What is Multiple Select?
The Multiple Select answer type in an Input Node enables users to select one or more responses in answer to a question, allowing authors to build Modules that perform risk assessments or create checklists.
Why is Multiple Select useful?
Multiple Select can be used by authors to, for example, perform a risk assessment based on the types of payment a user selects or create a checklist.
Example use case
Evaluate your customer based on types of payments
Ask users to submit one or more types of payment. Then, evaluate your customer based on the type of payment they have to offer. For instance, if they only select cash as an option, the business risk associated with that payment type, cash only, is higher compared to other available options.
Add clauses to a document based on checklist options
Let's say you want to add clauses to a document. Use the Multiple Select answer type to create a checklist of options, where each option represents a clause. Users can select one or more options (clauses) that can be referenced to create a document.
How to use Multiple Select
[ 1 ] Content
Use this area to ask a user to select one or more options. You can use the same formatting options available to you when creating other Nodes in your module. As with other Nodes, click on INSERT to add content insert items (e.g., Conditional Blocks, Info Blocks, or Images). You can also reference values from other Nodes, for instance, Text Block Values, in this field.
[ 2 ] Text input fields
In the numbered blank fields below the Content area, you can add your answer choices, the options.
[ 3 ] Trash can
Use the trash can icon next to an option to delete the answer.
[ 4 ] Six dots
Use the six dots icon next to an option to change the order in which the answers are displayed by dragging an option up or down.
[ 5 ] Add option
Select Add option to add more answer choices.
[ 6 ] Label
In this field, you can add a label to enable users with accessibility needs, e.g., people with visual impairment, to navigate the wizard confidently with screen readers.
[ 7 ] Optional input
Toggle Optional Input to allow users to skip it.
[ 8 ] Default value
Enable Default Value to pre-fill Input Options with a pre-defined value.
[ 9 ] Display list as a dropdown
Toggle this button to display your response choices in a drop-down menu. This is highly recommended if you have more than five response options.
[ 10 ] Display options horizontally
Toggle this button to display your response choices horizontally rather than vertically.
[ 11 ] Allow multiple responses
Enabling Allow multiple responses activates Collections which allows authors to dynamically collect the appropriate number of responses for a certain question.
[ 12 ] Document view
Select Document view to display a PDF document in the published module's end-user interface next to the Wizard.
