You may have a long list of Qnaires in your CHR account, and may use most of them on a regular basis. You can group common Qnaires that you use into folders, to avoid scrolling through a long list of clinic Qnaires every time you want to send one to a patient.

For example, if you work in a multi-specialty clinic with many Qnaires that do not apply to your field, you can create a folder to add only those Qnaires that you commonly use. Or, if you work in a clinic with many Qnaires per condition/group (e.g. Intake Qnaires), you can create folders for each group. Having relevant Qnaires organised in folders makes it easier to find and access them.

Even when you have folders configured, you can still access any Qnaire you need by selecting the All Questionnaires folder.

📌 Note: You can create folders and add Qnaires and letter templates, if you have the Folders permission. To add encounter and form templates to folders you must have the Folders and Template: Encounters and Template: Forms permissions. See User permissions.


1. To create your own folders, click your avatar and click Contents.

2. To create folders for other users, from the main menu, click Settings > Folders, search for and select a name.
💡 Tip: To search for a name, use the Google Chrome search function (Ctrl {command}+F) to open your web browser's search functionality.

💡 Tip: To search for a Qnaire, use the Google Chrome search function (Ctrl {command}+F) to open your web browser's search functionality.
