This page type allows you to combine several subpages into a group, for example the KPI question with its root cause questions, or a set of questions that all cover one subject. By grouping them, you can easily move them around in your questionnaire without losing their order. But it also gives you the option to easily route your questionnaire from group to group instead of individual pages. In this article we will explain the basics of using a Grouping page.
Adding pages to a group
After adding a Grouping page to your questionnaire, there are two main options available at the top:
- Add New Page, which offers the exact same functionality as when you add a page to your questionnaire. The only difference is that the new page is directly added to your group.
- Add Existing Page, which presents you with a drop-down list of the pages that are already present in your questionnaire. In this list you can select the pages you want to add to your group.
You can use these buttons to start adding pages to your Group! All added pages are shown in your List of pages, as shown in the example below:
In the left side menu, you can recognize the grouped pages by their coloured outline. The Group page itself has the large color block, and the subpages have a small color block. The subpages are shown in order. If needed, you can change the order of the pages.
Removing pages from a group
When looking at the list of pages, you can Remove all pages at once, by using the icon on the top right corner. If you want to remove a single page, use the icon behind that specific page name.
Please note: this will not only remove the page from the group, it will remove the page completely from the questionnaire.
Moving pages to another group
If your page is not in the correct group, you can use the Move icon (visible on mouse over) to select a new group. Once you confirm the new group your page is taken out of the original group and added to your newly selected group.
You are also able to create a grouping page within another group. This way you are creating sub-groups.
When you apply scoring functionality to your questionnaire, every group level gets it's own score for that particular part of the questionnaire. By using groups to divide your questionnaire into sections, you are able to generate a score for that particular section. And by placing the entire questionnaire into 1 top group, you will generate a total score for the entire questionnaire. For this reason it is vital to use grouping pages in order to use the scoring functionality effectively.
