Types of questions

Questions can be of two types:

Single questions

These are regular questions that you can add to interview and record a response for.

Grouped questions

Grouped questions can contain subquestions. These help you cluster questions under the same theme. In the figure above, constraints is an example of grouped questions.

Manage Questions for interviews

The Interview groups allow you to manipulate questions for all interviews in the group at once.

Reorder Questions

You can drag questions by their handler (on the left) to change their position in the question-list.

Reordering questions on the group level also reorders them for every interview in the group.

Add new questions

You can add new questions to the group. Adding new question adds them to all interviews in the group. You can add a new question in 3 ways:

Add questions to group
Add questions to group
  • Create a new question.

Edit questions

You can edit a question to change its text. Editing a question will change its content universally everywhere it has been used.

Remove questions

You can remove questions from a group at any time. Removing a question does not delete them (or the corresponding responses). They are just removed from the group and can be added back at any time.

Delete questions

If you want to permanently delete a question from your project, you can do so by picking Delete from the question menu.

Note: Grouped questions are treated as one unit, therefore, you cannot remove them. You can hide them instead.

All changes made here (other than editing) will only affect this particular interview.
