The Multimedia question type allows you to upload an image or a video in a similar fashion to the image question type. The differentiator here is that you are not required to provide this question type with any answer options. By removing the required answer option you are now able to have another question type that allows for a more customizable User experience when taking assessments.
Now that you are aware of the new question type you can follow along with the steps below to see how to implement it.
Configuring your Org for the Multimedia Question type
The first thing you are going to want to do is to navigate to the Question Template object through the Object Manager under Setup.
Once you are on the Question Template object you will click on Fields & Relationships where you will scroll down until you see Question Type and Click on it.
Here you will scroll down until you see the Values section and click the New button. You will be prompted to enter in a new picklist option to which you will provide the value “Multimedia” and click Save. Doing this will make the Multimedia question type available to be selected in the question type picklist.
At this point, the Multimedia question type will be available for use in your Org.
