Saved questions

The 'Saved questions' feature allows site admins to save common questions so that they may be easily reused by admins instead of having to repeatedly re-build them in multiple online surveys, such as equalities monitoring questions for example.

When a question is added to the saved questions repository, this saves a copy of that question which you can use in current or future activities. And don't worry - the site admin can add and delete saved questions from the repository without affecting any of the previous activities that you may have added them to.

Please note: Only site admins are able to save questions.
