How does “show” work, when used as a consequenceThe “show” consequence enables you to conditionally display one or more items in a survey. These items can be question(s), page(s), or section break(s).
page(s) section break(s) question(s)
Sometimes, instead of selecting several questions one by one; you can group them all into one page within your survey. Then choose to entirely show that page under certain conditions.
Logic Flow #1
answer to the following question
*What are your 3 most favorite pets?
catType one or more words…
#8 Which one of our cats & dogs food sortiments have you purchased before?
#9 Have you ever purchased our multivitamin supplements for cats & dogs?
end of logic flow
As you see in the illustration above, when requirements for the above “rule” or “IF” are met, you can expect our system to preform a so called “show” consequence. This will show any item that you choose, when requirements in the “IF” (or rule) section of this logic flow are met.
If you intend to apply the “show” consequence on some questions or section breaks, it’s recommended to put those questions or section breaks in next pages of your survey. If you prefer to have only one page, make sure things that supposed to become hidden, are not closely placed after the question that may cause them to hide. Because it is better for the respondents not to see items appearing or disappearing from the view, in accordance with their answers. This way, you keep it simple for them, and as a result, reduce the chance of getting biased responses.
The “show” consequence on a question means that question is hidden by default. However, you can still set the question to have required answer. But it will require respondents to answer, only if this question is shown to them, as a result of triggering a logic rule.
You cannot choose to show items which are placed before the last question inside the logic flow. Only things that are physically after the last question of a flow, can get displayed as a consequence.
