Add respondents to a mailing list from a survey

  1. Click “Import from a Survey.”
    Qtip: The “Import from a Survey” option essentially allows you to run a panel trigger retroactively. Panel triggers are setup within surveys in Research Suite and will add respondents to your mailing list based on survey responses. If you have a survey that is being used to recruit people for your mailing list, we highly recommend setting up a Panel Trigger in your survey before conducting the study.

  3. If you choose to “Create Contacts,” you can decide whether you would like to link the survey response history to the respondents in Target Audience.

  5. You can also specify a date range from which to pull respondents if you’d like.
