How to Copy a Survey in SurveyMonkey

Creating a survey takes time, so there's no reason you should start from scratch every time—especially if you're mostly planning on asking the same questions. Happily, it's easy to copy a survey in SurveyMonkey.

There are two ways you can do this. You can make a copy of a survey in your SurveyMonkey account, allowing you to use that as a starting point for your new survey. You can also copy any survey over to another SurveyMonkey account.

Copy a Survey in SurveyMonkey

To get started, open SurveyMonkey and click Create Survey.

In the next window, click Copy Existing Survey

Copy or Transfer a Survey to Another Survey Monkey Account

Want to send a copy of your survey to another Survey Monkey user? Or transfer ownership of a survey entirely? You can do that from the My Surveys page, assuming the person you want to send the survey to has a paid plan.

Click the three dots in the More column next to the survey you want to copy or transfer.

You'll see a few options.

The top two options are what we care about. Let's go over the difference.

  • Send a copy will keep the survey on your account and also send a copy of it to another account. They can edit the survey on their account without affecting yours.

  • Transfer survey will send the survey to another account and remove it from yours.

Note that you will need to know the SurveyMonkey username in order to copy or transfer a survey to another account.
