About Other Text Tables
Other Text tables display the responses participants provided in text boxes on non-Text Entry questions. For example, when building a Multiple Choice question, you can add an additional text box for participants to fill out.
In the example below, the text boxes are provided in case a participant’s department wasn’t listed in the question.
The Other Text table for this question would look like this.
If multiple choices have text boxes, then each choice gets a column. Every row is a separate response.
Below, we will discuss Table Options unique to the Other Text table. For more general information on how to customize tables, visit the Tables Overview page.
You can adjust the number of rows on your table, and what the starting row is. This can be helpful if you have a large number of responses.
- Right-click the table, or click the table, then select Table Options.
- Fill out the maximum number of rows you want your table to have.
- Choose the start row. 0 includes the first header, whereas 1 will skip you to the first row of responses.
Do you want to add additional columns of data to your text table? Maybe there’s a particular question response you want to display alongside the feedback, or you want to make a table of contact information using the Embedded Data you saved with the participants’ responses.
- Navigate to Table Options.
- Click Add Columns.
- Select whether you want to add a column containing evaluator information, answers to questions, or Embedded Data.
- Select the specific field you want to include.
- Click Save.
You can click the plus signs ( + ) to add additional columns, or the minus signs ( – ) to remove columns. Click and drag the icon to the left of each statement to reorder your columns.
Below, you can see what a finished table would look like:
