Page display logic allows you to show or hide pages for respondents depending on their previous answers or other meta-data such as custom fields, language or gender.
How does it work?
Just like branching, page display logic is page based, meaning that once a respondent clicks ‘Next‘ in the survey, first branching is applied to see which page the respondent should go to next. Then the page display logic will check whether the respondent should see that page or not. If not, then the page display logic of the next page will be checked and so on until a page is found or the end of the survey is reached. An example: you want to show certain questions only to female contacts. You put these questions on 1 page and on top of the page you set up your page display logic as follows:
Now this page will only be shown to respondents whose gender is ’female’. All other respondents will skip this page and go to the next available page.
The advantage of using page display logic is that you can put it immediately on the first page of your survey, whereas with branching you always had to show at least 1 question to all respondents before dividing them into separate groups leading to separate pages. It will also minimize the number of branches needed.
How do I add page display logic to my pages?
- Sign in to CheckMarket.
- Open your survey.
- Click on Edit.
- Click on the blue button above the page you want to add page display logic to.
- In the next window you’ll be able to decide the following:
- show the page or don’t show the page
- Set the condition using either a response to a previous question or a respondent field such as language, gender or custom field.
- You can add additional conditions if needed.
- Click Save.
The active page display logic will be shown in blue above each page. Page display logic combined with branching allows you to create complex routes through your surveys. Remember, though, that branching is applied before page display logic. So please test, test and test again.
