The numeric question type asks the participant to enter a number using the app's onscreen numeric key pad. It allows positive whole and floating-point numbers to be entered by respondents.
The iSURVEY app makes it easy to collect numeric data even when your iOS or Android device is offline. Simply sync the numeric data when your device is back online.
Character length validation specifies the minimum or maximum number of numeric characters a response must be before a respondent can proceed to the next question. For example a telephone number question can be setup to ensure the minimum character length is at least 8 numbers.
By default a numeric question must be an integer. However you can set up numeric key pad validation to allow floating-point numbers with a specific number of decimal places.
Numeric questions can be set up with text labels that are displayed before or after the numeric data collection field. The optional prefix or suffix label can be used to indicate the appropriate type of answer to be entered by participants using the app. For example a label could include numeric units of measure including feet or metres, currency $ vs GPB or a % symbol for percentages.
You can choose whether or not a numeric question is mandatory.
