Single Paragraph Box (Textarea)

The single paragraph box (textarea) question type allows you to collect long open-ended answers from respondents.

Answers can be over one or more paragraphs, you can set the size of the box (to offer respondents more or less space to provide their answer) and you can also set a minimum and/or maximum character length.

This question type can be used in an infinite amount of ways and is both powerful and simple. If you want a longer written answer 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 the respondent must provide an answer).

Here are some example Single Paragraph Box (Textarea) questions:
