Designing Surveys

Each survey can contain an unlimited number of questions distributed amongst any number of pages. A survey should contain multiple pages if page conditions are desired, or to limit the number of questions per page. New pages are inserted into a survey by clicking the "NEW PG" buttons in the appropriate location.

Page conditions can be inserted or updated by clicking the "INSERT PAGE CONDITION" or "EDIT PAGE CONDITION" buttons that appear at the top of each page. Note that these buttons are not displayed for the first page in a survey, since the first page must be displayed and therefore cannot have page conditions associated with it.

The main page for designing surveys displays visual representations of all the questions. Note that because of space limitations, the way the questions are displayed on this page is not exactly the same as they are displayed in an actual survey. Use the Preview functionality to see how the survey will actually appear.

New items can be added to a survey either by creating them from scratch or by copying an existing item. When copying an existing item, the entire item, with all possible responses, if applicable, is copied into the survey. The item can then be modified as desired.

The look and feel of every survey is determined by the formatting associated with that particular template. The template formatting for each survey can be set on the survey options page. See the section "Templates" below for more information on using templates.

Every page in the survey may optionally include a title or an introduction. If either the title or the introduction is omitted for a particular page, that page is rendered without the title or introduction, as specified.
