Survey logic makes creating various paths for respondents easy by skipping specific questions based on previous responses.

You can design the survey experience by adding a customized question flow and segmenting users based on their feedback.

In this article, you'll learn how to set up Survey logic in a multiple answer selection. If you want to set it up for different question types, visit one of the links below:

๐Ÿ’กThis feature is available for Email or Shareable link and Website or in-product surveys and is included in all of our plans!

1. Once you've started creating your survey and added a multiple answer selection, as well as the other survey questions, head over to the Logic tab of the question and click on + Add new logic.

2. Here, you'll see the If answer condition, letting you decide when to apply logic.

You can choose to apply logic if the response is exactly, includes any of the following, includes all of the following, doesn't include any of the following, or when it has any value.

๐Ÿ’กLet's take a look at what the above possibilities mean:

is exactly - if you select Answer 1, Answer 3 and Answer 4 here, this logic will work for respondents who select all of the answer choices - Answer 1, Answer 3 and Answer 4.

This condition will not work if a respondent selects another one of the possible answers in addition to Answer 1, Answer 3 and Answer 4.

includes any of the following - if you select Answer 1, Answer 3 and Answer 4 here, this logic will work for respondents who select any of the answer choices - Answer 1, Answer 3 or Answer 4.

This condition will also work if a respondent selects another one of the possible answers in addition to Answer 1, Answer 3 or Answer 4.

includes all of the following - if you select Answer 1, Answer 3 and Answer 4 here, this logic will work for respondents who select all of the answer choices - Answer 1, Answer 3 and Answer 4.

This condition will also work if a respondent selects another one of the possible answers in addition to Answer 1, Answer 3 and Answer 4.

doesn't include any of the following - if you select Answer 1, Answer 3 and Answer 4 here, this logic will work for respondents whose answer choice will lack at least one of these answers.

has any value - this logic will work regardless of what answer the respondent chooses.

3. For this example, let's choose includes all of the following.

Choose the desired option(s) simply by clicking on the answer choices.

๐Ÿ“Œ Any answer option not selected in the If answer condition will direct the respondents to the next question.

4. Now, you can decide what question the respondent should see next.

In the then option, choose the next step, whether it's another question or the end of the survey.

It's not possible to use Survey logic to direct the respondent to a previous question. To select the next step in the survey's path, it needs to be placed after the question in which you're currently setting up logic.

5. You successfully added a new logic to your survey ๐Ÿš€.

If you'd like to add another one to the same question, click on + Add new logic again and repeat the above steps.

If you changed your mind and would rather delete the logic, simply click on the โŠ– button.

Please note that if there is a conflict in your multiple logic settings, the survey behavior will be determined by the first true logic condition.

โ—๏ธAlso, if you delete a question that is used in any logic settings in a survey, all the settings where it was used will be removed because they become invalid.

The same applies to the situation when you move a question above some other questions that have it in their logic settings - the logic becomes invalid and that's why we remove all logic settings that included the re-ordered question.

Best practices

Set up survey logic separately for each question in your survey

Without survey logic, the questions will be shown one after the other.

You can test the logic flow on the right side of the Create tab in the preview.
