Today, we’re excited to introduce you to Pre-Populate. This new feature allows you to automatically fill some survey fields with data that you already have (i.e. name, age, email, etc.) rather than ask for the information again.
How it works
Here is sample survey:
If a user clicks on the link, they will be taken to the survey with no pre-filled questions. To pre-fill a question, more information must be appended to the end of the URL. The following example fills the first question with “Mary”:
The following link automatically selects the third choice of the second question:
You can also append multiple parameters in the same URL to pre-fill multiple questions, like in this example:
Pre-Populate URL formatting
The formats for the URL parameters for each question type are as follows:
q1_2 – Selects the second choice of question number one.
q2=Mary – Enters “Mary” into question number two.
q3_1=John – Enters “John” into the first textbox of question number three.
q4_1=2 – Selects the second column of the first row in question number four.
As usual, we welcome questions and feedback from you. If you’d like to get in touch, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
