About Adding Default Choices
You can use the 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
- While editing your survey, select the question you want to add default choices to.
- In the Question behavior of the survey editor, select 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 circle icon located in the top right corner.
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, edit your default choices and click the blue dropdown menu directly next to any text field.
