How to build your group framework
NOTE ❗ Choose this option, if the questions you want to incorporate into your group framework do not already exist in one of the public frameworks or your previously created group frameworks.
In order to build your group framework with questions, follow the below steps. If you have not created your group framework yet, please follow this guide first:
Navigate to your created group frameworks in Coordinate ➡️ Groups (select the group whose framework you want to edit) ➡️ Frameworks.
Click Edit next to the group framework to which you want to add questions (In this example, it is called Test Framework).
Once you have clicked edit, you will be able to edit the name of the framework, publish the framework, and delete the framework.
In order to add questions, click on a topic, and then a sub-topic where you would like to create a question (in this example, we chose to add a question under the topic Energy & Climate Change, and sub-topic Energy Consumption).
If you want to add your own custom question, scroll to the bottom of the page and click + Create New Question❓.
Type your question text in the input field and click OK (in this example, we typed: What is the % of outsourced laundry?).
The created question will appear at the bottom of the page. To specify its input fields (metrics), click on the drop-down next to the newly created question and click Edit.
By default, you will be given a Yes/No input option. If you want to change that, click on the edit (pen) icon.
You can choose from multiple types of input options:
Text (Single-line answer/Multiple-line answer)
Dates (Single date/Date range)
List (Custom created single-select/multiple-select list)
Countries (default list of countries)
Currencies (default list of currencies)
(In this example, we are asking for percentage, therefore we select the Number input option and select Percentage).
There are further attributes that you can specify when choosing the input options (metrics):
Add another input: You can add another input field within the same question if you want to collect additional information.
Title: When having multiple input fields, you might want to add a title for specification. You can do that by clicking on the Edit (pen) icon next to the input field, to which you want to add a title. The title will appear above the edited input field. (In this example, we chose to collect additional contextual information. Therefore, we have added a text field with the title: Please provide additional contextual information):
Placeholder: If you don’t need a title, but would still like to specify the input field, you can use the Placeholder field. The placeholder text will appear within the input field temporarily until an answer is provided within the input field (in this example, we chose to write Other).
Prefix: The prefix text appears similar to a placeholder but will not disappear when an answer is provided within the input field.
Suffix: A suffix appears at the end of the input field and will not disappear when an answer is provided. It can be helpful to add, e.g., when specifying the unit of measurement (In this example, we chose to type Kg).
Once you are done editing your question, click Save changes.
The created question will not be automatically added to the group framework. Therefore, remember to add it by clicking the box next to the question.
Finally, click Save changes in the bottom right corner, to save all the changes made to your framework ✅.
