Additional information about groups
Loops and blocks are question items. You can add question items either in the Routings pane or in the Questions pane. If you add them in the Routings pane UNICOM Intelligence Author automatically adds them to the Questions pane. When you delete a loop or block from the Routings pane, any questions inside it are automatically deleted from the Questions pane.
Sections and pages are routing items, which define the order in which questions appear in the questionnaire. You can add them only in the Routings pane. They are not added to the Questions pane. When you delete a section or page from the Routings pane, any questions located inside remain in the Questions pane.
Groups are not displayed when you open the questionnaire file in UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper. In the case of loops and blocks, all questions inside the loop or block are also omitted. In the case of pages, the page is not displayed but questions inside it are displayed. You cannot open a file containing sections in UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper.
