Can Survey Gizmo self-populate data from an external database? For example, if I have a customer database with company profile info, is there a way to have that data self-populated into the survey and have the respondent simply validate if that info is correct?
Thanks for the post! We cannot directly prepopulate from an external database, but I have a couple suggestions on how we can get your survey to prepopulate.
- If you export the information from your external database, you can upload it into a Login action where the respondent can easily type in their name or email address have their survey populated.
- If you plan on inviting your respondents via SurveyGizmo, our Email Campaigns will generate unique tracking links that will prepopulate the survey.
- You can also use URL variables to prepopulate your survey. This may not be ideal, but it is a method to prepopulate that I thought I should include it just in case.
I hope this helps! If you have any other questions just let us know!
Have a wonderful day!
