Number Slider

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 that you've designed. 

Here's an example of a number slider question:

  3. High end value - This is the highest value a respondent can choose.

  6. Add a 'not applicable'-answer - toggle this button and an answer option Not applicable will be automatically shown at the bottom of the answer options. 
  7. Show the selected value - Activate this button 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 beside the highest or lowest of the scale, they will be unable to see which answer they selected.
  8. Add a text box to specify or leave an extra comment - When this button 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.
