Import your survey draft from a Word document, this works with a previously downloaded aytm survey draft. You can modify the questions and answers but keep the markup so the system can interpret the survey draft. This is great for survey translations and sharing surveys between aytm accounts.
How it works
- Click on the gear icon at the top right of the Survey Editor.
- Click on the upload survey draft button.
- Select the correct file from your file explorer.
- Within a minute your survey will populate!
To import a survey the word draft must contain our survey structure markups as shown in the image below.
Our survey drafts include the question type, delineations for sub-questions or answer sets, and other markups to help interpret the survey structure.
For surveys with images, if you want to upload the same image from the download, it will need the image ID.
Note: if you add a new image, you can add those to the platform directly after uploading.
Every country or language requires a separate survey. We reccomend programming a survey draft to act as the English master file. This will also help with merging surveys after they complete.
After programming the English version of a survey, download the Word draft, translate the survey text, and then upload the translated document into a new survey. This is useful when you want to translate the results to English when the surveys complete. It's important to keep the survey drafts (the original English and any translated versions) identical to merge.
Transferring a Survey Draft
Another useful scenario will be if you need to transfer a survey from one account to another. If you want to share a survey with someone and don’t have seats on the same team account, you can download the survey draft as a Word document, and they can use this Draft Upload feature to upload the survey draft to their account.
Make sure to review and preview the uploaded survey carefully after the upload and before launching!
