 Exporting from Other Data Sources

You can import data into the system from any other application that can create a CSV (comma separated values) file.

  1. Save your data source as a CSV file.

  2. Ensure that:

    • This file contains Email field. Your survey will be sent to email addresses indicated in this file field.

    • This file does not contain fields which you do not want to import to your survey including field headings (such as Email, Name etc.), page brakes etc.

    • Only commas or semicolons or tabulation serve as delimiters/list separators (If your file contains other separators you may need to change Regional Settings on your computer).
