Activity element settings
This guide is made to help you understand the Survey Settings.
Activity element settings
The Settings view of the survey elements as can be accessed and edited by clicking the Settings icon located on the right side of the survey constructor when no specific survey questions have been selected.
The settings box contains multiple dropdown menus that allow to edit the survey elements as a whole.
The variety of the Activity element settings
The Settings view of specific survey questions can be accessed and edited by first selecting the question and then clicking on the Settings icon located in the bottom-right corner of the question card.
The settings box contains multiple dropdown menus, that may differ for some of the questions, but mainly consist of the following elements:
General
The following elements can be edited in this section:

Name, Title and Description of the question
Name refers to the question as a logical entity that can be referred to within data exports or when building the survey logic.
Title refers to text that is directed to the survey respondent and it may be unsuitable for use within the terse structure of the survey's logic.
An example of the question Name might be "Q1age" while the corresponding Title might be "What is your age?".
It is also possible to add a description to the question to provide additional information to the participants.
Description field can serve as a space for comments from the administrator's side explaining or adding to the question.
If the field "Title" element is left empty, the value of the field "Name" will be displayed to the participants instead.
Requirement and visibility settings
- Is visible setting is used to avoid showing the question that is not enabled unless there was a certain response provided previously (Conditional logic).
- Is required setting is used to make the question mandatory. The participant can't proceed to the next page or finish the survey without completing the required question.
- Read only setting is used in cases where the researcher wants to show the question or any other information to the participants, while not collecting any information within this element.
- Has comment setting is used for questions with pre-defined answers (e.g., Rating, Radiogroup, etc) to enable the participants to add a comment giving background for the response they have given.
Other settings in the General dropdown
For some survey elements, such as Single Input this menu contains additional settings, that allow the researcher to select the input type, minimal and maximal values, and other parameters.
Logic
Every survey element can be triggered by any question within the survey. This allows the visibility or availability of each element to be made conditional to the responses made elsewhere.
To build the Logic Expression for the element, the administrator has to choose how they would like to trigger the element.
After selecting the Expression builder icon of the necessary Logic setting (Visible if, Enabled if, Required if) the Expression builder window will be opened where with the help of drop-down list showing all the available questions of the survey it will be possible to build the expression.
The questions will be listed by their "Name" value.
Select the question you would like to use within the Expression. Once selected, you will be able to select the Operator you would like to apply to your chosen question (e.g., equals, contains, is not empty).
Depending on the type of question you have chosen, only some of the Operators may be available and other will be greyed out.
Layout
This section allows you to edit the visual alignment of the survey element within the survey page.
Not only is it possible to align the element itself, but also its Number and Title by changing the width, indent, space, etc. The Number and Title of the element can also be hidden through this menu.
Data
This field allows the user to determine the Default value or the Correct answer if it is necessary.
Multiple values can be marked as the Correct answer simultaneously.
Default value is the value set by the researcher, shown as a pre-filled survey element, which is recorded as it was set unless the participant makes any changes to it.
Validation
This feature is important to determine the ranges and requirements for the data provided by the participant.
For example, while asking about the age, the researcher can set value limits, and expression limits, to avoid unusable entries (example for age would be numbers like 150, 16.5, -20, and others).
The administrator can also add the error text, if the question was required and left empty, or to inform the participant about validation requirements:
With help of Survey element settings, the administrator can add choices, assign labels to data items, as well as assign points to certain responses, that are used to present participants with result-specific reports at the end of the survey.
