A template question is a question you create that you can re-use in multiple questionnaires. This saves you from having to recreate the same question for every questionnaire. They can be created while creating a new question on a questionnaire by clicking Create New Question or in the Template Questions tab.
Within the Template Questions tab are your pre-configured questions. To create a new template question from here, click the Add button.
Creating a Template Question from within a Questionnaire
While configuring a Questionnaire, you may create a new question and choose to save it as a new Template Question. To do this, click the checkbox prior to clicking Save when creating a new question, or while editing a question that is already a part of a questionnaire.
*The same checkbox will appear when creating a new question, or editing an existing question that is already added to a Questionnaire.
*Settings are not configured on Template Questions themselves. The settings can only be configured on questions within a questionnaire.
Adding Template Questions to a Questionnaire
While you are configuring a Questionnaire, you will have to option to create a new question or add existing questions from your template questions. To add one or more questions from your template questions, click on Add from Templates.
A pop-up window will appear with template questions that you have previously created, allowing you to select and add more than one template question at a time.
Modifying a Template Question
*Modifying a Template Question will not modify ones that have already been added to questionnaires. This means that if you modify a template question that has been previously added to a Questionnaire, it will not change on the Questionnaire. If you want these new modifications to be reflected on existing Questionnaires, you must remove the old question from the Questionnaire and re-add it with the newly modified Template Question.
