Creative and advanced ways to apply piping techniques

Piping is a technique that is used to personalize surveys, pre-fill forms, display calculated values, and much more. Refer to Using Piping for instructions about adding piping to a survey.

Here are several ways in which you can use piping to enhance your survey.

  • Make the answer to a question the default for a subsequent question.  Just use the piping code in the Default Value property of the question.

  • Show a concise Summary page at the end of your survey by piping in the answers to all the questions on the survey. For more details, see Can I give my users a summary of their responses at the end that they can print?.

  • Personalize the survey with Invitation data.  The Welcome page can include the respondent's name and company.

  • Pipe data passed into the survey through Hidden Questions.  For more details about Hidden Questions, see the Using URL Parameters in a Survey page.

  • Pre-fill surveys or forms with the user's data.  For example, in an Update Contact Information form you can pre-fill the fields with the contact information you have for them.

  • Show calculated values based on answers to your survey.  Display a "score" at the end of an assessment.  For more information, see the Formulas or Calculated Questions page.

  • Create advanced conditional logic such as logic based on the answer to multiple questions.  For more information, see the Advanced Ask if Logic page.
