Data Collection Stage: Standard Questions

Standard questions are pre-made questions that have the questions written out with the appropriate question type, options for multiple-choice and the data key filled out, and in some cases validation on the answer. This allows you to quickly build out your Data Collection Stage, but along with convenience comes restrictions too that you want to know about.

Due to the need to be standardized, Standard Questions are not editable in any way, including the data key.  In addition, some PII (Personally Identifiable Information) answers such as SSN, bank information, and insurance information are as secure fields, which have limited functionality to prevent easy access to information. If you want more flexibility, we recommend entering your own custom questions. 


If you create a data key with the same data key as our secure standard keys, the data key will remain secured.
