Analyst only questions allow you to build in questions to your survey which are visible only to admins and which may help you to work with responses or to help with your analysis processes. To find out more about analyst only questions you can follow this link to our article about what analyst only questions are.
This article shows you the practical steps for how to add analyst only questions into your survey, how to move them and to delete them.
Step 1: Add your question
Go to the dashboard for the consultation to which you wish to add your analyst-only question. If the consultation is live, you will need to retract it.
From the dashboard, select option 2. the Online Survey link. On the left hand side of the screen you are taken to, go to the page to which you want to add the question and click on it. This will expand it so you can see a list of options for that page.
Here you will find the Add a question option.
Enter your question text and be sure to tick the 'Is this question used for reporting and analysis only? If this box is checked, the question and all components inside it will not be visible to respondents.' box:
Select the Add Question button. Your question will now appear at the bottom of the list of questions on the left:
Step 2: Move your question (if needed)
If you need to move your question to a different place on its current page, or another page entirely, select the Move questions link in the page options
You will then see the list of your questions by page, and you may move questions up or down from here. Analyst questions will be highlighted in blue. Click on the Move question to page dropdown menu to move the question to another page. Use the Move Up or Move Down links to move the question to where you would like it to be on the page:
Step 3: Delete your question (if needed)
If you need to delete your question, select the question in the list on the left hand side of the page. This will bring the question up in the centre of the page and the option to Delete this question is available under the question text.
