After you have chosen from a predesigned survey on Survey Crest, the next step is to polish the questions in it. You might need to replace them with some of your own.

Why Add Or Delete At All?

Simply because it is a survey about YOUR business and predesigned questions in a template might not do it justice. Even if you have used scales or yes/no questions, there are bound to be some sections that might seem redundant.

Keep in mind, your business interests lie in asking the right questions and not questions that miss the mark completely or worse, tick your customers off. For example, if customers have already used a product, a premade question that asks them if they have is useless. You can however, replace this question with one that, say, asks participants their opinions about your customer service.

Fortunately, Survey Crest has options that enable users to delete and add questions in the templates they choose.

After you have selected your template, click on the “Continue to Edit” option below. You will be able to add or delete a question in the “Survey Editor” section.

Deleting A Question

In order to delete a question from your chosen survey, follow these steps —

1. Click on the bin icon next to the question you want to omit and it will be deleted.
