If you have defined custom fields for your project, you can set those fields based on a participant's survey answer. For example, you might want to store the answer to "How much do you weigh?" in a custom field for the participant's weight.
You can also set custom fields manually when you invite a participant, and edit them in the participant viewer (unless they've been marked read-only).
Populating Fields in Answer Settings
To set a custom field based on a survey answer, look for the "Populate Custom Field" option in the answer settings of your survey step. Select your field from the drop-down list.
The custom field must already be defined in your project before you can use it.
Custom fields can be updated from the following types of survey steps:
- Form (for individual form items)
- Web View
If your custom field doesn't show up in the drop-down list, it means that the custom field's data type is incompatible with the answer format. For example, you can't update a date field from a weight answer.
