When editing a survey form it can be helpful to select multiple questions for deleting them or cloning them. Cloning or copying is a great way to duplicate lists of answer choices.  Performing the delete and clone actions on sections and repeaters gives the added benefit of acting on them as complete units.

The image below shows the basic steps of selecting the desired questions then performing the action of delete or clone. The text that follows details the operation of the features.

1. Select the Question(s)

The process for deleting and cloning groups of questions both start with selecting the desired question. In the image above you can see that every question has a checkbox at the end of its row.
PRO TIP: When you select Section or Repeater the questions within them are all selected and affected by the action.

2. Perform the Action

When you select the checkbox the action options appear at the top of your screen in blue. Once you have selected all the desired questions, click on 'Delete' or 'Clone' to perform the action.


The 'Delete' action will delete all selected questions.
Warning: There is no undo and the survey is continuously saved to the cloud as you edit. Make sure you really want to delete all the selected questions before you click 'Delete.' It is a single step operation.


The Clone action will make a copy of all selected questions. Each selected question will be copied and inserted above the original question.

Exit the Operation

To exit the bulk edit function either perform the action or Deselect all the check-boxes.
