Use Min-Max to limit Multiple Choice Answers

Krista Stevens

Recently we released a new feature for polls that allows the poll creator to set a minimum and maximum number of choices the participant can select when voting on a poll. Today, we’re proud to bring that functionality to multiple choice survey questions. It’s easy to set up. Here’s how.

When you create a multiple choice question, you can choose to have the participant check only one answer, or allow them to choose multiple answers. Simply select Choose many (check) from the dropdown list on the multiple choice question to allow more than one selection:

Selecting Choose many (check) reveals two new input options, allowing you to set a minimum number of responses a participant must enter, and a maximum number of responses a user may enter. In our case, we want our participants to check the top three benefit choices from our list:

Now, when the survey is live, if a participant selects too few choices, they’ll see an error message:

If they choose too many choices, they’ll see an error message to that effect, as well:

When the participant chooses three answers (to match our requirements in this case) they can go on to the next question.

Easy-peasy, lemon-squeezy!
