How do I update a question or field on my Survey, Test Platform, or User Profile?

Make changes to individual questions / fields. Provide your users with the appropriate options, mobile OS, wording, etc.

A core administrative function is to ensure that the forms (Surveys, Test Platforms, User Profiles, etc.) that you're presenting to your users has the appropriate options, selections, and wording. Presenting users with an out-of-date form may provide you with erroneous data.

Update your Survey, Test Platform, or User Profile

Keep in mind the scope of your needs. If you need to make changes to a Project form, you'll need to be in your Project Tools. If you need to make changes to a Community form, you'll need to be in your Community Tools.

From your administrative tools:

  1. Click on the Surveys, Test Platforms, or User Profile (depending on your needs)
  2. Click on the Surveys, Test Platforms, or User Profile that needs modification (do not hover over and click the modify pencil)
  3. Locate the question / element you want to modify and click its modify pencil
  4. Make any necessary changes (add choices, change choices, modify wording, etc.)
  5. Click Submit

Note

Once a form element is created, its type cannot be changed. For example, you cannot change a choices element to rating scale, text entry to single choice, etc.
