I have a complex application with multiple questions (55) for a user to answer.  I need to duplicate the questions so I can gather responses from multiple users at a location  Is it possible to duplicate the section, rather than having to recreate all the questions?

Is your App designed so that the question are hard coded as separate fields? ie you have 5 fields which are your 55 questions?

If so, you may want to strongly consider investing then time to make it into a Parent Child Relationships, where 1 Questionnaire has many questions.  Then it would be possible to push a button and bring in additional sets of duplicate questions as children.

Hi Bruce,

As QuickBaseCoach suggested, it may not be necessary to duplicate the section. If you can go to Help > Manage Support Cases > + New Support Case I think it would be best if one of our customer care specialists can take a look at your app with you to find the best solution.
