Choice SettingDescription
Add Text ResponseAdds a text response field next to the question choice.
When checked, you also have the option of adding validation and marking the text response as mandatory when that choice is selected.
Static ChoiceThis option can be used with question randomization logic. When this logic is applied, a question choice with static choice enabled will remain in the same location for every user.
TIP! If you have an "Other" choice, and wish to Randomize or Alphabetize your choices, this will ensure that Other is always at the bottom of the list.
ScoreScoring allows you to assign a value to each choice. This is commonly used in Advanced Reviewer Forms.
Choices will have Default Scoring applied automatically.
