Before you send out your survey, preview & test your survey design to see what your survey will look like to respondents.
If you require respondents to answer a specific number or range of rows, customize the error message to reflect the requirement so respondents will know how to answer the question correctly.
Since the Matrix of Dropdown Menus can be large, keep in mind that respondents using mobile devices may have to scroll to see the whole question.
There is a separate chart and data table for each column choice. Each chart will show how respondents evaluated each row item using the list of answer options in the dropdown menus.
