Custom questionnaires are a group of custom questions that can be activated to be displayed during your sign in/out process. Custom questions can be used across your kiosks, QR code posters, WolMobile, and the Sign In/Out Manager.
There are four steps to creating a custom questionnaire:

Custom question types
There are seven different types of questions and each type has at least one unique feature.
Useful when a short answer is required. A text answer can be up to 100 characters.
Useful when the answers require a description e.g. details about an incident. A paragraph answer can be up to 500 characters.
One or more options can be chosen as a response to your question. You can also set one of these options to be unique so that, if selected, the other options become unavailable.
Useful for setting triggers based on the response given. Only one option can be selected before continuing.
Waiver and Image Waiver
Enter or copy & paste text or upload an image.
Waivers can be set to require a signature, if signing in via a kiosk or WolMobile, using their finger or stylus to sign on the screen. A copy of the waiver can be sent to them, their host, or any other email, as well as being stored in the Custom Questionnaire Reports.
If using your Front of House Team to sign people in via the Sign In/Out Manager signature capture is not available. However, if you have signature capture enabled, there is a checkbox for the Sign In/Out Manager to tick that the waiver has been acknowledged.
You can also set options for the audience to select from, e.g. I acknowledge and accept this agreement. These can be used in combination with or instead of a signature.
Embed a video hosted on YouTube or Vimeo for the audience to watch. Set options for the audience to select from, e.g. I have watched and understood this video.
You can make the video watching mandatory by setting the Question Pause Time to the length of the video. You will also want to set the Question Timeout to the length of the video to ensure the kiosk doesn’t timeout while watching.
Questions are added in the order they are created. They can be re-ordered at any time. The order they are listed is the order in which they will be displayed to the audience.
To re-order the questions:
- Click Enable Sorting next to a question. You can only sort questions under the same parent question at one time.
- Hold and drag questions to change the order.
- Click Finished Sorting next to any question.
