After clicking Continue, the survey can be designed. 

Click Add new section to create the first section of the survey. 

Give the section a Title and Description (optional) and decide whether the section should be on a new page or not. Finally, decide whether the Section Title and Description should be visible to those taking the survey or for internal use only.
