TOPIC: Removing a field from question

Removing a field from question 4 years 3 months ago #41205

When you enter a Yes/No question, the survey tool automatically generates a field for "no answer". How can I remove that answer?

You could just use a normal question and put yes and no as items, how about that?

By the way, when I create a yes/no question, at least in the preview, there is no "no answer" item.
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

It can be disabled in the Global settings -> Miscellaneous screen.

The "No Answer" option will appear if the question is non-mandatory and it is enabled in Global settings -> Miscellaneous.

Ha, learned something new too. Must have switched this off somehow... ;-)

I was going back around to the "hide" the "No Answer" button. It is a standard field in all the answer strings. Even the array questions. Is there a way to hide that on all questions? Is this in the template editor anywhere?

Thanks!

The "No answer" option appears for all mandatory questions, right?

To switch this off go to "Global settings" -> "Miscellaneous" -> "Show 'no answer' option for non-mandatory questions: NO"

That should solve your problem.

I realize that this is a very basic question, and I apologize for that. I do not see in the documentation or in the survey structure where the "Global Setting" functions are located? Is that a programming item? Is it in the "Templates" area?

Thanks!

Nevermind - you have to be a "super administrator" to complete this function.

Exactly, so you managed to change this, I assume?
