This is also one of the most widely used question types. It is used when more than one answer is logically possible and expected. Unless custom question settings are enabled, respondents can select some answer choices, all of them, or none. This question type requires at least 2 answer options and can have up to 10. In some special cases we allow more than 10 answer options, but it's not recommended. Once a selection is made, a respondent has the chance to change their mind and make different selections before advancing to the next question by clicking the forward arrow.
Special settings for this question include:
- N/A question. When enabled, it adds a "None of the above" answer option, which is always anchored at the bottom. You can change the wording of this answer option, but we recommend keeping it close to the default text (thus the field is greyed out). For respondents this answer choice has a special behavior: when selected, it'll suppress all other answer choices that were selected for the question. If a respondent unchecks the N/A answer choice, the previous selection will be restored.
- Min required: This setting controls the minimum number of answers required to advance to the next question. By default this setting is in the OFF position. Use this setting for questions when it's important to receive at least 2 or more answers on the question, for example: "Please select at least 3 reasons...".
- Max required: This setting controls the maximum number of answers allowed before advancing to the next question. By default this setting is in the OFF position. You can use this setting on its own, or in combination with "Min required" to specify an acceptable range of selected answer choices. For example: "Please select up to 3 choices...".
The order in which answer choices appear for each respondent can be randomized if global randomization is turned on in the survey. Even when choosing global randomization, you can still anchor any answer in place by simply activating the anchor icon adjacent to it.
Entire questions and individual answer choices can have unique images associated with them. Each image can be expanded to the full width of the survey widget, or appear as a thumbnail and pop up as a reference via mouse rollover.
Each answer choice can have an optional open-ended box attached. That will allow respondents to provide text answers if the selected answer is "Other, please specify...".
Each field has a limited number of characters: 120 for questions, 90 for answers. AYTM Prime members enjoy extended character limits: 240 for questions, 120 for answers.
All answer choices can have the same optional skip logic destination associated with them. N/A answer choices can have a different skip logic destination. Use the rabbit icon to program this logic.
