When to use?
Textbox makes it possible for the respondent to enter a brief text as a response.
How to create?
To create a Textbox, you click the option in the menu on the left hand of the screen, it will be added as the last question at the bottom of the page you are currently editing. You will be given an option to specify the question with a description or heading. This field can of course be left blank.
Changing the question to “Text area” instead of “Textbox” gives you a larger area for the free text response and is more suitable for longer comments and suggestions.
How to customise?
