When setting up an Import scheduler and using FTP as data source it is possible to define which multiple choice question separator to be applied during the file upload. The multiple choice question separator setting is positioned in the Data source area and it will only appear when FTP is the selected data source as it is only applicable when importing SPSS, Excel and CSV files.

The Input field is blank by default when creating a new Import schedule and in all existing Import schedules. If the field is left blank the last used multiple choice separator in the manual import screen will be used as a fall back.
