sending edit links to respondents for incomplete survey entries (automation)


Hi there, a significant number of respondents (150+) did start to fill in the survey but for some reason or other did not complete it. I’d like to send all these respondents a link through which they will be able to revisit the survey and complete it this time around.

It’s easy enough to download the edit links for the individual entries in bulk, but once I’ve done that, is there a way to automatically send an edit link to all respondents that haven’t yet completed the survey in full?

It would be a lot of work to copy email and edit link on a one-by-one basis, given that I need to do that 150x

thanks, Koen

    There is not a built-in tool in SurveyGizmo to automatically send edit links to a list of contacts. Since you are able to download the edit links in bulk, you could feed these into an email provider. Most of these have a ‘mail merge’ capability that would allow you to merge in each respondent’s edit link into their message (and save some time).

    In the future, you could consider using SurveyGizmo’s Email Campaign functionality to distribute your survey:

    Using this feature will allow you to leverage the built-in Reminder Message capability which allows you to send reminder emails to those individuals who did not finish their surveys (includes respondents who either have not started or are part of the way through):

    Hope this helps!
