Export & Import Quiz / Survey

Documentation for 7.0 version of plugins is available at QSM 7.0 Documentation

The Export & Import Addon allows you to export your quizzes and surveys from one website and import them into another website.

INSTALLATION/SETUP

Once you have purchased the addon, you will have access to download the addon. To install, simply upload the addon as a normal WordPress plugin. To do so, go to the Plugins page and click Add New. Then, click Upload. From there, upload the zip file that you downloaded when downloading the addon. Once the addon has uploaded, you should now have the plugin QSM – Export & Import listed in your list of plugins. Activate that plugin. Once activated, the addon will add a new tab in the Addon Settings labeled Export And Import.

SETTINGS/CONFIGURE

QSM Import Export Addon

First, simply enter your license key from your account and then click “Save Changes”.

Exporting Quizzes/Surveys

Before Exporting the Quiz/Survey you first need to choose the File Format. Select any one from the options like JSON Export or CSV Export depending upon your requirements.

To export a quiz or survey, choose which quiz or survey you need to export from the drop-down in the Export Quizzes/Surveys section. If you would like to export all of your quizzes and surveys, select “All Quizzes & Surveys“. Then, click the “Export Quizzes/Surveys” button.

If you chose the Export File Format as CSV Export, then you need to specify the Export Type by selecting the proper option from the drop-down menu. You will have the option to Export All Data or Export Questions & Answers.

The plugin should prompt for you to download your export file. On some sites, the contents of the export may be shown in the tab instead of being downloaded. Simply right-click, and choose “Save As..” to download the export file as a .json file.

Importing Quizzes/Surveys

To import your quizzes and surveys, simply choose from the Existing Quizzes/Surveys for which you need to import the Questions and Answers from the Drop-Down menu.

Note: You cannot import Questions and Answers as CSV Export/JSON Export as a Quiz/Survey. You first need to select the Quiz/Survey from the drop-down before carrying out the import.

Again, make sure the Questions and Answers file which you are about to upload is in the CSV or JSON File Format only.

Next, you need to hit the Browse button to search for the file to upload from your computer, locate the file, and hit the Open button.

Then, click the “Upload Quizzes/Surveys” button. Depending on the amount of data in your file and your server, this process will normally take 3 to 5 seconds. The plugin will tell you that your quiz or survey has been imported.

You are now all finished moving quizzes and surveys from one site to another!

Note: If you receive an error uploading the file repeatedly, your site may not allow this file. In order to work around this, you have to add this to your wp-config.php file while working with the exports and imports:

define(‘ALLOW_UNFILTERED_UPLOADS’, true);

For security purposes, please remove that after you are finished exporting and importing.
