  2. The description does not appear

The description text is not supported for fields of type question.


While the description text is not supported for question fields, there are two possible workarounds:

  1. Use Custom Help Text for that field. Please see KBA 2103982
  2. Add another field in the XML of type instruction so the information will always be visible above the questions field. For help with the configuration of this, please contact you Implementation Partner or Professional Services.
