How to use

Add a new block to your form and then select the question type Radio buttons. You can now customize this block to your needs with the following features.

Basic features

Each question block has basic 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 about these basic features can be found in the help article about our form builder.

Additional features

On top of those basic features, the radio buttons block has the following advanced options:

  • Randomization

    By enabling the Randomization feature, the choices will be presented in a random order to your respondents (using Fisher–Yates shuffle).

  • Score

    You can attach scores to the choices to perform instant calculations. By enabling the Score feature you can enter the desired score value per choice (more information about instant scores).


For the radio buttons block you can enter the list of choices you want to show to your respondents:

  • To add choices one by one click the icon at the bottom of the list;
  • To import a list of choices at once, click the icon at the top of the list. You can now supply a list with one option label per text line and click Import to add them 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:

  • Name

    This is the name of the choice.

  • Description

    By enabling the Description feature, you can extend the choice label with a description, for example to show an extra explanation. This description is shown below the label.

  • Identifier

    By enabling the Identifier feature you can set an identifier for that choice to use in the dataset (more information about identifiers).

  • Score

    By enabling the Score feature you can enter the desired score value for that choice (more information about instant scores).
