About this task

You can edit a survey even after it has been distributed, with the following results.
  • Added questions are available only on surveys that are distributed after this change.
  • Changes to existing questions are immediately available to users before the survey is submitted or during the retake period. This includes changes to the answers, such as additional choices or changes to the data type.
  • Deleted questions are also deleted from the distributed surveys in users' queues.


  1. Navigate to Survey > Survey Designer.
  2. Point to the menu icon in the survey header bar, and select Load Survey.
  3. Select a survey from the list and modify it as needed.
