Dynamic text/comments boxes are used to collect open-ended comments from the respondents when they select options. This allows you to collect additional information about the option selected by the respondent.
Typically, this can be used in the following scenario:Which is your favorite smartphone brand?
A text box should appear to specify the reason for choosing the option when the respondent selects any of the options mentioned above.
There are two ways of adding the dynamic text/comments on your survey:
1. Directly from the question:
2. From the question logic:
While taking survey, if the respondent chooses option the dynamic text box appears below the last answer option.
For example, if the respondent selects Apple then, a text box with label "Why?" appears below the last answer option.

Comments entered by the respondents in the dynamic text box will be automatically included in your Report as a separate field that follows the question it was applied to.
