Text entry blank in Rise

I'm developing some material and the project owner has asked about the feasibility of allowing end users to input text which could be reported back to our LMS. We'd then view the entered text and use the information to direct future training efforts. I had to tell the owner this isn't possible now but that I'd ask if something like this was forthcoming. Are there any plans for adding text entry as a block/interaction/quiz option?

I realize it's been quite some time since you responded to this question, but I'm wondering if it's possible to have a text entry field in Rise that doesn't have a correct response (I'm not worried about recording the responses in our LMS) and that doesn't require my learner to hit a play button in order to function on a phone. If I use a Storyline block, the learner has to click a play button, input their text, and then X out of the Storyline block. Then they aren't able to see their input unless they re-open the Storyline block with the play button. Do you know of a work around for this?

+1 for this. I am building a course using Rise where students watch a video and share their thoughts. So, YES - I need an ability in Rise 360 to record the "Survey type" question they answer within Rise 360.

Needless to say, my entire course is based on this model and hence, recording of information is non-negotiable. Appreciate if we could get any update on where this feature is at in your backlog.

I clearly see a need for this (as voiced by others here) and yet it's been over 1+ years and don't know what's happening :-)

+1 for the above. I am stuck due to this. Need an ability for user to submit their response (there's no right/wrong answer). This should be stored in LMS for backend assessment. Plus, user should be able to view their response when they access the course next time.

Any leads on achieving this is highly appreciated.
