  • Open Question
    If you add an open question to your questionnaire, your respondents are able to tell you about experiences in their own words. Open questions are used for qualitative results.
  • Numerical Question
    A numerical question allows you to ask your community members to fill in a field with a number. It is possible to preset a range of values (i.e. 1-100) and have our system check to make sure that the response is within that range.
  • Multiple Choice
    When you add a multiple choice question, respondents choose the best possible answers from the options you give them. While making a multiple choice question, you can determine whether your respondents can provide one answer only or select multiple answers.
  • Multiple Choice Grid
    A multiple choice grid question allows you to ask your community members multiple questions that all have the same answer possibilities. The respondent can select multiple answers for each question.
  • Rating Scale Matrix
    With a rating scale matrix question, you can ask your respondents multiple questions that have the same answer possibilities.
  • Slider Question
    Slider questions are used for questions that require answers on a scale. Respondents answer the question by moving the slider to the value of their choice.
  • Date select
    A date question allows you to ask your community members to answer a question by selecting a date. Community members will see a date-picker which makes it easy to select a valid date.
