List Question

Let the user choose between multiple options in a couple of flavors like multiple choice, dropdown, button group and multiple selection (checkboxes).


  • Title: Provide a title to the list question, set the title type, and toggle “Title is visible?” to change the visibility on the calculator.
  • Add tooltip: Toggle this option if you want to add a tooltip to the question.
  • Description: You can add a description under the title. You can use markdown markups to format.
  • Display as:
    • Multiple choice: List that only admits one correct answer.
      • Multiple selection: List that admits more than one correct answer.
      • Dropdown: This option will show the drop-down list by clicking on the item.
      • Button group: Place each option on the list as a button.
      • Options: Set up as many options as you want with labels and add the value if it is necessary for any calculation.
  • Use images: Toggle this option and upload custom images to show as radio options. Recommended PNG images bigger than 500x500. Default option: Select an option of the list to appear first, and will appear if no one changes it.
  • Is this question required?: Toggle if you want to make it mandatory to answer this question.
  • Show/Hide Logic: Toggle this if you want to control if the question is shown or hidden under certain circumstances.
    • Visibility formula: If the result of the formula is TRUE or a number above 0. The question is visible. If the result is FALSE or 0, it’s hidden.

Usage in calculations

  • With the list question, you can add multiple options and give them a numerical value. When you use the question reference in a formula, the value of the selected option is returned.
  • When you select the "multiple selection" display type, the total of all selected values will be returned
  • To check if a specific item is selected in a multiple selection, you can use the reference QX{OA}. This returns the value of the option if it's selected. Otherwise, it returns 0.
  • To return the label of the selected option(s) in a formula, use QX{label}.
