What would be cleanest way to add a "other"-option to a slider question (i.e. multiple numerical input, slider type)? I mean something like:

When visiting Finland, how much you like to:

Go to a sauna
|---o----|
See the midnight sun
|----o---|
Other: ________
|----o---|

I am thinkig something like a short text question and a slider array of one subquestion, but then I should remove the header from the slider array. (And how to do that?)

Hello, Jmantysalo,
I have no answer to your question.

But I like to say something general.
I know many people like this kind of question (An "Other" option which is rated)

But what do you expect as answer?
Do you really think respondents will enter something and then rate "Don't like it".
Normally they will only enter things they like.

Therefore we always recommend to our clients to rate the precoded items and ask afterwards for "other things you like in Finland".

True, they would normally only write things they like at least a little. However, they could still compare their other-option to prefilled options; "looking reindeers" could be given as even better than the midnight sun, or then as additional "it was nice too" -thing.

In this case I am not creating a survey; I just try to implement what the research group wants.

Metaquestion: Should I open a new question about removing the header block from one question?
