Discover advanced options of the matrix block
The matrix block has some advanced options to get the most out of it.
When to use
Use the matrix block to let your respondents choose from a set of options (columns) for multiple questions/statements (rows).
Each question block has common features to present the block the way you need, for example name, description and help text. And most of the question blocks have common options, like the required and exportability options. More information on that can be found in the help article about our form builder.
On top of those common features, the matrix block has the following advanced options:
From the list of rows you can open each row to get to the features of that single row. Over there you can use these advanced options:
A row always has a label (the name of the row), but by enabling the
Help textfeature, you can extend that label with a help text for example to show an extra explanation. This help text is shown below the row label.
You can make the whole matrix required by enabling the
Requiredfeature on the whole block, but you can also set the requirement per row. By enabling the
Requiredfeature per row, you can mark specific rows to be required. In that way not all rows are required, but only the ones you mark.
The matrix block can work with the following branch conditions:
Basic conditions (per matrix row)
- Match one of the columns for a row.
Evaluate conditions (per matrix row)
- When value matches
- When value does not match
- When value contains
- When value does not contain
- When value is specified;
- When value is not specified.
