Auto skipping questions in Outgrow

In Outgrow you now have the ability to specify a time under which a user needs to respond to a particular question in your Outgrow content. This can be simply done using the countdown timer

Here is how you can set the timer

For using the Countdown Timer feature in Outgrow, here are the steps that you need to follow:

1. Once the content is opened in Build mode, navigate to the respective question for which you want to enable the timer.
In the Question Properties panel on the left side, go to the Advanced section, and enable the toggle for ‘Add Countdown Timer’. You can specify the timer in seconds. Once the set time will get over, the question will be auto skipped in case the user has not already answered the question and moved onto the next one.


2. Post specifying the timer for the respective questions, make sure you click the ‘Publish’ button at the top to save the settings.

3. Once the settings will be saved, a countdown timer will be displayed at the top for the respective questions when a user will go through your Outgrow content piece.




The Countdown Timer feature is currently available at the Question level only. Also, this functionality will only work in design layouts where only 1 question is displayed on a page.
