Creating question pages

Suggest edit
Updated on May 12, 2021

Use a question page in a questionnaire to organize questions into logical groups. By adding related questions to the same page, you can help users to complete the questionnaire more efficiently. You can add existing questions to the question page or create new questions and add them.

If you delete a question from a question page, that question still exists in the library of questions.

Before you begin: Create your questions. For more information, see Creating single-answer questions or Creating multi-answer questions.
