Is there a way to send screening questions to someone requesting to join the group, either automatically or saved in the group to be forwarded to the applicant? We just set up our new group today and could not find a way to do that. We used 3 screening questions for people applying to join our Yahoo group and continue to use them for our Facebook group. We would like to do the same for this new group.

Yes, there is a way to screen potential members - if your group is restricted.
Use a Pending Subscription notice.
See - https://groups.io/g/GroupManagersForum/wiki/Screening-New-Members-Using-the-Pending-Subscription-Notice

Lots more in the wiki - especially info about logging, changing email addresses, adding an email alias for sending, etc.
And info about settings -
