Make your questions required

For higher response rates, we recommend letting people only answer the questions that they want. But sometimes there are questions that you need answered – in these cases, you can make them required.

Here’s how to set that up on any question in your typeform.

1. Go to your Workspace and open the typeform you want to edit:

2. Click on the question you want to make required, then go to the Question settings in the right-hand sidebar, where you can find the Required toggle. Click this to make your question required!

When activated, you’ll see an asterisk next to any question you have set to required:

Respondents will see an asterisk at the end of any question you have set to required, too:

Now, when a person completes your typeform but skips this question, they will not be able to submit their results. Instead, they’ll see a prompt to answer your required question:

Legal questions

When a Legal question is set as Required but someone selects “I don’t accept”, they’ll see a pop-up message:

If they try to submit the typeform, it won’t send their responses until they answer the Legal question and any other required questions.

If you disable the “Required” toggle for a Legal question, respondents will be able to submit their responses even if they answer "I don't accept". 

Required questions and Logic

Make sure your Logic is not set up in a way that someone could avoid your required questions. If Logic does allow this, people will be able to submit your typeform without answering the required questions. When a respondent skips questions because of Logic rules, the typeform behaves as if the questions don’t exist for that respondent!
