Depending on the question types your users use in their presentations, you will need to install and enable more question type plugins.

1. Download a question type plugin.

The vast majority of question type plugins can be found under the ASQ-USI-Elements Github organization. You can download a plugin either using the git clone command

git clone<repo-name>

or by using Github's Download ZIP button on the repository's page.

2. Move to the plugins directory.

Move the downloaded directory to the plugins directory of your ASQ installation

Uploading through curl
