    Survey result based on user selection using conditions

    Asked by nouveauxcouples on April 09, 2015 at 09:56 AM

    Hi,

     

    I can see how to do a survey with multiple answer but I don't understand how to program your software so if the user respond a total of x question with x answer from 1 to 4. 1 being ''i agree'' and 4 being ''i totally disagree'' so that at the end of the survey we can send them a response depending on the result?

    Can I pay someone intern to show it for me or do you have a video? 

    thanx Marc

    And my other issue is for some question, if the user mark 1- ''i agree'' it won't mean the same thing if he does answer 1 gain on another answer. So I need to be able to give a value to each different answer so at the end I can establish

    if the user is more this or more that and by knowing that he will have a text related to is total.

     

    thanx

    Hi there,

    Thank you for waiting. I've created a demo form (http://form.jotform.me/form/50984766998482) of how I think you want this form to work. This is a long process, you will be working with conditions and calculation. I would recommend you reading our guide about smart conditions and form calculation.

    For each question, there is a hidden text box below it. The text box will verify if you answer is yes or no. If yes, it will put 1 on the yes answer field and if no, it will put 1 on the no answer field.

    In order for you to hide a field is you need to right click the form field and select "Hide Field".

    After creating 4 questions, with 4 yes/no fields below them, you need to create a final result for both yes/no fields. This will serve as the total number of answers. You will use the Form calculation widget to add the 4 Yes fields targeting the total Yes field. You will do the same with the No fields.

    You can now add conditions to your form. The idea is the Yes/No fields below the questions will be updated depending on the user's answer. 

    You will be using the condition "Update a form field".

    You will add condition for the Yes field. The condition should be like this:

    Add another condition for the No field. It should turn out like this

    You will do the same thing on the other questions. When you're done, it should count the number of yes and no answers.

    ----

    Optional: Now that you have a total number of answers from the user, you can now decide if the user "Agree" or "Disagree".

    Create a "Page break" so the result will be on a separate page.

    Now add 2 text fields. These are for the agree or disagree fields.

    You will then use conditions in order to show or hide these fields depending on the number of results in the fields.

    It should turn out like this.

     

    Hope this helps. Thank you.
