Multiple Textboxes

The multiple textboxes question allows you to collect multiple short open-ended answers from respondents as part of 1 “main question”. You can also validate each textbox to require an email address, URL (web address), number or telephone number. You can also set a minimum and/or maximum character length.

Combining the validation settings and character length means this question type can be used in an infinite amount of ways and is both powerful and simple. If you want a series of short written answers from people, this is what you need.

In addition to the settings outlined above, you can also add a placeholder and set the question as required (meaning that an answer is required).

So there’s no need add lots of separate Single Textbox questions if they relate to the same theme. Here are some example Multiple Textbox questions:

How to add a multiple textbox question
