Custom Validations

This article will help you set up Custom Validations for a question 


Background

Custom Validations allow you to use logic and custom error messages to aid the respondent in making sure their answers are accurate based on your criteria. 


Setting up a Custom Error Message

In order to setup a custom validation, you must first create the error message text. Follow the steps below to do do:

  1. Click on 'SURVEY SETTINGS' from the question tree on the left
  2. Then click 'DEFAULT TEXT' 
  3. The 'DEFAULT TEXT' card will then open in the main screen. Scroll all the way to the bottom of this card so you can see the 'CUSTOM ERRORS' page 
  4. You will need to enter the following: 
    1. TAG - This will be an easy short code for you to reference. You will need this to implement the logic later. Lets say its a message for Q3, then just call it Q3.
    2. VALUE - This will be your actual error message text
  5. You are done. If you have other questions you know you will need this sort of setup for, repeat steps 1-4 above.
