Predefined Answers

A predefined answer group is a list of answers that device users can select from when answering measurement and predefined answer question types in a form.

Typically, you use predefined answers to limit the answers available to a question. For example, you may want a predefined list of answers for weather conditions:
  • Sun
  • Clouds
  • Rain
  • Snow
A predefined answer group can include a tiered list where both the top level and lower level answers can be selected. For example, if you want to get more specific weather conditions:
  • Sun
    • Above 80°
    • Between 50° and 80°
    • Below 50°
  • Clouds
    • Above 80°
    • Between 50° and 80°
    • Below 50°
  • Rain

    • Steady Rain, over 1"
    • Heavy Rain, over 2"
  • Snow
    • Light Snow, under 1"

You must create predefined answers before you create a form with the related questions.
