For example, if you create a
survey with three questions: Did you read the book? Do you plan to read
the book? and Was the book good? you can assign a branching on the first
question so that a user who answers Yes is redirected to the third
question. A user who answers No is redirected to the second question.
The second and third questions are not shown when the survey interface
is first shown to the users. They are shown only after the user answers
the first question. Users have a Next button that allows them to
continue to the next question in the branch. Figure 1 shows how branching looks to the user.
Branching in a survey. The user sees only the first question, with a
Next button to go to the next question, depending on the answer.
To define the branching in a
survey, you first create all the questions and then edit the columns
you want to be conditional so that they have the branching. You don’t
need to add page separators unless you want to; the survey
automatically splits the questions into pages, depending on the
branching. Figure 2 shows how to define the branching on the first question to redirect the users based on the answer.
