Creating survey sections

Create survey sections to organize your questions into folders. You can do this in the Question Library or while creating a survey. Both of these areas are identical in functionality: one creates folders within the Question Library, while the other creates folders within a survey.

You can also import sections from the Question Library directly into a quiz, survey, or self assessment. Importing a section transfers the section folder and any properties associated with the section (section name, messages, images, or feedback). You can still import all of the questions within a section separate from the section itself by creating the section within a quiz and clicking Add/Edit Questions.

Note  Although you can create subsections within sections, we recommend you keep question organization simple and intuitive.

    • insert a line break after section name  Inserts extra space below the section name.

Note  Managing survey sections (renaming, reordering, publishing, deleting) is similar to managing survey questions. See Managing survey questions for more information on editing survey sections.
