Text Slider

A text slider is a type of rating question. Rating questions are used to get a clear view of how well you're doing or how someone likes your product, service, or business. This question type displays the statements on a scale from one side to another, so respondents can decide which statement they most closely relate to or agree with.

  • Image Choice is used when you ask a multiple choice question and present the possible answers to your respondent by using images or GIFs. Photos in your questionnaire allow you to connect with your audience on a more emotional level and it’s proven that people often respond better to a picture. 
  • Rating questions are question types that ask a respondent to rate a product or service. There a lot of different formats you can use, like Star, Emoji, or Smiley ranking. This question type is used to get a clear view of how well you're doing, or how much someone likes your product, service, or business.  
  • Text Only allows you to add a screen or slide with only text (and a media file) in your questionnaire. It will add interaction and personality to your questionnaire because instead of only asking for information, you have the opportunity to give information as well. It helps to create a dialogue and make your questionnaire feel interactive.
