Slider Questions

Slider allows users to select a value within a range.  This question type is often convenient for mobile users because the minimum and maximum values are clearly displayed, and they are not required to type, making it a very user-friendly question to interact with on a touchscreen device.

Range and step size must be set when building the form.  Answers collected with sliders can be used in calculations.
