Firstly to begin adding a question, create a new or edit an existing conversation. Once viewing the conversation you can drag and drop a question from the right side menu. Once the question is dropped into a suitable place on the timeline you will be presented with the type of question you wish to ask in a menu on the right side of your screen.

Now select, 'Numeric' from the menu. You should now see the fields possible to fill in for this question type.

The field 'Your question' is where you can write the exact question that you wish to ask. It is possible to style, add images and links to question(s) to involve your respondents even more with your research.

The numeric question type allows you to ask your respondents for a numeric (number) value as an answer. It is possible to add a range of what they can respond with. The 'Minimum value' input field is where you can add the bottom of the range and the 'Maximum value' input field is where you can add the top of the range. The 'Number of decimals' input field allows you to specify how many decimal places the number can contain (e.g. Decimals: 2, Number: 10.34). It is also possible to add a prefix and/or a suffix to the numeric value, an example of this could be using currency (e.g. $10 or 67¢).

Once these fields are completed, press the pink 'Save' button at the bottom of this menu. This will add your question into the place within the timeline where you dragged and dropped it to.

When adding any type of question it is possible to set more general settings, such as: randomisation of answers and a time out. These settings can be found explained in more detail here.
