Analyst questions - how do I add, move or delete these?

Louise Cato -

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.

Add analyst question

Go to the dashboard for the activity to which you wish to add your analyst-only question. If the activity 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 select the Visibility option: 'Used for internal reporting and analysis only'.

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:
