Create and Edit Surveys

When you click on the gray box surrounding any survey element, you will see the Survey Edit Icons appear. These icons give you many options creating and changing your surveys. For our purposes, a survey element is a survey, a form, a section, a question, or a sub-question. Clicking on any of these elements gives you the icons which can edit that element.
