What is the Multiline Text Question Type?

A text question allows respondents to write free text answers in response to a question or prompt. This is helpful for when you can't predict what answer your respondents will give, or you don't want to provide set answers. You only want natural responses.

To add a text question, click the '+' icon. You can choose between Text or a Multiline Text question

Multiline Text Preview

The Multiline Text question type is great when you want respondents to provide more detailed answers and allows respondents to answer across multiple lines.

If the text reaches the end of the box, it will wrap around to the next line.

Multiline Text Editor

The Multiline Text Editor looks identical to the Text Editor except that it's much simpler as it only allows minimum character text validation and doesn't allow multiple text fields so simply type in your Question at the top and you're good to go!

Multiline Text Analysis

Word Cloud

Your respondent's text answers will appear in a Word Cloud which shows all unique words captured across all responses. The word size is relative to the frequency of that word in your text answers, so below, we can see that the word "reason" appeared most, followed by "bravo" and "india".

List of Answers

Your text answers will appear in full in the List of Answers underneath the Word Cloud.
