Conditional Questions

Conditional logic, also called branching or skip logic, helps make your form simpler and easier to fill out by hiding questions that are not relevant to specific answers. You can add conditional rules to individual fields, sections (groups of fields), and pages.

A conditional field is a field that is hidden from the respondent's view by default. Once triggered by a multiple choice option, it is visible on the form.

Note that:
  • To create a conditional field, you must have a multiple-choice field to trigger it.
  • Conditional fields cannot be triggered by text input questions.
Try our conditional logic example. Select No to trigger an "Age" text field.

Create a Conditional Field

  1. First, you must have at least two fields to get started:
    • A multiple-choice field, also called the trigger field.
    • The field, section, or page that you want to make conditional.
  2. Select the field you would like to conditionally hide. Open the editing sidebar, and expand the Conditional Rules settings.
  3. Click START to begin.
  4. Use the drop-down list to select the trigger field that shows your conditional field.
    • All multiple-choice options for the form are represented in this list. You may start typing to narrow down your options.
    • Use the full screen option to open a larger view.
  5. If you need to show your conditional field when a specific field choice is selected, keep the rule equal [=] to the choice.
    • You may also choose to have the rule not equal [NOT] by clicking on the blue box containing the equal sign.


      The conditional field will show only if Yes is selected on the form.


      The conditional field will show only if Yes is NOT selected on the form.

    • To delete a condition, click the red [-] box to the right.

AND/OR Branching

  • To add additional logic to your field, click the gray [+] button.


    The conditional field will show if either Yes OR Full is selected on the form.

  • Click the blue [OR] button to toggle between AND and OR.


    The conditional field will show if both Yes AND Full are selected on the form.


Further Branching

Once you have begun branching (i.e., once you have more than one conditional rule), you can continue branching by clicking the blue [+] button to the right of the drop-down menu or the gray [+] buttons at the beginning.


The conditional field will show if either:

  • Yes is selected on the form.

OR

  • Type 2 AND Type 3 are both selected on the form.

Your branching logic can be as complicated as you would like.  A second example would be:

The conditional field will show if either:

  • United States is selected

OR

  • Canada AND Jewish are both selected

OR

  • Muslim AND Female are both selected

Alternatively, using the same triggers, you could create a setup like this:

The conditional field will show if:

  • United States OR Canada is selected

AND

  • Jewish OR Muslim is selected

AND

  • Female is selected
