You can now edit your survey by dragging questions from the toolbox into survey. You can also edit questions in-place, e.g. the header or the response options, add more pages by using the "+” icon or adjust the general settings of the survey.

Questions can easily be rearranged with drag and drop.

Dynamic questions

If you want to add a question which is only visible if the user answered "yes" to the question before, you must first add a new question.

In the "Logic” menu on the right, conditions for the visibility may be set.

Permissions to vote, view the result and administer the survey can be managed in the "Permissions” tab. Learn more about survey permissons.

Once you are done with designing your survey, you can save it by clicking on "Save survey” in the "Survey” tab.
