There are various questions to add to Qnaires depending on what you want to ask and what information you want to collect from your patients. For example, a multi-select question offers your patient several options of answers to choose from. Open-ended text questions ask broader questions to get qualitative responses.

Depending on your clinic's needs, you can add questions to new or existing Qnaires. You can also modify existing questions.

Certain questions can have follow-up questions in response to an answer. For example, you can ask a patient a Yes/No question, and if they answer Yes, another question is asked, related to the answer. See Creating follow-up questions to patient responses.

When patients complete Qnaires, questions can all appear on one page, or one question per page. You can also group specific questions together per page. See Grouping questions in Qnaires and Adding section headers to Qnaires.
