Go To Question
Description: Describes how to use a Go To Question in a survey to implement branching or skip logic in a survey.
The Go To Question can be used along with Ask if logic to implement branching or skip logic in a survey. The Go To Question does not cause any question or text to be displayed to the respondent. Rather it jumps the respondent to another part of the survey.
Typically you'll set Ask if logic on the Go To question to specify when to jump to another part of the questionnaire. For more information on Ask if Logic see the Ask if Logic page. Here are some uses of the Go To question with Ask if logic:
- Jump to the end of a survey (possibly with a custom closing message) if the user does not meet some criteria to take the survey (for example, you inquire about residence and only want respondents from North Carolina to take the survey).
- Jump a series of questions based on a question answer. For example, when the user is asked if they have been to your Web site, they answer No, so you want to skip all the questions related to the Web site. Note that you could set Ask if logic on all the questions related to your website, but if there are a lot of questions it is quicker to add a single Go To question.
- Implement more complex logic by "stacking" Go To questions, i.e. adding a series of Go To questions one after the other. For example, you can often use this technique to set conditionals based on more than one question.
