Can I change the "Structure" of the question once it's created (add/remove scales etc.)

At this point, SurveyAnalytics DOES NOT allow for editing the structure of the question. You'll have to delete the question and re-create the question if you want to change the structure. You can however edit the text of the questions and the scales as you see fit.

Will SurveyAnalytics provide for integrated Gap Analysis for this question type?
