What is a Multi-Factor Slider?
Much like the Multi-Factor Scale, this question type allows your respondents to evaluate a single question or statement through multiple sliders.
Why use a Multi-Factor Slider?
Sliders are a powerful interactive tool that will keep your respondents engaged in your survey. They also allow you to collate multiple sub-evaluations of a single topics, by breaking down complex questions into several categories.
How do I create a Multi-Factor Slider?
- Create a Survey
- Click ‘Add Page Items’ in the sidebar OR Scroll to the bottom of your project and click the ‘Add Items’ button
- Drag and Drop Multi-Factor Slider into the necessary place OR Click Multi-Factor Slider and then ADD TO PAGE
- Enter your question above the sliders
- Click the text boxes at either end of the sliders to assign the extreme titles
- Navigate the Question Quick Menu for additional settings and customization
There will be two sliders present, once you’ve inserted a Multi-Factor Slider into your project. One will be scaled from ‘Sour’ to ‘Sweet’, whilst the other will be scaled from ‘Bland’ to ‘Spicy’. These are easily changeable by clicking the text and inserting your new titles.

How to analyze the Quick Report?
On the left of your Data Table, you’ll find the titles of your extremes that correspond with the scales you provided in your slider. In the center will be your range of answer options, and then to the right you’ll see statistics concerning standard deviation, number of responses, and weighted averages.
By default, your results will be illustrated as a Column Graph, but you can change it to a Doughnut Chart, Line Graph, Radar Chart, or Pie Chart in the Question Quick Menu.
