You can now make any single line question required 🎉
This is a continuation of the recent new feature allowing contact fields to be required. Head to Screeners >> Questions and open up any single line question. You'll now see a required toggle.
Don't forget you can also edit every word in the required alerts by clicking Edit Alert Language on the right:
Have screener questions with lots of answers that should be in order? Every wish they didn't wrap into multiple columns on your screener links? Thanks to the stellar research team at Sonos, you can now toggle single column for any radio button or checkboxes, including qualifying questions and magic drill downs. This means the end layout of answers with an important order will be much more clear. To turn this on look for the "Use Single Column Layout"

Hope everyone is adjusting and staying safe during this difficult time. Our thoughts are with all of those affected.
Ethnio has been a fully remote company for three years and our supply chain is highly vetted, so there has been zero impact to our infrastructure and no reduction in services. Ethnio was also one of the first remote research tools to exist and we even co-authored the book Remote Research in 2010, so we're doing our best to apply our resources to helping customers and researchers adapt to remote work and research.
We're also rolling out some improvements to make every part of Ethnio accessible and responsive to support even more devices and remote use cases. The first area is the incentives pay flow, which you can now do with assistive devices and smaller devices. We don't advise issuing incentives from your phone, but you could.
You can also find our general disaster recovery plan here, including Business Impact Analysis (BIA) and Business Continuity Planning (BCP).
Do you work on compensation guidelines or plan out how much you'll pay participants for different types of research? If so, we've got a brand new robot that can help save you a ton of time, especially if you pay participants in multiple countries and currencies. Give it a try and tell a researcher!
Happy Holidays! Here's a small update before you totally check out for the year. If you share confirmed or completed participants with reception, people on your team, or even stakeholders, you'll appreciate a little refresh we've given the Participant List. It sets the stage for future enhancements to this popular corner of Ethnio Scheduling so stay tuned for more tweaks.
