Create a Questionnaire

Create questionnaires for your participants to complete during the project.

Questionnaire Tasks

A questionnaire task is useful if you need your participants to complete one or more questionnaires during the project. For example, at the beginning of your project, you may want a simple questionnaire to collect information. Another example would be a mood questionnaire or sleep diary that you’d like participants to complete each day.
The advantage of using Labfront questionnaires is that you can use the Adherence Dashboard to monitor whether participants have completed their questionnaires.  You can also download each participant’s questionnaire data along with the physiological data, so you have it all in one place. 

Add a Questionnaire Task

In the Participant Tasks section of the App Builder, select Questionnaire


  • Name - Choose an easy-to-understand name for this Questionnaire task
  • Description - Provide a brief description of the questionnaire task letting participants know what they need to do 
  • Schedule - Should this questionnaire be completed one time only or is it repeated?
    • Enter when the participant should complete the questionnaire (For example: Once every day, On the first day of the study, or No Specific Date)

Can I have more than one Labfront questionnaire each day?
Yes, there is no limit to the number of questionnaires that may be created for each day of your study.   
Can I reuse questionnaires I’ve created from previous studies? 
Not yet. But we will be adding this feature shortly so that all of your questionnaires can be saved and available for reuse. 
What kind of questions can Labfront’s questionnaires support?
Labfront can support text input, multiple choice, date, time, date-time, and multiple selection questions.
Can I edit a questionnaire after my project is published?
Questionnaires cannot currently be edited because doing so would make your data really difficult to keep track of (imagine multiple versions of the same questionnaire with only small changes). If you made a mistake on your questionnaire or want to add or remove a question, we suggest hiding the questionnaire task and adding a new task with the updated questionnaire.
