Step 1: Grid Type

In step one, leave the radio button selector on QUESTION GRID option and hit the Select button.

Step 2: Questions

There is quite a bit going on here at a first glance, so we will break it down.

Put plainly, the two input boxes you can edit define the number of columns and the number of rows.

The two buttons you will most likely use the most are View With Changes and Save & Continue.

For learning purposes, we will update the columns to 2 and rows to 5, and use the View With Changes button to see how that would look like.

Once you are satisfied with the number of columns (questions) and rows (question variations), use the Save & Continue button to move onto the next step.

Step 3: Question Text and Types

In this step, you are required to fill in all the fields. Enter the grid header text question text, and question types.

After filling in the required fields, use the Save & Continue button to move to step four.

Step 4: Formatting

Last but not the least step of building a grid is grid formatting. 

The elements marked with the red E icons must be edited before you are able to move on with your grid building. To edit the setting, simply click on either the red, or the blue, E icon. This will open the edit view of that question.

Edit the question setting to match your needs. You can refresh your memory on question types and question settings in a different part of the knowledge base!

After you edit the setting, the red E icon will turn blue.

The top of the window has three different suboptions that allow you to show and hide the formatting settings.

Show edit buttons

Toggling this button will either show or hide the E icons, allowing you to either see how the grid will look like once completed, or edit the question setting.

Show copy buttons

Using the Show copy buttons will display the blue arrows next to the questions that have been set up, allowing you to copy the settings across rows and columns. Using the arrow will open a new pop-up window, in which you will be able to select the settings you want to copy to the question below or next it. 

Use the Copy Settings to confirm your choices.

Show settings button

The Show settings button toggles the question requirements and scoring on and off.

Edit Overall Grid Format 

If the Show edit buttons option is active, you will be able to Edit Overall Grid Format as well.

For an example, you can edit the border size and colour the border. To see the change, simply use the Update button!

Keep in mind that the formatting done in this step will only render on the Review Page.

Once satisfied with all the settings, use the Save & Finish button to complete your grid!
