Can I make it so all Qs need to be answered before submitting, but still enable people to swipe between Qs?

I know I can set all Qs as ‘required’, but then people can’t swipe between Qs and hence fill the form in a bit at a time.

Has anyone found a way around this?

thanks

Michael

Hi Michael,

If you are using Android devices, one option would be to use one or more
’question lists’ to have certain questions appear together on a single
screen. This way, the user can answer the questions on a given screen in
any order before swiping forward to the next screen. If you don’t have too
many questions, putting them all on a single screen may be feasible. See a
description of question lists on our help page here

Hi, Michael,

I think the approach that Kriti recommended would be the best. There is
also a feature called “Go To Prompt” you can use to navigate around in a
form. When you are inside a form click on the settings/menu button and then
choose Go To Prompt. This allows you to skip around, with the caveat that
it makes it easier to miss questions which don’t show up right away due to
display conditions. If you try to submit without answering a required
question you will be directed back to the unanswered question.

Hope this helps,

Jeremy
