Use Autofill JavaScript to Save Time Taking and Testing Surveys

Ever get tired of clicking through your survey while testing? Adding some JavaScript to a bookmark can save you a ton of time! This tutorial will walk you through adding this bookmark to your browser. 

  1. First, create a new bookmark in your browser. We are using Google Chrome but you can do this in any browser.
  2. In Chrome click Bookmarks > Bookmark manager.

Open Bookmark manager

3.  Next, click the three vertical dots in the upper righthand corner of the page (not the browser!), and then click  Add New Page.  

open menu

add new bookmark

4.  A new field will pop up. In our example, we are making the name AutoFill. After you name your new Bookmark, copy and paste the code below into the URL (Be sure to scroll all the way to the end!)
