Is it possible for a survey taker to paste information from Excel into multiple textboxes of a survey?


Is there a way for survey takers to paste in information from an Excel document across multiple text boxes in a survey?

As an example, if we have three seperate text boxes – FIRST NAME, LAST NAME, COMPANY our customers want to paste information from three cells in an Excel into the three survey boxes in one go, currently they have to go box by box.

I realise we could get them to upload an Excel, but we’d prefer them to put the names straight into the portal.

    There is not an out of the box way to do what you have described. Respondents will need to go box by box when pasting. I’m not sure if there is a custom solution that would allow respondents to do this but that would be one potential solution.

    Aside from that, it might be worth exploring one of SurveyGizmo’s pre-population¬†options (those these do require you to have respondent information ahead of time):

    Hope this helps!
