Adding a Question

Questions in your form can be added at any point by clicking on the button that is below every question. Type in the name of your question, click ‘Add Question’. Then, choose the type that’s applicable to your question.


Please note that changing the question type is currently not supported and may result in unexpected results. If the form has already been deployed, use a question with a different XML name, even if the label remains the same.

Adding a question hint

A question hint is text that is shown below the question text on the form. You can use it to provide extra instruction on how to answer the question.

To add a question hint, just click Question hint below the question text and type it.


Deleting a Question

You can remove a question at any point by clicking on the red trash can . You’ll be asked to confirm before it is permanently deleted from your form.


Changing the Order of Your Questions

All your questions and groups can be moved to any position in the form. Just drag-and-drop it from its current position to where you want it to go, even at the very beginning or very end of the form.


Changing Question Settings

To access advanced features for each question click on the Settings cog in the top-right corner of the question. Here you can modify further details of the question, such as skip logic, validating responses, setting question hints, making a question required, etc. More information on this is available in the respective sections for Question Options, Skip Logic, and Validation Criteria.


Duplicating a Question

You can duplicate a question at any point by clicking on ‘Duplicate Question’ . An exact copy of the question will appear just below the question which you have duplicated.


Adding Questions to the Library

In order to reuse a question in future forms, you can click on ‘Add Question to Library’ . It will be saved in your Question Library as a copy, meaning that you can make further changes to the original question in the form or even delete it, without affecting the copy that has been placed in the library.
