Number Slider

This feature is included in all plans.

A number 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. Instead of vague assumptions, you get an exact number or a score on a scale which you've designed. 

Here's an example of a number slider question:

  1. Low end value - This is the lowest value a respondent can choose. 
  2. Low end label - This is the label for the lowest value, on the left side of the slider. Use a text label to give the values more meaning.
  3. High end value - This is the highest value a respondent can choose. 
  4. High end label - This is the label for the highest value, on the right side of the slider. Add a text label to give the values more meaning.
  5. Start position value - This is the value of the place where the indicator button starts.
  6. Show the selected value - Turn on show the selected value to show the selected number right above the slider (see image below). If this feature is switched off, the indicated answer won't show on the slider and if the respondent has selected a number besides the highest or lowest of the scale, they will be unable to see which answer they selected.
  7. Add a text box to specify or leave an extra comment - When this feature is switched on, you'll be able to add your own text to ask respondents to give more information.


Here's what your question will look like when you're showing the selected value and have a comment box.
