Must Answer not enforced on Web Survey


Respondents can skip questions marked as “Must Answer ” in SurveyPro.

More Information

This is almost always the result of the “Enable This Server Must Check” box not being marked on the Answer Test screen during the publish to NetCollect process.  It is important to note that there are two ‘Must Answer’ conditions in the SurveyPro family.  Another configuration issue is described here.

If you have discovered this during the testing phase, you may simply republish while marking this box for each appropriate question.

If, however, you have already gone live with the survey and noticed this after the fact, you will want to make sure that you remove this condition on the Data Cleaning Screen during import so that the rule is not enforced locally (thereby rejecting records for respondents that skipped the question).
