    Matrix Default Values

    Asked by simonglenister on November 01, 2011 at 07:44 AM

    Is there a way to set default values in a matrix in the same way you can set a default value in Text Box?.

    I would like to use the first row within a matrix to show an example of the type of answers I am expecting the user to give.

    Many thanks

    Hi,

    We don't have that feature right now but for a solution you may put a Free Text(HTML) box on top of your matrix or have an image explaining your expectations.

    Get a screenshot of your matrix filled the way you like and and put the screenshot as an image in your Free Text(HTML) box or add your screenshot as an image. These two will help your users visually. Maybe it can be better than the feature you would like to use :)

    I know that you may thought of these options already but I am sorry that we couldn't have the feature you wanted so I wanted to give you an alternate solution.

    This is pretty much the approach we have already adopted, but useful to know what is possible...

    Many thanks
