When to use
Use the multiple choice block to let your respondents select one or multiple items from a set of button choices you give them.
Each question block has common features to present the block the way you like/want. More information on that can be found in the help article about our form builder.
On top of those common features, the multiple choice block has the following advanced options:
Multiple choice - Block features
The multiple choice block offers some advanced block features you can toggle on the left side:
By default the multiple choice block behaves a single selection, so respondents can only select one option from the list of choices.
By enabling the
Multiple selectfeature, you can choose how the block must behave. Enable
Allow the selection of multiple answersto let respondents select one or more option(s). Disable this option to restrict the selection to only one answer.
By default the choices are shown as buttons underneath each other.
By enabling the
Alignmentfeature, you can choose how the buttons must align to each other:
Vertically (top-down)to let the buttons align under each other;
Horizontally (left-right)to let the buttons align next to each other. If the buttons don't fit next to each other, they will show over multiple lines.
Multiple choice - Choice features
From the list of choices you can open each choice to get to the features of that single choice. Over there you can use these advanced options:
A choice always has a label in it (the name of the choice), but by enabling the
Descriptionfeature, you can extend that label with a description for example to show an extra explanation. This description is shown inside the button below the label.
You can even turn a choice into a real button opening a URL. By enabling the
URLfeature, you can enter a URL that will be opened in a new tab/window when a respondent selects the option. The selected choice is also still stored in the data set of the results.
The moniker is a feature you can use when you're implementing a repeated follow-up for multiple selected options. Inside the block(s) of the repeated follow-up, you can use the label of the selected choice, so you can clarify which selected choice the follow-up question is about. This is part of piping logic, as described in this article.
But sometimes the label you used in the button isn't usable in the context of your follow-up. A simple example of such a scenario is when you entered the label in the button with a capital first letter, but you want to mention the label in the middle of a sentence in the follow-up (without a capital letter). By enabling the
Monikerfeature, you can enter a deviant label to use in the follow-up.
By enabling the
Exclusivityfeature you can make that choice exclusive, so if a respondent selects that choice, all other choices will be unselected, making the selected choice exclusive.
The multiple choice block can work with the following branch conditions:
- Match one of the options;
- No choice made.
- 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;
- Per option: When value is true;
- Per option: When value is false;
- Per option: When value is specified;
- Per option: When value is not specified.
