Enhancement - Mandatory Checkbox Options

An enhancement has been released that extends the mandatory configuration options for Checkboxes for Multiple Choices formats. It is now possible to configure the item so that respondents are required to select a minimum and/or maximum number of selections.

Changes can be made at the survey item detailed level, or from the Preview Pane’s Mandatory mode setting. Configuring the mandatory Minimum and Maximum selections can also be done through the Compose Characteristics facility allowing changes to a published survey to be made without the need to stop the survey publication.

An example of where this would prove useful is if there was a requirement for a survey to request the respondent to select five items from a list of twenty answer options; where for example the maximum number of selections can be set to five and the minimum number can be set to none, one, two, three, four or five depending on the survey requirements.

For radio or checkbox formats questions, where the number of answer options are more than twelve, the answer options format will automatically revert to display the answer options horizontally, in columns, in the order from left to right and then down.
