How can you limit response selection to multi select question to a specific number from the initial response selection and not a post error display? I know there is a setting to limit answers but I would like to limit the selection when the respondent is actively selecting the answers. To avoid post answer error display. ie The respondent should only be able to select the amount of responses determined beforehand.
If you edit the question and click on the Validation tab, if you set the Limit Answers to setting on the multi select question, it should do what you are looking for.
For example, with a checkbox of 5 options, set to limit 3 answers – as soon as 3 answers are selected, the remaining two answer would be grayed out and this would not result in a post answer error:
Hope this helps!
