Using Quiz and Survey Master Google Sheets Connector Addon you can save the Quiz and Survey Master quizzes/survey results, user contact information, individual question points score, responder’s IP Address, and the corresponding user comments (if any) directly to the Google Spread Sheets. It is a very convenient way of saving and preserving data without manually copying and pasting it.
Once you set up the integration addon the data is automatically updated 24×7 as and when the quiz/survey is taken by the respondents.
Once you have purchased the addon, you will have access to download the addon. To install, 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 been uploaded, you should now have the plugin QSM – Google Sheet Connector listed in your list of plugins. Activate that plugin. Once activated, the addon will add a new tab in the Addon Settings labeled “Google Sheets”.
To configure the Addon First, enter your license key. Note that the addon won’t work without a valid license key. Enter your license key from your account into the “Addon License Key” field on the “Google Sheet Connector” tab of the “Addon Settings” in Installed Addons.
