    Can I get an informational paragraph to appear after an answer has been submitted?

    Asked by Daniel on June 28, 2011 at 02:54 PM

    I work for a municipal government and I am trying to create a survey about citzens' knowledge of water pollution.  My goal is to have a short paragraph outlining what the correct answer was and why.  Is this something I can create with your tool?  Here's an example: 

    Question: As far as you know, what happens to storm water runoff (aka, rain and melted snow) and any pollutants that may be picked up, after it passes through storm grates on the side of the road in Downingtown?

    Selectable Answers:

    Goes directly into Brandywine Creek

    Goes to Downingtown Area Regional Authority’s Wastewater treatment plant

    Goes through specialized treatment


    Informational Paragraph to appear after answer is given:

    (Water in storm sewers, especially with older infrastructure such as Downingtown’s, generally releases their water directly into surface waterways (I.E. the Brandywine Creek).  In the early 20th century storm sewers were sometimes combined with the sanitary sewers and went to a waste water treatment plant.  This practiced proved to be unsafe since water from heavy rains would generally overwhelm the treatment plants and release raw sewage into waterways.  These systems have done away with over the decades.   In some newer developments there is a detention process where water is held back in a manmade pond before going into a creek or river.  This allows some pollutants and sediment to settle out, but not everything.  Although new technology and BMP’s are on the rise, including devices such as stormceptors  and other new types of treatment for stormwater.)

    Do you want to show the answer on the form page, or when the user submits the form.


    a) If you would like to show it on the same page, use Free Text (HTML) field under Power Tools to add it. Then use Form Conditional Logic to hide/show it depending on the answer provided. 


    b) If you would like to show it on the next page, use Thank You Message feature.

    1. Click on "Setup and Embed" tab on the form builder toolbar
    2. Click on "Thank You"
    3. Select "Custom Message" option and enter the text.


    If you have any further questions please let me know. :)
