    Hi, Ahurley24, 

    If I have understood your concern correctly, you would like to have something like this: (Please see image below).

    In order for you to create survey questions on your form multiple times and you don't want to add it to every question manually, you just need to make use of the "Manage Multiple fields" option and the "Duplicate" option along with it. 

    Here's how, 

    Supposed you are in the Edit mode of the form you created or creating. 

    1. Create your first question. We will base the format of the succeeding questions on your first question.

    2. Using the "Manage Multiple Fields" option located when you click the cogwheel icon present in every field, you will be able to select the fields you would like to manage and duplicate. 

    3. After clicking the "Manage Multiple fields" option, the "Field Manager Wizard" window will open. 

    4. Select the fields that you would like to duplicate and click the Duplicate button. 

    Then, 

    5. Here I have duplicated the "Question 1 here" and the "unnamed matrix field" fields. I have placed it after the "unnamed matrix field" for number 1 question. 

    Just update the questions for you succeeding questions on your form.

    Note: You may also select more than 2 fields to duplicate for you convenience.

    Also, you might want to check this following documentation for your references:
