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, 'Slider' 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.

To set the minimum label (e.g. lowest) and the maximum label (e.g. highest) you can do this with the corresponding input fields - Minimum Label and Maximum Label.

To set the minimum and maximum values of the slider, you can do this in the corresponding input fields (Minimum/Maximum scale value), the default scale (range) is 0 to 100. 

The slider question type allows you set the scale of your slider - the step between the minimum and maximum values. The set the interval steps scale set it in the input field (e.g. Step scales value; 2. Steps; 2, 4, 6, cont.).

Once these fields are all 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.
