The next step in setting up your Event is to add any Questions that Competitors need to answer when they register.
To do this, go to the Event Administration Screen and select Questions from the More Options menu.
The Manage Questions screen will open.
Questions are broken down into Sections or Categories. Each Section has a Name, Introduction Text and End Text.
To begin we must create a Section. Complete the following fields:

- Specify if the Question is Active (visible to Competitors) or not
- Specify if the Question is to Start on a new Page / screen
Once all the required fields are complete, press Create.
The newly created Section will appear in the Existing Section list as shown below.
Select New Question to create your first question for this Section.
