How to hide questions and add private notes to a survey?

With ProProfs, you can hide certain questions from your respondents and use them to record notes and comments. Instructors can add notes and a section for official use only to web forms and surveys.

  • Hiding questions - You can hide certain questions from respondents, keeping them visible to only you or other admin users.
  • Adding responses or notes - You can add private notes or comments once respondents are done taking the survey by going to survey reports.

How to hide questions from respondents

Here's an example of a student enrollment form, which has a total of 6 questions, out of which the last 3 are hidden from students:

  1. Student’s name 
  2. Student’s signature 
  3. Course selection 
  4. Which group the student is in? (Hidden)
  5. When will his classes begin? (Hidden)
  6. Did the student pay the fee as cash or credit? (Hidden)
