How to Add and Edit Questions
Once you've created and named a survey or quiz, you'll need to start adding questions.
Adding a New Question
- Click ‘Add Items’ in the sidebar
- Choose the Question Type you want to insert
- Click ‘Add Item’ or drag and drop it into your project
- Enter the question and answer text
Note: Your project will save automatically, to stop you from losing any work.
Our question prediction tool will analyze your question text as you type and recommend a question type.
To use the question prediction tool:
- Click 'Add a Question
- Type in your question text
- Add your answer choices
When creating a new survey, a question prediction field will be present by default. Just type your question into the text field and a question type will be predicted.
If you want to switch from our suggested question type to another, you can do this without adding a new question.
- Click the question text field
- Open the question type dropdown on the right side
- Select a new question type
Editing a Question
We allow you to edit question using the same methods you created them with:
Text: This can be edited by clicking the text field and replacing the old questions/answers with new next.
Images: Simply click the image you wish to replace, and select another image from the library.
Can I change question types of a question in my project?
Unfortunately, most question types do now allow you to switch to another once you have placed it inside your project.
However, there are a few exceptions to this:
- Opinion Scale & Slider: You can switch between these question types through the Question Quick Menu for either. This also applies to Multi-Factor Scales and Multi-Factor Sliders.
- Multi-Choice (Single) & Multi-Choice (Multiple): In the Question Quick Menu for these question types, you can adjust the number of ‘Minimum/ Maximum Answers’ that can be selected by participants. This, essentially, allows you to change between both types. This also applies between Picture Choice (Single Select) and Picture Choice (Multi-Select).
- Comments/ Essay Box & Text Box (Single): You can increase or decrease the height of textareas in the Question Quick Menu for both these question types. Fundamentally making their variations of the same type.
