Creating a new routing
All the questions added so far have been placed in a default routing, which is called NewRouting. The routing contains not just the questions that you create, but information about the order in which they appear in the finished questionnaire, as well as any information that is required to direct the sequence of questions, such as a jump to another question or to the end of the interview.
You can have more than one routing in a single questionnaire file, so that you can create a set of common questions and then direct them to different output formats. In this example, the questionnaire will be released in two formats, online and paper, using most of the same questions. You can use the same questionnaire file for both formats by creating a separate routing for each. To do this, you need to create a new routing, give each of the routings a suitable name, and copy the questions from the existing routing to the new one.
