How to stop respondents from moving forward in the form?

On our typeforms, even when the question is required, it allows the user to just scroll past the question. How can I disable this, we don’t want them progressing unless they give an answer.

try this logic - in this sample i send the user to a statement IF they enter text.. otherwise it doesn’t go anywhere 


the required setting will force the user to answer the questions that ARE required before they are submitted.. it doesn’t mean “don’t scroll by this question” .. 



All of our work-arounds are very clunky.  We can give it a try… but the scrolling by the question is the real problem… I still don’t understand why they’d let you set up a question as “required” then allow the user to simply scroll past that required question… idk

the required bit is that you have to complete the question before submission.. it doesn’t mean that it stops the user from rolling forward. 

couple of things - if your plan allows it, turn off the scrolling indicators. 

and use the logic rules to control movement..
