  • Validation: When you add questions to a survey, by default, validation option is turned off. When validation option is not enabled, respondents can continue with the survey without selecting answers. If respondents go through all the pages in the survey without selecting answers, the response is still considered as complete. You can enable validation option to make a question required so that respondents can continue with the survey only after responding to the questions.
  • Validation-force response and request response: By enabling validation option you can see a drop down with options - force response and request response. By default the force response option is selected. Force response option makes a question mandatory/required, as shown in the above image. When you select request response, the respondent gets a pop-up in case a question is not answered, requesting to answer the question or continue survey without answering.
