How many questions can I ask in a mission?

You can ask up to 10 questions per mission 

BUT, scouts can answer that same series of questions multiple times. When building your mission, you'll indicate the number of times you'd like scouts to answer your series of questions in the minimum entries per scout field. (And to keep your data tidy, only one of those 10 questions can prompt scouts to take a photo or video).

Interview style missions

If you want your participants to answer your mission's questions once, that's just fine! In the example below, Brandi S only needs to create 1 entry by answering the 5 questions in this mission once.

Diary style missions

If you want to take advantage of dscout's experience sampling methodology and have your participants answer your mission's questions multiple times in different circumstances, you'll need to structure your questions in such a way that it makes sense for them to do so! 

In the example below, Brandi S has created 3 entries so far by answering the 5 questions in this mission once each day. For suggestions on how to write questions for a diary study style mission, take a look at these examples of good mission design.
