Question Themes are used to group questions in a survey together. Think of the Themes as being the Survey Objective areas. Question Themes are not visible to survey participants.
Themes can be useful for grouping surveys questions when designing surveys and for reporting. As an example, obtaining demographic information is a likely objective. So, a theme called "Demographic" could be created and then assigned to individual questions.
Add or Edit a Question Theme
A survey question may have more than one theme attached to it.
- To create a new Question Theme, go the TOOLS/Themes menu and click on the "+ New Theme" button at the top of the page.
- Themes can be colour coded to make planning and reporting easier.
- To edit a Theme, click on the edit button. Editing a Theme that is being used in a survey will change the theme in that survey. However, the Theme will not be changed in any launched projects.
- Themes can be deleted by clicking on the delete button. A warning message and options will appear if you delete a Theme that is used in a survey. However, the Theme will not be changed in any launched projects.
