      • Note:
        • If you import questions from Question Library, your survey will contain a copy of the questions, not the original questions. For more information on importing questions from Question Library, see Quizzes and Question Library.
        • Note: When you import questions into surveys from the Question Library, the answers, point value, and difficulty indicators are automatically removed.
    • To create a new question, from the New button, select the type of question you want to add. Enter the question details and click Save.
      • Note: Questions can be created using the end tool (i.e., Quizzes/ Surveys/ Self-Assessment) or by accessing the Question Library within these tools. Creating a question within a quiz, survey, or self-assessment means that the question will only be available to that item; creating questions within the Question Library means that any tool utilizing questions within that org unit has access to them. It is recommended to build questions in the Question Library.
