How to Create Slider Scale Questions in Zoho Survey | Online Help Guide

Slider Scale

The Slider Scale question type is more interactive and enables the respondents to provide accurate values by dragging a slider in their survey responses.
In the following example, a slider helps your customers mark a more accurate value than a regular multiple choice question.

Slider scale question sample:

  1. Click Slider Scale in the question types listed on the left pane. You can also drag and drop the question type to the builder.
