Skip-logic questions enable participants to skip over following question(s) to a different question based on their answers to the trigger question.
Not sure if you need skip-logic? Find out how it works here!
First, your survey must have multiple steps (i.e. pages – at least 3) for skip-logic to work. If your project only has one step, then all questions are visible to the participant on a single page, thus they cannot skip to another question. The question you are skipping to has to be located on a subsequent step, following the questions you are skipping over.
👉Note: The question you are skipping from must be the last question on the page, with the skip-logic function directly below it.
How to create a skip-logic rule:
Click the green Add Question button and select Skip-Logic Rule from the pop-up window.
Click the drop down menu under If User Selects and locate the question & answer combo that you want to trigger the Skip-Logic. In this scenario, I've selected the answer "No" to the question "Will you be celebrating the holidays?"
Next, select Skip to question and choose the question you'd like the participant to skip to from the drop down menu.
👉Remember: The questions you are skipping over must be confined to (a) step(s) between the trigger question and the question you are skipping to. You can skip over multiple steps with one skip-logic rule.
Step 1 = trigger question, Step 2 = question(s) to skip, Step 3 = question to skip to
Step 1 = trigger question Steps 2-5 = questions to skip Step 6 = question to skip to
In this case, Instead of answering questions on how they'll be celebrating the holidays, (which they've indicated they won't be,) those who answered "No" will be directed to the confirmation message at the end of the survey. Those who select "Yes" will continue to the next question on the survey. There is no skip-logic for the "Yes" answer beause they won't need to skip over the holiday questions.
Click the blue Save Skip Logic button.
Note: The Skip-Logic should always go directly after the question you are skipping from. In this instance, the skip-logic rule should go right after "Will you be celbrating the holidays?" on your survey.
The Skip-Logic rule will then appear at the bottom of your survey. You may need to re-arrange your questions so that the question you want to trigger your Skip-Logic sits directly above the Skip-Logic rule box.
Hover over the 3 horizontal lines in the right corner of the question box. Your cursor will become crossed arrows. This will allow you to drag the trigger question box down the list and drop it above your skip-logic. When you're finished, it should look like the example below: The trigger question, followed by the skip-logic function at the bottom of the step page.
Skip-Logic rules are in a box just like questions, but are only visible to admins. They will not display on the public-facing survey.
