The slider question, also known as the Visual Analogue Scale (VAS), comes with numerous possible configurations. In this article, we show you what each component of the question setting does.

Min / Max value and label

Here you define the range of your slider. For example, should the patient answer on a scale of 0 (Min value) to 10 (Max value) or 0 - 20

The label helps you to give your min and max value a meaning. Does 1 mean bad or good? You can specify this in the text boxes. If you keep them empty, there will be no description shown on your scale.

Step value

The step value indicates how big the jumps in your scale are. Let's say you have a scale from 0-10, and you set the step value at 1, then the patient can choose the values 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 along this scale. If you chose a step value of 2, then the patient can choose the values 0, 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10

Show min and max values

This toggle allows you to display or not display the Min / Max value you have defined.

Slider value tooltip visible

When a patient answers the slider, he can see the answer value in a tooltip by hovering over the big blue dot on the slider. If you toggle this feature on, the tooltip will always be visible.

Display tick marks

Here you can indicate if you want for each value on the scale bar a tick mark or not.

In general, we recommend you play around with these settings and use the form preview to see how the changes affect your form. You can go to the form preview at the top of your form builder screen.
