Design Questionnaire - List Editor
The List Editor lists all questions in the questionnaire in tabular form.
The "Name" column shows a link to the question. The "Text" column shows the question's text and an indication of a Page Break if that question is the last on a page. The "Style" column shows the name of the Question Style used for that question.
Clicking on a question's name allows editing that question. Clicking on a question's text switches to the Visual Editor, positioned at that question.
The descriptions below refer to the following settings at the top of this section:
|Pick: after name: press Help
To add a question, pick Add question, enter a name and press the Go! button. A question name should be brief yet descriptive, such as "age", "fulfillment_satisfaction". Use only letters, numbers, space, and underscore (_) in question names. Besides identifying questions, these names are used as column names in the database table where the questionnaire is saved. To insert a question after a specific question, or at the beginning, use the second drop-down and select a question; the new question will be inserted right after the selected question.
Use Add page break to indicate the end of a page and the beginning of a new page. Use the second drop down menu to point to the question after which the page break should be added, and press Go.
Use Create matrix to start the Matrix Wizard, which allows creating matrices of questions that have similar structure, including Likert scales.
Use Create grid to start the Grid Editor, which allows creating a grid of similar questions repeated multiple times, such as financial data over multiple years.
See Question Library and Clipboard for an explanation of those items.
To remove one or more questions, check the Select check box next to each question to be removed, pick Remove selected, and press the Go! button.
To move one or more questions, check the Select box next to each question to move, and pick Move selected. Open the second drop-down menu and choose the question after which the selected questions should be moved to. Press the Go! button.
To copy one or more questions, check the Select check box next to each question to copy, and pick Copy selected. Open the second drop-down and choose the question after which the selected questions will be copied to. When copying a single question, enter the name of the new question in the name field and press the Go! button. When copying more than one question, enter a "Question renaming mask" in the name field and press Go!. Masks are the following:
|replaces 'old' with 'new'
To rename one or more questions, check the Select check box next to each question to rename, and pick Rename selected questions. If renaming only one question, enter the new name in the name field; if renaming more than one, use a renaming mask, as defined in the table above.
Other useful editing tools are the Preview button on the left hand side, which gives an even clearer picture of the finished questionnaire, and the Index button, which gives a summary listing of all questions, which is specially handy when creating branching scripts.
