By default respondents can only select one choice from the list of choices. Enable the

Limitsfeature to enter a minimum and maximum number of choices that respondents can select. This feature is only available if your question allows the selection of multiple answers.
Randomizationfeature to present the choices in a random order to your respondents (using Fisher–Yates shuffle).
By default the choices are shown as medium sized buttons. Enable the
Sizefeature to choose what size the buttons should have:
By default this block is not required to fill out by your respondents. Enable the
Requiredfeature to make this block required to fill out.
By default this block is visible in your form. Enable the
Visibilityfeature to hide it for your respondents.
By default the choices will be marked as
Not checkedin your dataset (your results). Enable the
Labelsfeature to overwrite these labels in your dataset with your own values. This feature is only available if your question allows the selection of multiple answers.
You can attach scores to the choices to perform instant calculations. Enable the
Scorefeature to enter the desired score values.
By default the name/title of this block will be used in your dataset. Enable the
Aliasfeature to use a different name in your dataset.
By default the collected data of this block will be exported to your results. Enable the
Exportabilityfeature to not include this data in your dataset.
Next, you can enter the list of choices that you want to show to your respondents:
- Add choices one by one
icon at the bottom of the list and enter the choice name.
- Import a list of choices
icon at the top of the list. Now supply a list with one choice name per text line and click
Importto add them all at once to your list of choices.
From your list of choices you can open each choice to get to the settings of that single choice. Over there you can use these features:
Namefeature for the name/title of this choice.
A picture choice always contains an image or emoji to show in the form.
Use an imageto enter a URL to the image you'd like to show. More information about using images can be found in this article;
Use an emojito enter an emoji icon you'd like to show. All emojis are available. You can easily search and select emojis using these keyboard shortcut:
Descriptionfeature to extend the choice name with a description, for example to show an extra explanation. This description is shown below the name.
You can turn a choice into a real button that opens a URL. Enable the
URLfeature to enter a URL that will be opened when a respondent clicks the option. You can also determine if that URL must be opened in the current browser tab/window or in a new browser tab/window.
Important notice: a choice that opens a URL can NOT be selected as an answer by your respondents.
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.
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). Enable the
Monikerfeature to enter a deviant label to use in the follow-up. This feature is only available if your question allows the selection of multiple answers.
Exclusivityfeature to make that choice exclusive. If a respondent selects that choice, all other choices will be unselected, making the selected choice exclusive. This feature is only available if your question allows the selection of multiple answers.
By default each choice will be marked as
Not checkedin your dataset (your results). Enable the
Labelsfeature to overwrite these labels in your dataset with your own values for each choice individually. This feature is only available if your question allows the selection of multiple answers.
By default the name of each choice will be used in your dataset. Enable the
Identifierfeature to use a different name in your dataset.
Scorefeature to enter the desired score value for that choice.
