    How to add hover text

    Asked by Trent  on March 17, 2015 at 11:14 PM

    To Whom It May Concern,

    I am looking for a solution for a survey.

    When I ask a question in a survey there may be further information that the client would like to know. I would like to have a ? mark where the client hovers over the icon and a further box comes up telling the client further information about the question.

    - I have attached a PNG file with a picture showing you what I am after.

    Do you have this feature on your survey's? If so what is the subscription that I need to have this feature and can it be listed on all types of questions?

    I am looking forward to hearing back from you shortly.

    Kind Regards

    Hi there,

    Yes, we do have that feature and it is called "Hover Text". This feature is available for all of the subscriptions. It can be added to any types of question.

    On the form builder, just select the question or the field then click the "Hover Text" button at the top toolbar. Put the description and click the "OK" button.

    Here's what it would look like in the actual form.

    Hope this helps. Let us know if you need any help.

    Thank you.
