To ensure that participants must provide responses to certain questions, mark these questions as mandatory. If participants do not respond to these questions, they will not be allowed to proceed to the next pages of your survey.
Keep in mind that this is a powerful feature, and use the mandatory setting for only the answers you need most. Participants who become frustrated that they can’t move past certain questions without answering might drop out of the survey completely.
A few simple steps will help you to mark questions as mandatory:
- Select to create a survey or edit an existing survey, under the Design tab.
- Create or navigate to the question you want to mark as mandatory.
- Hover on the question text and select Mandatory:
Once the mandatory option is set, a red asterisk will appear to the left of the question.
