A. Creating a Number Question

A number question has multiple elements like question title, question keyword, help content, choice options, option codes, and some validations and settings. To understand them better, we will take a sample choice question and create it on Collect.

Example: We want to create a number question asking people about their age. Now, you are surveying people in the age range 14 to 24. So you can add that age limit. It will look like the image below.

To create this question on the Collect web dashboard, we will add the following details:

  • Question Title: "Which is your age?"
  • Mandatory Question: Yes (Check-marked)
  • Question Keyword: "age"
  • Question Help Content: "Please add age in years."

Limits and Validations:

  • Value-based validation: Lower limit 14 and Upper limit 24
  • Digit-based validation: No (We don't want a digit-based validation)
