Why does my exported questionnaire look different from what I uploaded?

Not all file types are the same and HyperComply's AI cannot recognize the different codings, formats, and/or wordings of all questionnaires that are submitted. When a file is submitted to us, we may need edit or reformat it in a way that allows our AI to properly read the questions and search your knowledge base for the best answers - if this is the case we always do our best to maintain a format as close to the original as possible.
