Hi,

Can I set a condition on a question to determine whether it should be mandatory or not (i.e. if rated between 1 and 4, question should be mandatory)? Not set the question to mandatory when adding it, but already added! ;)

Any assistance is appreciated.

Sorry, that is not possible. conditions always refer to a previous question and can't be used to make a question mandatory.

Thanks for the quick reply. However just making sure my question was well comprehended.
If condition always refer to a previous question, can't based on the previous question response the subsequent question be turned on or off to mandatory? Just making sure and possibly take it up as a feature request.

Thank you again.

The only way to do this "out-of-the-box" would be to create two copies of the question - one mandatory and one not - and then show the appropriate copy depending on the answer to the condition question. Then you could merge the data from the copies in analysis.
