This works great when a question you want to ask, or information you want to show, is only relevant depending on the answer/s of a previously asked question. By using conditional logic, you can ensure respondents only see what’s relevant to them.
- On the responses screen, if a question wasn’t shown then it will state not shown (conditionally hidden).
- You can conditionally show any block except the first and last blocks*.
- Conditional logic works with the Poll+, Poll, and Poll / Survey form types.
- You can conditionally show any block* depending on the answer/s of a previous question that uses the radio question type or rating scale question type (other question types will be supported in the not too distant future).
How to use conditional logic
01 When on the ONFORM editor, click the options tab for the block* you want to conditionally show
02 Toggle the “add conditional logic” switch
03 Click the ‘If this question:’ dropdown and choose the relevant previously asked question
This is the question that must have a certain answer (or answers), for this question to display.
04 Choose the answer/s that that question can have from the ‘… has this answer:’ dropdown
You can choose multiple answers that the question can have. For example, if the previously asked question chosen at step 3 was “What is your favourite day of the week?”, with the following answer choices: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday. And you wanted to display this question if the answer to that question was either Saturday or Sunday, then you would choose “What is your favourite day of the week?” from the this question: dropdown (step 3, above), and select both Saturday and Sunday from the … has this answer: dropdown. This question would then only display if the question “What is your favourite day of the week?” had the answer Saturday or Sunday.
This block will only display if the question chosen at step 3 has the answer/s chosen at step 4.
* When you add a question or Info / Section Break to the editor it will display as a separate “block” – so block (or blocks) is simply a collective term referring to either a question or Info / Section Break.
