A Limesurvey plugin which allows having multiple other free text options at your multiple choice questions.

The Multi Option Comments Hide Limesurvey plugin allows having multiple other free text options. It supports multiple choice questions.

This is achieved by adjusting the Limesurvey question type Multiple options with comments. By default, this question type comes with a free text field for each item. This is only useful for special questions. Our new Limesurvey plugin now offers a setting for hiding the text field(s) for various items. The result is a multiple choice Limesurvey question with multiple other free text fields.

You can enable this plugin globally at the plugin settings. Every Limesurvey user can then use the new feature for any Limesurvey survey.
Check out the screenshots and demo survey for more details.
