You can use question sets that have already been created by other groups by selecting Search question library in the list of question types. This allows for better data comparability and saves time in the survey creation process. If you know of another group collecting similar data make sure to check here before you start creating a survey from scratch!

Select Add to survey if you want to use the question set. It will appear as a set of green highlighted questions in your survey. The survey creator has the ability to change some things in the question set such as the labels, but data names will stay the same as in the original question set. Some questions within the set will have a checkbox option to hide the question which makes it invisible to the submitter.

If you would like to contribute to the question set library you will need to create a survey that only contains the questions you want in the set. Then select the three dots next to the survey name and click Add to library. The survey will then prompt you to add information about the question set before adding it to the library. Please make sure you have thoroughly tested the survey logic before adding it to the library.

After adding the survey to the library you can go through and decide if you want to allow the user to hide or modify each question.
