Hi @Beppe Thanks for stopping by and sharing your feedback! I do believe this is something our product team is working on now, and as soon as I have any updates on this, I’ll post them here! :grinning:

It would be great if one could choose to either show or hide the number of the question.

In my case, I use typeform for quizes and in my forms the first questions are to identify the respondent. Then the real quiz questions start at slide 4 or 5. This makes it confusing to people because when they are in the middle of the quiz they realize the number of the question doesn’t match the number of quiz questions they have answered.

It’s confusing really. 

An option to show or hide the number of the question on the published form would be great!

Hi @kellywonder Ah, that makes sense, especially when considering the number of questions they’re actually answer versus the ones where they’re just providing information. Thank you for sharing this!

I need this too!

Another relevant situation that may cause confusion among respondants is when the form jumps to questions that do not follow the numeric order of the slides. For example: I may be answering question two or three and then be thrown to question number 11 due the logic aplied to my previous answers. 
The respondant that notice the jumps in the number of the questions may think “did I do something wrong?” because the number label just doesnt make sense in this context.
A show/hide option is a must!

Hi @kellywonder The question numbers should follow a sequential order, even if you’re using logic jumps in the form. So, if you have questions 1, 2, 3 on your form, but your respondent skips Question 2, they should still see the question numbers like 1, 2. 

If you’re not seeing this, do you mind sharing your form URL (as well as which questions aren’t showing the correct numbers) so we can take a look?

@Liz Any news on this feature request? It’s been over a year since it has been submitted to Product Management initially. Thank you, I appreciate an update and hoping for a timeline or tentative release date. 

Can you please do this typeform. It is not a lot of work fand adds a lot of value to your product. For example, we are surveying elderly and neuro-diverse people who get confused at question numbers that skip due to logic within the survey. They would far prefer a simple progress bar.

Thanks.

Hi @Walter and @E Paz Our product team is planning to work on it this quarter, but they are fixing the form footer first. The footer will include the question numbers, so just something to keep in mind. 

As always, I’ll post any further updates here as I have them.

@Liz Thanks for the update, I’m sure that a lot of people will appreciate this feature being rolled out soon. Please keep us posted.

 

Just FYI that on your homepage, the beautiful slide show is showing your product without the question numbers ;)

@Liz I’d prefer if you shared this with the product management team, so that we will have a solution very soon, one that also fits with your marketing website :) - Thanks! 

I echo others who have requested this functionality. When creating a lead form, it is much less daunting to fill out numerous bits of required information when there is NOT a number listed versus when it shows 1, 2, up to 7 or 8. 

It's really a problem when you branch off like if a person answers wrong go to question 2 but if it's right, jump to 3....
