Multiple Dropdowns (Selects)

The multiple dropdowns (selects) question type allows you to ask multiple closed-ended questions linked to 1 “main question”. Respondents select an answer from a drop-down list for each sub-question.

This question type is similar to the single dropdown (select) question type, but you can add as many rows of dropdowns/selects as you like.

When respondents click on a dropdown, a box will appear allowing respondents to choose an answer choice. A search bar will display above the answer choices, allowing respondents to quickly search through the answer choices.

You can add as many answer choices as you need – but when working with very long lists, the format should be familiar to respondents. For example, country names, state/counties, or another familiar format.

Here are some example questions using the multiple dropdowns (selects) question type:
