3. Template Type
4. Template Language
5. Template Is Archived
6. Template Archived Date (if completed)

Must not be completed:

1.Template Creation Atlas
2. Template Creation Date

For the rest of the line, i.e. the data concerning the question itself. The process is the same as "How to create and load a new form template?" click here to open the article

The Question id column should not be completed. APROPLAN automatically takes care of generating the information during your first template import.

    1.Question Title: This column is required, it names your question.
    2.Question Description: This column is optional, it allows you to add a description to your question if necessary.

FreeText: Open question, the respondent will have to enter text

  4.Question Predefined Choices: This column is required if the question type is: PredefinedString, PredefinedNumber, and Muliplechoice.

⚠️⚠️This column requires a particular writing style, write down your different answer options in quotation marks. Like putting a space between your different answers, press the "alt" and then "enter" keys.

5. Minimum Question and Maximum Question, this column is optional and only possible if the question type is: PredefinedString, PredefinedNumber and Muliplechoice. This makes it possible to define a minimum or maximum number of possibilities of choice of answer.

If you want to delete a question from your Form.

This point is important because contrary to what one might think it is not enough to simply delete a line to delete a question.

1. Once your Excel document is open, go to the Question Is Archived column and enter "TRUE".

2. Go to step 2, reload your Excel document into APROPLAN.
