The following options are available for configuration for checklist Question Design records, with some options available where indicated for configuration for checklist Available Answer Design records. Note that depending on your configuration, you may need to update page layouts to include available options:

  • Question Type: Specifies whether the question is a Date, Multiple Choice, Number, or Text Question.
  • Order: Specifies the order the questions will appear in each section. This option is also required for configuration for checklist Available Answer Design records.
  • Question Text: Provides the question to which users are asked to respond.
  • Question Guidance Text: You can optionally provide up to 300 characters of text per question to guide checklist respondents in how to answer a question.

Users can then click the question mark icon (?) to display the guidance text. You can configure this option for Question Design records (including Library Question records). To use this option, you may need to update the page layout for Question Design records. Note that if your configuration includes custom object types for Question Design records, you need to assign the Question Text field (question_help_ text__sys) to the appropriate custom object types.
