How to Merge Surveys in SurveyMonkey

January 28th, 2018

So, you’ve successfully created and administered multiple surveys in SurveyMonkey to the same set of respondents and now you want to merge those results to get a combined view of your respondents’ views.

Sounds reasonable enough, right? But it’s actually harder than you may think.

SurveyMonkey actually says it’s not possible to merge two survey designs or the results of two separate surveys, according to their Help Center.


If you’re thinking of doing this manually in Excel by exporting each identical survey, combining the files by hand, manually matching RespondentID’s by survey question, and manually copying survey answers – you’ll quickly find that answers are not in the same order, and scaling this effort across any meaningful amount of surveys can quickly eat up hours that could be used more productively.

But here’s the good news: it actually is possible to merge two survey results – with DataHero.

SurveyMonkey is one of the best survey software platforms out there, and makes it easy to create, administer, and review survey results. No matter if you are creating customer surveys to derive NPS scores, or monitoring employee feedback at your company, or trying to better understand your customer’s product feature needs – surveys can provide a powerful platform to collect data, and survey results can lead to clear, actionable insights.

However, analyzing and visualizing those data insights can sometimes be a challenge for even the best survey software platforms. It’s often better to take those survey results into a dedicated data analysis and data visualization platform like DataHero that can make the most of survey data results.

It’s why we are so proud to partner with SurveyMonkey to provide exceptional data analysis and data visualizations tools for analyzing survey results.

In fact, when it comes to actually analyzing your survey data and results in a deeper or more intuitive way, SurveyMonkey recommends DataHero as its go-to platform for bringing raw survey results to life with stunning charts and graphs that everyone can understand.


DataHero makes it easy to connect your SurveyMonkey data, create stunning charts and visualizations of your survey results, and share those insights with your teams and clients.

We also make it possible to merge survey results at scale with some of our Enterprise level plans. Just send us an email and we’ll be happy to discuss your specific needs.
