Answer components - how do I allow for more than one answer component to my question?

Kate Laine-Toner -

You may wish to offer your respondents more than one way to answer a question. Using the online survey tool, you may add as many answering options as you need. For example, you may have a question like this with both radio buttons and a comments box:

An example question with radio buttons and a text field. Radio buttons ask what should be done, text field asks why

Or this, for multiple file upload components:

To do add multiple response options in your online survey:

Step 1: Add a question

Enter your question text and click Save Changes.

Edit question section with example question filled in

Step 2: Add your first answer component

Choose your answer component from the list and select 'Add Answer Component':

Then enter the relevant details or answer options:

You will then see this screen again with your component added:

You are able to move answer components up and down using the 'Move up' and 'Move down' arrows on the right hand side

Step 3: Add additional answer components

At this point, you can choose another answer component from the drop-down list and repeat the steps above to continue to add options until you have all that you need.
