  • Display an error message if non-numerical text is entered. The default text is ‘Please enter a positive number,’ but you can change this message by typing over the existing text.
  • Check the box next to ‘Require a Fixed Sum’ to require that all the boxes add up to a certain number. The default sum is 100 but you can change it by typing your own number in the box. An error message will display if a respondent does not enter numbers that sum up correctly. The default error message is “The choices need to add up to 100,” but you can write your own message by typing into the box.
