There are no limits to the the number of screener questions you may have, however, the more screener questions you use, the more likely you'll accidentally screen out your intended prospective participants.
We recommend you stick with three screener questions for any particular study. Remember you don't need to create custom screeners for age, gender, income, country, devices and a few other key items as these demographic filters are built into the study creation process.
When creating your study, you’ll see the option to add screener questions below the Choose Your Target Audience section.
Select Screener Question to begin writing a new question or select View saved questions to select from previously-used screeners.
Next, write out a question that will qualify or disqualify participants for your study. For example, if you’d like to conduct your study only with individuals who work in the financial services, internet services, and news media communications, you can screen by occupation industry as shown below.
Select Accept for participants to be accepted into your study, and select Reject for participants that would not meet your criteria.
A note about using Multiple Choice Options:
If you've enabled participants to select more than one answer, and indicated multiple responses as Must Select, respondents will need to choose all responses labelled Must Select in order to be accepted. Use May Select if there are multiple acceptable responses but not all are required. Respondents selecting any Reject responses will be disqualified.
You can easily edit your screener questions before a study has been picked up by participants. Just edit the question directly from your dashboard and either Save to apply your changes to a saved question or Save As to create a new saved question.
You can also Duplicate to add an additional copy of the question which you can then modify as needed, or Delete a question from your study.
