Dear all

Is there a quick way to add text into group description without clicking on each question group?

I have more than 200 question group and it's really rather time consuming to click one by one to add text.

Any advice?

Thanks.

I guess you'll have to click one by one. I am not aware of any way to add this quicker.

What you could try is to do it for one question group, export the survey as lss, open the lss file (it is XML) and have a look at the source code. Then try to add a text to group 2 the same way as it is for group 1, import it and see if it works. If this works, you can do it with all others.
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

chinglnc-

There is a new Excel import/export feature available in the latest 2.0 code (not released yet, but you can access it on GitHub). Here is the documentation.

You can export the survey, filter to just show group rows, make your edits, save the file, then re-import your survey.

Sounds good Thomas!

I'll really have to find the time to give the 2.0a3 a try.
