Matching Drop Down - limit choices

Aug 22, 2016

Hi there,

I'm trying to create a knowledge check using the matching drop down option. When I come to preview it I want the user to either select one of two options, however, I seem to get a list repeating themselves.

Anyone know how I can just limit this to 2 options.

Hi, Paul -- Thanks so much for reaching out and sorry to hear of your difficulties! May I ask if you might be able to share your file or an example to help illustrate what you are describing? If so, please use the grey ADD ATTACHMENT button in the bottom left of the reply box and you will be able to browse and upload from there.

Hi Paul!

Just wanted to pop in - sounds like you may have duplicate answers available and that may be the issue? Keep in mind that this question type is a 1:1, so there is a choice for each selection. A Drag and Drop may work better for you as this allows you to have a differing combination if needed. Just attach your file as Christie mentioned if you'd like us to take a look.

Hi Paul!

Yes, that's what I thought you may be trying to do. The thing is that the software reads each of those 'Personals' and 'Sensitives' as different correct answers and they will have to match up exactly as you've designed for the user to get the answer right.

For instance:

Name = Personal1

Address = Personal2

Medical Details = Personal3

Make sense?

I'd advise a drag and drop, check out slide 2 in the attached.
