Advanced Questionnaire Editing Settings

In the tab 'EDIT' - 'Questionnaire' 'Advanced editing settings' are available by clicking on the settings icon (wheel-shaped icon) above question types.

1. Display collapsed view

In the collapsed view only questions without answers are shown which in turn enhances transparency. Transparency is especially useful when questionnaires are complex and long. Use of collapsed view is recommended for questionnaires with 30 or more questions. It is possible to switch between collapsed and extended views at any time.

In case of using questions structured in blocks or using conditions, under 'Display collapsed/ extended view' options 'Open all' and 'Close all' are shown. These options can be used to close or open blocks of questions with only one click.

2. Find and replace

Using this function words that are used multiple times in a questionnaire can be easily replaced. In the first input field write the word or the phrase you want to replace and in the second the word or phrase you want to replace it with.
For searching words in the questionnaire use the function CTRL + F.

3. Add page break between all of the questions

If you want respondents to see each question on its own page, you can add a page break between all of the questions with only one click.

4. Check the correctness of the conditions

To help to eliminate potential mistakes, the option 'Check the correctness of the conditions' is available. This function is very useful if you use conditions and loops in the survey. By clicking on the bug-shaped icon application will report if your survey contains any mistakes by opening a pop-up window. The application will also show the location of the mistake. 

The application will also alert you to errors without your verification of the correctness of the conditions when trying to activate a survey containing errors in conditions. More on this in FAQ >> 

5. Enumerate

The numbering of questions is usually automatically generated sequentially (Q1, Q2, Q3…), but by moving or erasing questions order can be broken. By clicking on the button enumerate the correct order of question can be established again. This function does not include variables that have already had their names changed.
