Unsure which Question Type you need? Instead of selecting a question type from the dropdown menu, click the blue button labelled View Question Examples to see a visual representation of how the different question types can look, or if you're still unsure, check out our Understanding Question Types help guide.

Using Pre-Made Answers

You can pre-populate the answer field with pre-made answers to save time when creating a survey. Pre-made answers can be edited and customised once you have selected any of them.

Using pre-made awnsers for questions

To use pre-made answers:

  1. In the Pre-made drop-down menu, select the pre-made answer list that is the closest match for the answers you want to use.
  2. The field is populated with the pre-made answers that you have selected.
  3. Edit the answers as required.

Once you've created the list of answers, you can edit them. Alternatively, click the Add/Edit Choices in Bulk button to speed up editing if you have a long list.

Editing Questions

When in the Survey Design page, you'll see that each question is accompanied by five links on the right-hand side. Click the Edit Question option to make changes to the question.

edit a question

The editor will load the question popup. Amend the details within the question, and click Save Question to save the changes you've made.

Changing a question type may permanently erase all of the existing Answer Choices. We recommend Hiding a Question and adding a new one in its place where possible.
