Question Bank (Forms) - Questions Tab

From the Questions tab in the Question Bank, administrators can view, create, and manage questions for use in forms. Questions created in the question bank can be used in any form. Questions can be edited, copied, and deleted.

The questions that display on the Questions tab in the in the Question Bank are the questions for which the administrator meets the availability criteria for the question category and that are within the permission constraints for the permission to manage the question bank.

Note: Questions can be added in bulk via a technical project. Contact Global Product Support for more information.
