    I am trying to make a survey using the answer from a previous question in the question label of the next question. I have a survey where respondents will initially choose 1 type of power tool from a radio choice type question. I want to ask immediately afterwards "How many of <answer from initial question> does your company use at least once a week? Is there any way to use previous answer in the actual question in later questions?

    I have attached the form that I am making below.

    That is possible to achieve by entering the name of the radio field into the label of the next question. Simply follow the steps below:

    1. Click the gear icon of the radio field

    2. Select Edit Properties

    3. Copy the name of the radio field

    4. Then input the name of the radio field into the label of your next question.

     

    Once that is done, the label should now display the selected answer from the radio field.

    I'm using the brackets with the Name inside cut and copied e.g.

    {whatPneumatic}

    and the answer doesn't input.. any ideas what's going on?
