This type of question allows you to obtain a unique answer from a predetermined group of alternatives. 

This type of question is used, for example, in cases where it is required to report the status of a location (good, regular or bad) or to choose a type of activity that will be done on site ( maintenance, installation or removal, for example). 

The answers must be previously defined in the platform, so the user cannot modify the default answers. 

Pro tip: If you have more than 5 answer alternatives, we recommend you to use the “Single Option Data” type of question, where you can previously upload a list of answers and configure it as the question alternatives.

Here's a demo of how to set up this question:

  • To add the question in your form and define its function:

1. Click the "+" button (blue color) or Add New Question in the lower-left corner.

2.In the new question, define:

  • Title: Define the question title. This field appears in the exported document.

  • Description: you can enter a description or explanation related to the question. This field appears only in the app, and does not appear in the exported document.

3. Define the "Alternative columns". By default, the application presents three boxes with single selection alternatives to configure the question. To edit them, type the alternatives you want to include in the form.

4. To add more options, you must click on the “Add Option” box. On the contrary, if you want to eliminate one of the alternatives that have been configured, you must press the "x" button on the right side of the box.

5. At the end of the question you will find the alternative: Required, Related List

  • Required: you can define whether the question must be answered before proceeding to answer the form.

  • Related List: groups several options into one or more categories, making it easier to select according to the group chosen. A very common example is the selection of country, state and city:

    Chile > Metropolitan Region > Santiago or

    Chile > Metropolitan Region > Valparaíso.

6. To save the question, click the "Save" button.

Here is an overview of how this type of question is presented on the app:


All set!!
