File Upload Limit

File Upload Limit is the File Size limit that you want the user to upload. The file which the user will upload should be of any size but less than the set limit. Also, the size should be calculated in MB (MegaByte).

Hide Autofill?

Activating the Hide Autofill feature will avoid the autofill text from automatically appearing in the Answer field.

For Example, If the user is re-taking the quiz and if the Hide Autofill feature is kept OFF, the user taking the quiz will be displayed with the previous answers he had entered in the Answer field.

Meaning, It will not be fair as he will come to know the possible answer of that question. So, it is recommended to keep the Hide Autofill feature ON.

Limit Text

Limit Text is the Maximum Character count the user can enter in the Answer field.

For Example, You want the user to enter his/her full name. So in this case you can keep the Limit Text as “50” or “100” as someone’s full name cannot exceed 100 characters.

Limit Multiple Choice

Limit Multiple Choice is the Maximum number of Choices/options the user can select.

For Example, There is a question in the Quiz that says to select the 4 right answers from the given 8 options. So, when the Limit Multiple Choice is set to 4 the user can only choose any 4 options and not more than that.
