Who is this guide for?
Account Admins, Survey Admins, Survey Creators
Culture Amp are able to help you tailor your inspiration engine for a particular survey via a bulk import process (Excel/CSV).
If you have a large amount of edits you'd like to make to the inspiration engine for a particular survey, simply reach out to our Product Support Team and ask for the Inspiration export from your survey.
Inspiration exports and imports can be actioned by the Culture Amp team at any point after your survey design is complete (draft, live or closed).
After reviewing the information below, populate the file and send it back to Product Support. We'll then be in touch with the next steps.
Custom inspirations can be bulk uploaded and deleted based on whether they are included in the import or not.
If custom Inspirations are not in the spreadsheet being uploaded, they will be deleted
Custom inspirations can be manually deleted and un-mapped from the Inspirations page of your survey
The import replaces and is not additive
