To begin creating questions, after a product is created, click on the Product Builder tab. The following appears:
The first section in the screenshot above is 'Questions Set 1.' You can highlight the section name and rename to anything you choose. A “section” is displayed as a separate page on a portal. Tip: Limit the number of questions in each section to one topic to reduce scrolling.
To begin creating questions, click on the right-angle caret to the left of the section, this will point the caret down and expand the question area.
From here, you can edit section and sub-section titles, as well as add sections, sub-sections, questions, loops, or embedded question sets.
A unique QID is automatically generated. This QID can be modified and used across multiple products.
Add the question text into the 'Question Text' field.
You can also mark a question as required or set a default answer by switching the toggles on or off. Conditional logic can be added to any question.
