Upload Questions using an Excel template

Assessments carry a variety of questions, and creating questions one by one could be a tedious task.

To resolve this problem, we suggest using templates that can be downloaded from the website and, once completed, can be uploaded back to create the set of questions without spending much time.

Follow the steps below to learn how to create questions using an Excel template:-

After logging in, your dashboard will be displayed; click on Assessment from the top panel.

Click on the Excel template to download the template.
