Sometimes it's helpful to re-use or copy a question from another survey instead of creating a brand new one.

To do this, navigate to the questions section of the survey you're working on. To the right of the 'Add Other' button, click the upside-down triangle, and then click 'Existing Question.'


You'll see a list of your organization's existing surveys, which you can search or scroll through, and select the question(s) you'd like to add.

Click the Check box next to the individual question(s) you'd like to add to your survey. 

  1. Re-use selected
    If you want responses to new questions to be stored under the original question, then select the 'Re-use selected' button. The most common use case for this are questions we ask regularly like 'Where do you live?' or 'Are you a transit rider?'
  2.  Copy
    If you want this to be an entirely new question with response data stored separately on this project, select the 'Copy' button. 

The copied or re-used question will now appear at the bottom of the page in the 'Hidden / Draft Questions' section of your survey.

When you're ready to add the copied question to your current survey, click the "Make Active" arrow to the left of your question, which will add the question to your survey.
