Manually Entering Survey Responses

Manual entry of survey responses is useful if not all of your responses have been completed digitally - for example if you have conducted oral surveys or used paper questionnaires. Adding these to your digital responses means they will be included in any data analysis you wish to carry out.

Adding Responses Manually

  1. Go to the Collect page of your survey
  2. Click on the survey link you wish to use (Default Web Link will be used in most cases)
  3. Click Toggle Advanced Options from the menu on the left
  4. Click on Manual Entry
  5. Click the green Add Response button to open the survey 
  6. Add the manual responses to the survey questions
  7. Once completed, you will need to close the window or tab. 
  8. Click Add Response again to continue with a new set of responses
  9. To view responses you have entered, click the small Refresh List in the Manual Entry screen

Creating a Specific Tracking Link for Manual Data Entry

Alternatively, you can create a specific new Tracking Link for manually-entered responses.

  1. Go to the Collect page of your survey
  2. Under Tracking Links, create a new Web Link
  3. Rename this web link to "Manual Data Entry" or something appropriate for your needs
  4. Use this tracking to enter data manually
