Survey logic with question skips is a premium feature which is heavily used especially for screening questions (filtration) at the beginning of a survey.
You are conducting a survey about facial hair directed towards men. To collect relevant results it would be wise to filter all female respondents (we assume that ladies do not usually sport a beard).
1. Create a first question where you ask the respondent to select their gender.
2. Click on the question and select Logic in the bubble.
3. A popup window appears, and this is where you define the survey logic rules.
4. Click on the button + Create a rule in the “Female” answer row, and then select the rule you want to apply to this answer. In this case, anyone selecting the option Female will submit their survey as they do not fit the inclusion criteria.
5. Questions with a logic rule applied will have a number next to the text "Logic" when the question is clicked.
You are the president of a local car enthusiast club, and you want to collect information about which model is the most popular in your area. However, to prevent that owners of model A answer questions about model B, you can apply survey logic to your questions to redirect respondents to the set of questions that apply to them.
We will demonstrate this below. In this particular example, we'll use models from the car brand Dacia - Sandero, Duster and Logan.
1. Create a question where you ask respondents which model they own.
2. To create a rule that directs the respondent to the matching sets of questions. Click on the question and select Logic in the bubble.
3. Click the button + Create a rule and select the appropriate action from the dropdown menu for each answer. This will ensure that respondents are directed to the correct question. If they do not own a model that fits, they can submit the survey. The number next to the question corresponds with the page number.
Please note the following:
You can not apply a rule that would direct your respondent from page 1 to page 2, as that is the logical approach, to begin with. To illustrate this example, we'll use an example from the survey above.
In the survey builder, the questions related to one of the cars, Sandero, are found on page 2.
Since the initial screening question is on page 1, you can only apply the question skips for the answers that would jump from page 1 to page 3 or 4. You can of course direct your respondents from page 2, or page 4, or even submit their survey from page 2 even if your survey has 20 pages.
4. Now that you've created your rules, it's time to create a ruleset for the follow-up questions. If you're building an advanced survey, you can apply several layers of rules. In this particular example, we'll ask our respondents to answer what they like about the particular models, and after they've done so, the survey will be submitted.
Simply use the page selector on the left-hand side to find your question, and apply the Submit answer logic to all answers.
5. Click SAVE and your rules will be saved.
What can you do with this function?
Skip to question number
Skip to page number
URL address – you can redirect respondents to any web address (to a website, Facebook page, etc.) based on respondents' reply on a question.
Survey logic rules can be created only on the Single choice question type.
If you do not create any rule, the survey will naturally continue with the next question.
