Question Library bug – elements contain incorrect questions

qc 558 Rep.

When I went to build a new survey today by adding elements from my Question Library, I noticed that the individual questions getting added to my survey were completely different from what they should be. Took a look at my Question Library and found that all of the elements are broken; none of them contain the original questions I used when I created the library element.

I did a search of SurveyGizmo Help and didn’t see any info about changes to the Question Library that would have broken existing elements. Is this a bug? Do I need to (painfully) re-create my Question Library?

    • I was actually having the same problem

    • We have the same problem here. We are trying to build a folder of questions in the question library to be consistently used by different groups within our organization. It is not possible if the questions keep changing themselves. Please fix this problem, or at least let us know why it’s happening.


    Hi all,

    Thank you for contributing to the SurveyGizmo Community. I apologize for the trouble with your Question Libraries. This is an issue that our engineers can typically assist with via a workaround (the workaround does involve ‘collections’ being split into individual elements).

    Please contact if you are continuing to experience these problems and would like to explore the workaround option.

    Thank you again for posting to the Community!

      I just checked my libraries and they all in chaos. Questions have been replaced byu entirely unrelated ones. It ewould appear that when you add questions it adds Q#x from Survey Y. Idf you then go into Survey Y again and change the order, it screw up the library. 

      Yes I want my question library redone as a matter of urgency and 2 I want it made clear in the documentation that this will happen. 3 I want it fixed!
