    Condition based questions

    Asked by tomtom777 on June 10, 2014 at 03:54 PM

    Also, do you have a form that could show only one question initially,

    and after someone answers that question, it could take them to the next

    question, like a sequence of questions, but they can't see the next question until

    they answer the current one?  Thanks for reply

    That's possible with hide/show condition.

    E.g. if question1 is filled, show question2.

    Or you can use Page Break to divide questions into pages.

    Hope this helps!

    Regarding the Hide/Method, it became too difficult to do, not explaining what to do exaxtly or the next step. 

    During the Page Break method, it didn't tell me how to create a Next page and how to connect these pages together.

    Please explain the steps, thank you.

    The Show/Hide method would allow you to set a condition where you can hide Question 2 until Question 1 has been filled. Like so:

    The Page Break method would allow to show every question on its own section. All you need to do to create the page separations, is to add a Page Break tool after each question.

    Please clone these forms to your account to understand their workings better. Do let us know if you need further assistance. Thank you.
