Configure mandatory Engagement survey questions

What can I learn from this page?  How to configure mandatory Engagement     survey questions
Who is this page for? Account and Survey Administrators


NOTE: Culture Amp typically recommends that you don't use mandatory questions in surveys as they can have an adverse impact on survey participation rates and response quality. You can learn more about Culture Amp's perspective on mandatory questions here.

Survey administrators can mark an Engagement survey question as mandatory from the Questions page. To mark a question as mandatory, expand the question and click Change.


The Make question optional or mandatory pop-up will appear. On this screen, select the Mandatory radio button and confirm. 


The Make questions mandatory or optional pop-up is where you can change the setting for this question. Questions need to be updated one at a time, there is no bulk action to make all questions mandatory (and we recommend against this). See here why.

Impact on Surveys

Survey participants must provide answers to each mandatory question to complete a survey. When a mandatory question is left unanswered and a survey participant attempts to submit their survey, the participant will see a pop-up that they must answer any outstanding mandatory questions before proceeding. Each unanswered mandatory question will also be highlighted in red.
