Rather than typing out the questions manually over and over again, you can use the copy and paste feature in the template editor to replicate selected questions in seconds! This article shows you how to copy and paste questions in bulk when editing templates on the web app and the mobile app.

FAQ

Why are my logic field questions not being copied and pasted?

If you wish to copy questions that contain Logic fields, you would need to select and copy both the main question and the questions within the Logic fields.

If I want to paste the same set of questions, do I need to go back and copy the set again?

No, the copied questions will remain on your clipboard ready to be pasted again, unless another set of questions are copied to override it.

Can I copy and paste between templates?

Yes, simply copy the set of questions first, then exit and enter the other template editor, to follow the normal steps to paste the questions.
