Adding Your First Question

It’s now time to add the first Question to your question group.

Switch to your model's Definition tab using the Model Designer Tabs situated at the top of the Designer Grid, right-click the NewAccounts question group in the Designer Grid, and select Add Question from the drop-down list.

KnowledgeKube will add a new question labelled Q1, which will be connected to your question group in the Designer Grid. This question will not have any use at first, but we can shape the question's purpose by editing it.

Situated to the left of the Designer Grid The Model Group Overview displays the first question group called NewAccounts you added earlier, with a 1 in the bottom left-hand side of the tile indicating how many questions have been added to the group, in this case the one you've just added. Every time a new question is added or deleted this number will update when your model is refreshed..


To edit your new question, highlight it in the Designer Grid, and access the Properties tab by clicking Properties using the Model Designer Tabs.

Don’t Forget – If Toggle Double-Click Behaviour is toggled off on the Definition toolbar, you can double-click a group or question in the Designer Grid to quickly display its Properties tab.

Configure your question by using the fields in the question's Properties tab:

  • Question Text is the static text label that users will see to explain / ask the Question, for our first Question. For our example, type Account Name here.
  • Question Group indicates which Question Group the question is within. You do not need to do anything with this field, as it is mainly for information.
  • Question Type affects everything from the type of data a question collects to the way it appears to the end user. There are over a dozen different kinds of question available for selection here. We will cover more Question Types as we progress, but in this example you should choose Free Text.

Some question types are not used to gather a response, and are in fact entirely hidden from view, gathering and processing data behind the scenes.

  • Question Keyword is a unique identifier that lets other parts of your application reference the question. As such, it should be something relevant to the question's purpose, so it can be easily identified later by you and other administrators of your application. For this example, use AccountName.

Question Keywords cannot contain spaces. Remember to use CamelCase wherever possible to help legibility.

  • Target Model Variable should be left blank for this example. Don't worry about this field for now as it will not be needed for any of the content created during this course.

When you have finished completing the question's details, click the Save Question button found near the bottom of the Properties tab.

Switch back to the Definition tab, you'll see that your new question is now represented by its new keyword: AccountName.

Well Done! – You have just created your first Question.
