Making a question required (validated) - Validation and Display Settings

When you add questions to a survey, by default, validations are turned off. When validations are 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 validations to make a question required so that respondents can continue with the survey only after responding to the questions.

How can you make a question required (validated)?

You can make a question required by going to each question in your survey and turning on the validation to "required".
