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. Although standard questions enable you to quickly build your Data Collection Stage, there are still parameters you have to work within.

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. You can also choose to secure a Custom Question if you want to limit access to the information gathered by the Custom Question.


If you create a data key with the same data key as our secure standard keys, the data key will not be available in exports.
