Use this form to maintain questions for questionnaires.


On the Setup tab of the Questionnaires form, select the Save question check box to indicate that the question text should be saved on the completed questionnaire.

Modifying questions

Use caution when you modify questions that have already been answered on questionnaires. Doing so can affect the evaluations and statistics of the answer sessions. Consider creating a new question with the same text, rather than modifying an existing question that has already been answered.

You cannot delete questions that are attached to a questionnaire, nor can you delete questions that respondents have completed. You can view completed questions in the Answer groups form.


If you include a question that might be difficult to answer, you can type instructions to assist the respondent on the Text FastTab. During the answer session, the instructions are displayed with the question.
