Hello.

So I am running a user study using Limesurvey. I accidentally deleted one of my question groups. Luckily, I had a backup .lss file of the survey.

So I created a new survey, and imported from the file. But I am not seeing a way to copy the questions into a different survey.

How can I restore the questions from a question group in my old backup into my newer survey? There are a lot of them so it would be a huge hassle to retype them all (hence the backup file)

Just export the related question group as .lsg file and import it at the old survey.
Support us, too. Donate to the LimeSurvey project and help keep us going!

Thanks. I spotted the export easily, but I'm not seeing an import. I found a way to import entire surveys via the new survey. Or if I create a question, if I had an individual question in a .csv, I could import that, but I'm not seeing where I can go to import the lsg file.

Could you please describe where in the menu it is?
