By default, all questions are marked as Required. This means that a respondent must select an answer choice before proceeding to the next question and moving forward with the survey.
Depending on your survey and the importance of a certain question to your analysis, you may want to make a survey question optional. Marking a survey question optional allows respondents to take the survey at a quicker pace as they will not be required to provide an answer choice for every survey question.
To make a survey question optional, follow the steps below:
- Go to the Survey Editor and select a survey question.
- Then, navigate to the Settings tab on the top toolbar.
- Toggle on the Required setting.
Expert Tip! The * icon indicates that a survey question has been marked 'required'.
