  • 1.  Followup survey qualitative response

    Posted Dec 07, 2023 03:05 PM


    This semester I'm using the Follow-up survey for the first time. The first three questions are all yes/no/n/a and include a Please Explain box after.

    How can I access the responses (if any) to these "Please explain" boxes? When I look at open-ended responses, it only shows the actual open ended questions, not these "subquestions" that are part of close-ended questions.

    Thanks for your help!
