How To Use a Global Picklist Value Set in Simple Survey


Simple Survey can use predefined Global Picklist Value Sets for answer choices to custom survey questions. These value sets save time in building surveys and help maintain data integrity in survey responses.


When creating new surveys, administrators can utilize Global Picklist Value Set when defining answer choices for NEW custom questions. For example, a Global Picklist Value Set can be created for product names, sizing tables, sales channels, industry verticals, or other collection of values that would be useful across multiple surveys.
