the plug in and into the survey.

    This may be something that SurveyGizmo’s Programming Services Team could build as a custom solution for your survey if you want to explore the option with them:
