Time limit action (time_limit_action)


Sets the action performed when a time_limit has expired. By default the action for a time limit is "Warn and move on", which means the system will give a short warning that the time limit has expired before saving the question and effectively automatically clicking "Next >>". The alternative choices are to:

  • "Move on without warning", which automatically clicks the "Next >>" button after the timer is finished but without any warning message.
  • "Disable only", which disables changes in the question so the participant can't change anything but doesn't automatically click the "Next >>" button.

This setting is only applicable if the general Time limit setting is activated.

Available options

  • Warn and move on (default) = will warn the participant that the time has expired, and then click the next button
  • Move on without warning = will immediately click the next button after the time limit has expired
  • Disable only = will disable the answer after the time limit has expired but not automatically click next

Note regarding group-by-group mode: When in group-by-group mode, the "move on" actions of the timer are replaced with a "disable" action. This is so the timer does not affect other questions on the page.
