Scripting Survey Questions

Similar interface to Google Forms or SurveyMonkey.

Types of questions: Single-select and multi-select multiple-choice, Open text, image, video, or voice note

  • Open text: Any answer can be submitted in response to this question

  • Single-select: Participants must respond by clicking a button if answers are displayed as buttons.

  • For multi-select: a) Add this text to your question to show how they must answer: Select all that apply by giving the letters separated by a comma (e.g. a, c, d) b) Don’t use commas in Answer options. The data for multi-select answers comes back as a string in a single cell with the answers separated by a comma. Therefore, for Q16, you might have this answer: Essentials (such as food, housing, clothing), Leisure & entertainment (such as travel and media). This makes it very tricky for software to pick up which are separate answers and which are commas as part of answers. So, rather use a semicolon to separate list items.

β€˜Other’ question toggle, which automatically asks β€˜Which other/s?’ if the other toggle is selected

Logic: Can skip or jump participants to certain parts of the survey or flow using logic in single-select multiple-choice questions
