A Page break is used when you want to divide your survey into multiple pages. A good reason for doing so is to make it easier for mobile users to participate in your surveys. Also, you may want to divide your surveys into different chapters, where you ask different types of questions or you ask questions about different subjects.
When you drag a page break into your survey, a pagination bar will automatically appear at the bottom of each page. The pagination bar is smartly combined with a progress bar that shows your participants how much of the survey is remaining. It is a proven fact that participants will have more patience in answering questions when they know how much of the survey is remaining. Therefore, the progress bar is much needed for surveys that are divided into several pages.
Page breaks do not have many settings:
The only available setting for Page break fields allows you to remove their back buttons. With this setting ON, respondents can only continue forwards inside the survey, regardless if they have answered the previous questions or not.
This may be useful when you do not want to allow respondents to change their mind and come back to previous questions. For example when you create quizzes, or when you have conditional logic flows that will display different sets of questions based on respondent’s initial answers.
This can also be useful when you apply logic & branching to disqualify respondents. This way, they can’t go back and change their answers, resulting in a cleaner data.
The last page break is the one that contains the Submit button. You do not manually add this page break; it will always be there.
You can change the text label of the “Submit button” to any desired word. Just click on the submit button in the page break, and type a new word. This is a great choice for making surveys in other languages.
You may also want to remove the sumbit button, but activating this setting, for example for short single-page surveys which are embedded in websites.
But keep in mind, because you will not have a Submit button, anything that must happen after submitting the survey will not happen anymore. For example if you have a Thank you page it will not show up at the end; the public analytics page will not be displayed to respondents who answer all the questions; the Instant notifications features will not work anymore, because all of these only work when a respondent completes the survey and clicks on the submit button.
