Changing Section Type
Previous Topic  Next Topic 

You will learn more about sections in other chapters of this manual, but the main thing you should know is that Sections are used to organise your questions and to allow the questions to be displayed sequentially or randomly when running the survey.

PocketSurvey always creates a Main section for you, and for a small survey like the one we are creating now it is often sufficient. However, we do want to change the type to Directed so all he questions are asked one after the other in the same sequence as in the survey design.

To change the Main section type of a survey follow these steps.

  1. In the left hand survey structure area, click to highlight on the MAIN SECTION. You will see the questions you have defined in this section in the questions display area.

  2. At the top of this questions display are you will see the section name and three radio buttons indicating the section type.

  1. Click the Directed radio button to change the section type.
  2. Click the Apply button that appears next to the radio buttons to apply this change to your survey.
  3. Save your survey using File | Save.
