There are cases when you are doing an assessment for a group within your organization and the answers you are entering are applicable to the entire organization.
Below we will focus on the IT group, in the Awareness and Training category in the Protect Function.
The value of "Largely Implemented" is applicable to the entire organization so we will select that value for the 4 first subcategories:

Select "Publish" and repeat those steps for each question/ subcategory you want to share to the rest of the organization. You will also see an option for "Stop publishing" in case you want to stop sharing those results with the rest of the organization:
Now switch to another assessment, the HOL IT Assessment lab in this case, not the IT Group Assessment that we just published from:
There we can go to the same Function and Category, Protect and Awareness and Training:
Then we select the organization icon on the subcategory you want to have inherit the answers you published.
Then under "Linked Assessment" we should see the assessment we previously published answers on and select that as the linked assessment.
Then we repeat the same steps for each subcategory/ question in that Category:
You can also publish answers from an assessment for a Category by selecting the organization icon to the right of the Category name and selecting "Publish:"
Now when we switch to a different assessment and go to that same Function/ Category, we can select the organization icon and link the answers we published for the entire Awareness and Training Category by selecting that published assessment:
Finally, the inheritance function can be utilized on the entire Function not just the Categories and Subcategories.
Select the organization icon and follow similar steps as shown above to have entire Functions inherit responses:
