Copying a Response List from another Question

You can copy a response list from an existing question by choosing it from the Copy Response drop down menu. Response lists that have been copied from previous questions are not linked together. For example, if you remove a response code from one question, it will not automatically be removed from the new question.

NOTE: You cannot copy a response list if you already have existing response codes. If you already have an existing list, you need to delete all of the response codes before you can use this feature.
