Open Answers in Frequency Charts
Multiple Choice, Rating Scale, Net Promoter Score®, and Recommendation Score questions have the benefit to allow respondents to leave a text entry. For Multiple Choice questions, it's the last response option, whereas the other question types nudge the respondent to elaborate on their answer to the scale.
When adding a frequency chart based on one of these questions, the open answers will appear underneath the chart, allowing you to simply click on the open answers icon and view all the available answers.
