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.


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 labelled Export And Import.

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

To export a quiz or survey, choose which quiz or survey 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.

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.

To import your quizzes and surveys, simply click the “Choose File” button to select your exported .json file. 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:
