Is there a way to combine a multiple choice question and a text answer in a survey?

I was wondering if you are able to do a multiple choice question as well as word/answer combination in a survey? 

 For example

What is your favourite food?

 

  1. Pizza
  2. Hamburgers
  3. Chips

Hi @Lisa RL,

At the moment, Slido does not allow adding an open text option to multiple choice polls but you can add an open-text poll instead. To do this, make sure you’re creating a survey, add a multiple choice poll with the different options and then add an open text poll that says something like “Other”. This way participants can enter open text answers even if it’s not possible directly in a multiple choice poll. 

We are always looking to improve Slido so I will pass on your idea, thank you for bringing it to us! I’m sure there are many spaghetti lovers out there who would love to add open text to multiple choice polls 🤗

Let me know if you need anything else 🙂
