Add logic and pre-populate answers for known respondents in the questions editor and make your survey look neat.
Auto fill feature allows you to pre-populate single variable, survey responses automatically before sending it to respondents.
The variables could be defined as a URL parameter or Initial values in the question editor.
URL parameters are variables which differ for individual respondents, whereas Initial values are used when the variables are common for all the respondents.
This feature also enables respondents to change the entry made by the survey author, in case of any mismatch.
To explain how the auto fill option works, take for example, a question that requires the respondent to fill out their name. Here, the name is considered a known variable. Auto fill works only with questions which have single variables as responses(read demographics, name, e mail id, etc,.) This known variable (name) is now appended in the web link, through which the survey is to be distributed.
To enable auto fill feature in the survey, follow these steps:
Piping lets you add in the variables from the previous questions or custom variables and lets you customize the follow up questions.
This feature makes designing a survey easy and also helps respondents feel more comfortable when answering your survey.
Consider a Customer support rating survey and the following steps will show you how to pipe in a known parameter and how to add piping to a follow up question.
