Number box is similar to a text box but is adjusted to only accept numeric values as input.
This kind of survey field can be used for when you expect your participants to answer your question with a number. To ensure that the collected data does not include unwanted text-based entries, and therefore negatively effect your statistics, we have created this type of survey field. A good example is when you want to ask for your participants’ phone number, age, or income, etc.
After adding a Text Box question to your survey, click or tap on it to activate the Edit Mode and access the settings panel.
You can easily customise the Text Box, to ask the type of question that works best for your questionnaire. Text Box offers the following customization possibilities:
By enabling this settings, you will demand the respondents to answer this question. So when this setting is ON, we notify the respondents with a visual clue, that they cannot continue to next page or submit the survey, before answering the question, which in this case is typing some numbers.

Enabling this setting will allow you to add a large, edge-to-edge image right under the question. If your question needs further explanation using a picture or illustration, you can easily upload it here. Read more about best practices of adding pictures to survey questions.
Additionally, you can add a custom link to the picture after you upload one. Linked images can act as banners, helping you promote something or add incentives for your respondents to finish a survey. They can also help you create download links, or lead users to other pages or your other surveys. Read more about adding links pictures in your survey.
Sometimes you may need to explain further, or add tips or instructions for your respondents. Enabling this feature will activate an extra text box in which you can type these instructions. By default, these additional instructions appear as a little button with a question mark inside them, right under the question text. When clicked, they expand and show your additional text.
Instead, if you prefer to constantly display this text, please activate “Always visible instructions” option. This will directly display the additional instructions under the question, and respondents do not have to manually click on it to display it.

when you set the Acceptable range of a number box for example from 10 to 100, this mean your participants can answer only within this spectrum; any number between 10 to 100. If they answer with a number higher than 100 or lower than 10, our system still collects the data; but it will inform the participants with a prominent visual feedback that their input is wrong, and expected to be something else.
