|Summary||12088: Semi-mandatory question (requesting answer instead of enforcing it)|
Beside optional and mandatory questions the semi-mandatory questions remind respondents that they missed a question without requiring that they go back and answer it.

And : what did we put in this question ?
Semi mandatory is something like

I won't challenge your statement "Can already be done".
The wording semi-mandatory is not correct in a logic sense.
I would call it answer handling/validation.
The three states are:
I don't use that feature, but I see demand from others. That's why I posted this feature request.
For single choice :
ALl other solution :
I think a solution with user who complain "it don't work in such situation" must not be included in core. And here : all situation i found with 'extra question/extra button' are solution where 'It don't work in such situation'
The users will decide if your way is good enough in terms of time and user experience. LS GmbH wants to position LS as a SurveyMonkey competitor. Offering your workaround vs. a option to click will be interesting to compare in amount of time and hassle when the survey has more than a few questions. Not sure if they share the "clean and understandable".
Beside that I have to remark that a feature request shouldn't be answered with workarounds. If that is the standard we would have never seen a expiry date with surveys. The workaround would be "set a alarm clock and then login and click stop". Same result, but different amount of effort for the survey administrator.
