# Survey with autoresponders based on answers selected as well as tallying answers

I have a survey with 18 questions that I want to do a few things with

1.  I want to tally the answers that are selected such as 8 yes and 8 no

2. Based on those answers, I want to send a single autoresponder.  So if questions 3, 4 and 7 are answered no then send autoresponder 1.  If questions 3, 4, 7 and 10 are answered no then send autoresponder 2.

I am trying to figure out the best way to develop an algorithm that takes all those questions and outputs the best autoresponder without sending multiple autoresponders and leaving options that are incorrect such as if all 18 answers are no.

Can you help with this?

You can try using conditions to trigger the autoresponders based on the answers: https://www.jotform.com/help/167-How-to-Send-Email-Based-on-User-s-Answer

Based on those answers, I want to send a single autoresponder. So if questions 3, 4 and 7 are answered no then send autoresponder 1. If questions 3, 4, 7 and 10 are answered no then send autoresponder 2.

This creates a conflict. Your form will be sending out 2 autoresponders because 3, 4, and 7 conditions have already been met along with the 10.

I have already setup autoresponder conditions but since there are 18 questions, it seems that developing conditions for each outcome would take a lot of conditions. 2 responses per question, 18 questions = 2^18 = 262,144. I was trying to find an easier way and a way to not have duplicate autoresponder conditions

Please provide more details of what you're trying to achieve. What message do you want to send to the user? Why do you need a lot autoresponder? I noticed on your autoresponder email content, the only thing that is changing is the number or total score. Here's a screenshot:
