The Matrix Textbox question type is used when you want respondents to give open-ended answers for several products across the set of measurements. Matrix Textbox comes in handy when you want customers’ opinions on multiple products/services across universal parameters.

You can mention your products/service in the rows section and aspects or parameters in the column section. For example, “Please share your opinion about these products” and then you can create the matrix in the Rows and Columns sections.
