The time question type lets respondents select a time from a list. You can set the start and end times, and you can also choose the interval between each time in the list and make some times unavailable.

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

Combined with the date question type, you can create powerful surveys, questionnaires, polls and forms with advanced date/time selections.

Here are some example questions showing how the time question type will display to respondents:
