Summary17628: Inconsistent error message in case of soft mandatory
DescriptionI noticed in version 5 an inconsistency in the English message that appears when mandatory is violated. Even when the "soft" option is activated, this message is shown:
"One or more mandatory questions have not been answered. You cannot proceed until these have been completed."
I suggest to mantain only the first sentence.
Steps To Reproduce1) create a simple survey with a text question and set the mandatory as "Soft"
2) preview the survey
3) leave blank the text question
4) click to "Next" or "Send"
TagsNo tags attached.

Hello, thank you for reporting this issue. Do you mean the popup message? "You cannot proceed until you enter some text for one or more questions."

It should change to only "One or more mandatory questions have not been answered"

> It should change to only "One or more mandatory questions have not been answered"

I think , you need something like «There are question that must be confirmed as not answered» or something like this
