Showing Feedback for each Question in an Email or PDF using Feedback variable

Outgrow now lets you share feedback that a user gets for every option selected in a Graded Assessment using the User Notification Email or in PDF, available for download at the end of the assessment. This functionality can be helpful when you want to send a comprehensive report to the user containing options selected, feedback for each question, and the score received by the user.

You can learn more about using this functionality in your Outgrow content using this document.
