Question Editor Fields

The following is a description of the fields you might see in the Question Editor.  Note that not all questions have all of these fields.

NOTE: If you use the option "Other" in a question with possible answers (for example, Multiple Choice, Select Many), it is always placed last in an option list.  If you want an option to be listed last in a list of options place a ~ (tilda character) before the option value.  For example, if you wanted the option "I don't know" listed last, you would enter the option as "~I don't know".
