Using your Multiple Choice block to segment your ranked results

The Multiple Choice results allow you to recalculate your stack ranking to include only the participants that selected a specific answer. For example, this could let you compare what's most important to your Free users versus your Premium customers. For more info, check out our guide to segmentation on OpinionX.

How do I change Multiple Choice blocks to allow multiple answers?

By changing the "Allow multiple" toggle in the bottom right hand corner of the Multiple Choice setup block, you can decide whether participants are allowed to select just one or multiple of the available options. By default, this toggle is set to single-select.
