Seed questions are an optional feature of Red Panda that can be set by admins for users to complete on the homepage.
Within the admin area, admins can create the questions. Each question can be set as a free form or multiple choice question.
These questions will then appear on the homepage, where users can choose to answer.
Results from these questions can then be seen in this admin area. They can also be seen in the front end module (if enabled) by all other users.
Note: You can toggle seed questions on/off by following the information found in this article.
Adding Seed Questions
Admin Area > Seeds > Questions Tab
- Click Add Seed Question
- In the resulting pop-up window, choose your Question type. By default, Freeform text answer is selected. You can also choose the option of Multiple choice from this menu.
- If you choose Freeform text answer as the answer, then type your question into the Question box and click ADD SEED QUESTION.
- If you choose Multiple choice as the answer type, enter your question into the Question box, as well as all possible answers you want a user to see for the question into the Available answers boxes. You can enter between 1-5 answers. Once you are satisfied with the data you've entered, click ADD SEED QUESTION.
- Your new question should now be appearing on Seeds questions page. If you click the title of the question, you'll be able to edit the question properties or add a background image that displays within the front end UI when the question shows.
NOTE: If you choose the Multiple choice answer option, no answers that you input into the Available answers boxes will be considered correct, as this question format is meant to act like a poll and not like an assessment.
