Guide for bulk importing Inspirations


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, 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.
