    How do I add instructions to a question?

    Asked by SybilT on February 05, 2013 at 10:07 PM

    I see reference in the User Guide to  Hint Box and Hover Text.  However, I cannot locate instructions for adding those handy little things.  I really need to add special instructions to some of my questions.


    I'm not including the web page URL because this is for a private community site an the site is not yet ready for prime time.Create

    To add a hint or hover text, please follow this guide:

    1. Select the field you want to add hint and/or hover text to

    2. Select Hint Example if you want to add a hint in your selected field.

    Select Hover Text if you want to add something that the user can view once they hover on the assigned field.

    NOTE: Not all fields will allow you to add Hint Example.

    Thank you. If you have further questions please do not hesitate to contact us anytime.
