Editing questions

Louise Cato -

We've all been there, no matter how much planning goes into building an online survey, there may come a time when you'll need to edit a typo or change your answer components to make your question more user-friendly. This article has two sections to guide you:

 

Editing questions

Step 1

Go into your Online Survey section on the dashboard (if your consultation is already published, then please read this article about editing questions in a published survey)

 

Step 2

On the left hand side, find the question you wish to edit and click on it. This will bring up the question in the centre of the page

NB: You may have a number of pages in your consultation. If so, first select the name of the page your question is in, this will then drop down to show all the questions in that page. Then click on the question.

 

Step 3

If you want to amend the spelling or wording of your question select the "Edit this question' option, correct the wording in the question text box and select 'save changes' once you're happy

Step 4

Once you're happy, select Save and perhaps preview your consultation to make sure it's looking exactly the way you want it.

 

  

Editing answer components

If you want to change any part of an answer component in your question, such as their wording or options provided, then you instead need to select "edit component" above the one you wish to amend.

This will take you into the answer component details, and from here you can make amends - this includes: amending the wording of the component, adding accessibility detail, adding a reporting heading and making the answer 'required'.

On the question screen you can also add additional answer components to your question if you wish - this is done in the same way as you would when creating a question initially, and how to add answer components is described in more detail in this article.

Once you're happy, select Save and perhaps preview your consultation to make sure it's looking exactly the way you want it.
