Validate Responses

Validation can be set up on text response fields to assure that the submitted responses adhere to a certain set of parameters. For example, if you want to assure that respondents enter a phone number, you can do so.

Validation can be implemented for:

  • Characters
  • Integers
  • Phone Numbers
  • Email Addresses
  • Postal Codes
  • Currencies
  • Postal Codes
  • Floating Points (decimal places)

Why is this useful?

Validation allows you to make sure you’re only collecting the responses you want, in the format you want. You can use validation to make sure you gather text responses, numerical responses, to limit the length of responses, to make sure valid email addresses are entered, etc.

    Can I validate against an list of email addresses that have already completed the survey? For example, as part of the survey a respondent provides a list of up to three email addresses they would like to invite to take the same survey. If an email address is already associated with a completed survey they are told the email address has already been used to complete the survey.
