The Button question is a simple clickable Button or Tile (a button with an embedded image and size options) that can drive conditions, navigation, progression, and any other case where a user needs to perform a simple click interaction.

Usage

Button questions don't provide the user with feedback that a button has been clicked, so a Choice question may be of more in this case. Add the Button question into the desired location in the project or Pages Panel.

In a dashboard, the option to force refresh is available when the type is set to refresh, that will force reconnect to the server.

Blurry Text

You might notice that some of the text on your buttons is blurry.

This can happen because there's a text shadow from the original base style. Ensure that the text-shadow setting is disabled to fix it.
