Description: Describes how to use a Password Question type in a survey to display a question asking the user to enter a valid password.
The Password question is used to ask the user to enter a valid password before continuing with the survey. Here is an example of Password question.
The following are some applications of the Password question
- Securing the survey by requiring the user to enter a password in order to take the survey
- Identifying users in an "anonymous" way by assigning each individual a non-identifying password which they must use to take the survey.
The following is a description of the fields in the Password question editor:
- Question - Entry field for your question text. You can use the formatting toolbar to add formatting to the question such as text size, text formatting (bold, italic, underline), color, etc.
- Text box display length - Sets the character width of the text box. Note that this is only the display length of the text box and does not limit the length of the respondent's answer.
- Valid passwords list - Lists the passwords that the user may enter to continue. Each password should be entered on a separate line. The user must enter one of these passwords in order to proceed past this question.
- One response per password - If checked, only one response will be allowed per password. If a user enters a password that has already been used for a submitted response, they will receive a message stating that the password is already taken.
- Ask if - Click this button to set the condition under which this question will be asked, i.e. branching and conditional logic. For more information, see the Ask if Logic page.
