Question: Question Banks and Freeform

For some certain functionality tweaks, I need to do one of two things in Storyline 2: 

1.  Convert an existing slide in a question bank to Freeform (but the Freeform button is greyed out)  OR

2.  Put a Freeform question into my question bank so it can be selected randomly in my quiz.

For the life of me I cannot figure out what to do and the tutorials and videos are no help.  Can someone here please help?

Hi there,

I'm using that thread as it tends to covers what I'm trying to achieve in SL3.

Is that possible to, instead of adding manually a freeform to a question bank, import a series of question from an excel file to a question bank based on a freeform we would have designed earlier?

Hope it's clear :)

Hi, Rachel.

Thank you for reaching out! 

If you already have questions in your project as different slides, you can import them to a question bank.

You can go to Slides > Question Banks > Create a new question bank, then after naming the question bank, you can click on the screen to import questions already in this project
