Logic conditions for questions with single or multiple choice input

We offer several question types that allow respondents to answer to your questions, by selecting one or several choices amongst all presented choices. This way of choosing (or voting) is available in the following question types: Single Selection, Multiple Selection, Dropdown list, Net Promoter Score ®, Likert Scale, Rating (Stars, Sliders, Thumbs, Smilies).

*How many pets do you have?
Choose a condition
  • logic rule icon for choice based questions (for any chosen choices)is
  • logic rule icon for choice based questions (for not chosen choices)is not
  • logic rule icon for choice based questions (for all chosen choices)is exactly all of the following
  • Dog
  • Cat
  • Hamster
  • Fish
  • N/A
The example above shows a required question with choice input. Conditions (rules) for questions with single or multiple choice input are displayed below the question. Read more about each logic condition further down.
How to:
After choosing any of the options which are explained further down, you get the possibility of adding selecting answers (choices). Right below the options menu, you see answers as they originally appear in your questions. All you need to do is to click or tap on those items that you intend to to include in the logic rule.
 

is

is (any of the following)

As the title of this condition clearly explains, any of the items that are chosen by you here, will be a criteria for our system to react and trigger the logic rule. This means, if a survey participant selects any choice that is similar to your choices, our logic system will run your rule. Think as if you are putting an “OR” between each item that you select from the list of choices.

Choose an action
The example above shows a required question with choice input. Choices which are selected by survey creator state that, if a respondent chooses either “Hamster” OR “Fish” (or both), this survey logic rule shall be triggered.
Note:

You can of course choose to select only one single item. In that case, our system only looks for that one specific item. If that very specific one is the respondent’s choice, the respective logic rule will be triggered.

is not

is not (any of the following)

This condition is the opposite of the previous one; which mean all items that are not chosen by you, will be criterion for our system to react and trigger the logic rule. In other words, if a survey participant selects any choice that is not similar to your choices, our logic system will run your rule. Here again, consider an “OR” between each item that you select from the list of choices.

Choose an action
The example above shows a required question with choice input. Choices which are selected by survey creator state that, if a respondent chooses anything except “N/A”, this survey logic rule shall be triggered.
Note:

You can of course choose to select only one single item. In that case, our system only looks for that one specific item and in case respondents choose anything other than that specific one, the respective logic rule will be triggered.

is exactly all of the following

is exactly all of the following

This condition enables you to select several choices, and if a respondent also select the exact combination of choices, then our system will trigger the logic rule.

THEN
Choose an action
The example above shows a required question with multiple choice input. Choices which are selected by survey creator state that, if a respondent chooses exactly “cat” and “dog” (not any other combination), this survey logic rule shall be triggered.
Note:

This condition is only available for those questions which allow multiple selections (not single selection). Because naturally in single selection questions, respondents cannot choose more than one choice, which automatically eliminates the chance of having a combination of choices.
