    How to populate form from previous answers?

    Asked by aschwarz on January 26, 2015 at 04:31 PM



    I need to create a multi-section form that more advanced sections are populated by previous ones.

    its for a sociological study so i kinda need the answer they wrote themselves, and for them not to be able to change them.

    for example:

    in question A in section one needs to write 10 different attributes of a social group. so there would be a prompt and ten empty fields.

    in section C question A he needs to to rate on a scale his identification with said attributes. 

    for example "john" wrote in the first question "clean", "fast", "neurotic", "dumb" etc...

    now i need "clean" to appear next to a scale in section C and below it "neurotic" with its scale etc...


    Is there a way to enter the answers in anyway, text field, question prompt etc... later in the form?
