Adding survey logic
In your questionnaire you can choose when it is necessary to show a question depending on which answers the respondent has selected. This is called Routing.
Ask this question if
In the example questionnaire, there are two questions, Q5 and Q6, where the second question should only be asked if the respondent selects Yes in the first question.
Here, Q5 asks the respondent whether they would like further information. They can choose to answer Yes or No. If they answer Yes, then Q6 is displayed, and asks which information they would like to receive, otherwise the respondent skips Q6.
This can be done by setting routing on Q6.
- From the Routing menu select the icon on the Ask this question if item.
- This shows the Manage pre-condition routing dialog where you can enter the routing expression.
- Click on routing expression… in the text box and type Q5=1. This routing rule means that Q6 will be shown if Q5 has the first value selected. In this case, when Yes is selected. Further details on routing rules can be found in Routing rules expressions.
- Set the scope to Apply to this Q only. The scope sets whether the routing expressions are applied to each question or to all questions. When a respondent selects Yes in Q5 then Q6 will be asked.
- Click OK.
- The routing information is shown in the Routing side menu.
Routing on Other response
Question 6 is a Multi choice question with the last answer as “Other”. The Other response text box should only be displayed when the answer Other is selected.
- From the Routing menu select the icon on the Ask this question if… item.
- This opens a Manage pre-condition routing dialog where you can enter the routing expression.
- Q6a is the question number for the Other response section of question 6. Click on the Q6a expression text box and type Q6=5. This routing rule says that Q6a is only shown when the fifth value in Q6 is selected. In this case, when Other is selected. Further details on routing rules can be found in Routing rules expressions.
- Click OK to save the routing.
- The routing information is shown in the Routing side menu. The routing for both Q6 and Q6a are shown.
