Quiz Default Options

You can now set global default options for a Quiz/Survey that will be reflected in the Options Tab. This means you can now control and set default quiz/survey options that will be loaded by default whenever you create a new Quiz/Survey.

So when you create a new quiz/survey the options will be pre-selected as per the set global defaults. You can change these default options from the “Quiz Default Options” tab in QSM Settings.

To find the Quiz Default Options navigate to QSM > Settings >Global Settings > Quiz Default Options. Here you can configure the options and Save them as Default Options.

Quiz Default Options - Global Settings

After setting the default options, hit the “Save Changes” button. You can also set quiz options as default by hitting the “Set Global Defaults” button in the Options Tab.

Almost all global settings options are similar to the individual Quiz Options found inside the quiz. However, one setting is unique to the Global Settings. It is the Disable auto-fill for Quiz input that is in the Display settings.
