Creating Survey Questions Using the Questions Service

This topic describes how add questions to a survey using the Questions service. 


Starting in Aptify 5.5.3, Aptify web interface users can also add Questions in the Surveys Panel View. See Creating Surveys Using the Surveys Panel View.


A survey is made up of a series of questions. Aptify stores all questions in the Questions service. A Survey Question indicates that a particular question has been added to a particular Survey.

For each Question, you need to specify the text of the question, the format of the question (the Question Type), and the possible answers.

Perform the following steps to create a new survey question using a Questions record.

  1. In the Name field, enter a name for the Question record. This is the name that identifies the question; it also shows up as the name for the Survey Questions in the dashboard that are linked to the Question. This name is not visible to web users.
  2. In the Text field, enter the text of the question that is displayed to web users.
  3. In the Survey Category field, enter the category to which the Question belongs (for example, General or Demographics).
  4. In the Question Type field, enter the format of the question. The default Question Types are described in About Survey Question Types.
  5. In the Description field, enter a description of the question. This information is not visible to web users.

  6. Click the Possible Answers tab (shown below) and add one or more answers to the question. You can create new answers by right-clicking in the Answers grid and selecting New Answers Record from the drop-down menu.

    • You can designate certain answers as required, depending on the Question Type. This is primarily for questions that support Multiple Answers to Save, such as Short Answer questions. See About the Answer Required Options for details.
