Can I delete a question on a published survey? Or remove an option from a question for future survey takers?

The administrator has an option to hide an entire question or hide or delete an option of the question, if it is not required in future surveys without disturbing the already published survey and its reporting.

There is no option to delete a question. You can disable the toggle "Active" as shown below to hide a question.

To view the hidden questions on the admin side, select the check box "Show inactive questions

OR, you can choose to delete an option (available only if none of the participants have selected that option), or hide an option (available when the option has been selected/used in a survey, so cannot be deleted), or you can add more options if required using the Add Option button highlighted in the image below:


  1. If you make a conditional question inactive it will be shown underneath its parent even with the Show inactive questions option disabled, so you don't lose track of it and can enable it later.

  2. If you de-activate a parent it will de-activate all child questions and upon re-activating a parent it will re-activate all child questions.

  3. If you are de-activating a child question because you no longer wish to use it, we recommend removing the condition from the question.

We recommend you read our articles on the impacts of changing a published survey on the data collected and the reporting information.
