Questions are an essential element of most Interactions, as their use is widespread and very flexible. Questions are generally used to either obtain information from users, or to direct the flow of the Interaction (e.g., a Yes/No Question can be used to direct the flow toward one of two different paths).
In the Interaction Designer, Questions are answered in one of the following ways:
|The user can provide input||Users enter free text to provide their answers. The Designer allows you to set the format of the response, and assign either a default answer or placeholder text.|
|Yes/No response||This option enables users to select one of two possible options. The content of the options is created as part of the Question definition (i.e., within the Question Definition dialog).|
|Multiple choices||This option enables users to select one or more options from a list of choices. The content of the options is not created within the Question Definition dialog. Instead, this type of Question element is followed by other Interaction elements that provide the content of the choice list.|
As a designer, you can use either of the following Interaction elements to present a Question to users:
- Question element: Enables you to create a single Question that is presented to the user on a page of the Interaction.
- Form element: Enables you to create a set of Questions that are presented to the user on the same page of the Interaction.
