About Adding Default Choices
You can use our Add Default Choices feature to pre-populate answer choices within a question when the respondent opens the survey. This can be useful in situations when you ask respondents to update previously collected data, such as mailing address, email, name, etc.
How to Add Default Choices
- In the Survey tab, select the question you want to edit.
- Click the gray gear to the left of the question and choose Add Default Choices.
- Provide the answers you want to be pre-populated (e.g., a selected choice or specific text).
- Click Save.
- To clear a default choice, return to the Edit Default Choices window, click Clear, and then click Save.
Questions with default choices will have a gray icon beneath the Advanced Question Options gear.
You can add default choices to the following list of question types.
Displaying Piped Text in Default Choices
You can use Piped Text as the default choice in any type of question where the respondent can enter text.
To access Piped Text in a default choice, go to the Edit Default Choices window and click the blue dropdown menu directly next to any text field.
