- Text : Comment box, single row text, numeric input, contact information.
- Image chooser : Select one, select many.

How does this work?
Once you link a question, the answer values get merged with the profile field which you selected.
You have a few profile fields created in your community. Now, you want to populate these fields by sending the members the survey. So,
- Step 1: Create fields in community.
- Step 2: Create a survey with exact same fields.
- Step 3: Link them.
In that way when the survey is answered the values will get populated in community profile fields as well.
Note : The question types on both the places need to be same for it to merge properly.
