Insert a Question Group into a Form Template

You can insert a question group into a form template to group related questions together under a common heading.

You must have already created a form template in the appropriate business unit, and the template has not been assigned to a project.

Review the requirements for the types of questions you want to include in your form, any sections you want to divide your form into, and any headings and labels you want to add.

Once you have created a form template in the business unit and are in the Form Designer, you can insert a question group into the form template. You can add question groups to form templates that have not yet been assigned to a project.

Any user without permission can view the form questions but cannot answer/edit them. For instructions to modify permissions, see Change form template details and permissions.
    Secured groups are indicated with a padlock icon in the Form Designer.
