Users with Form Editor access can create evaluation questions that trigger the display of follow-up questions within the same category. This applies to any question type other than Written. Users can create this type of question branching by using the Conditional Display Editor located in the Form Editor.

For example, an evaluation asks a quantitative question such as: 

"The learning outcomes of this course have been made clear".

And users can respond with one of seven possible answers: 

  • Strongly Agree
  • Agree
  • Mildly Agree
  • Neutral
  • Mildly Disagree
  • Disagree
  • Strongly Disagree

You could use the Conditional Display Editor to target the two most undesired answers, Disagree and Strongly Disagree, by selecting the Add Conditional Display button to add rules that specifically target Disagree and Strongly Disagree. The question that follows this one in the Form Editor will be the question that is triggered, for example, Why did you select disagree for the previous question?.

Using the Conditional Display Editor


The trigger question must be directly above the question that will be conditionally displayed in a category. 

1. Click Add Conditional Display

This button is located below the question you want to be the trigger when in Edit or Create evaluation mode.

2. Select "Equals" in the Editor's First Dropdown box

3. Select an Option from the Second Dropdown box

Select the answer to trigger a conditional display, in this case, Mildly Disagree.

4. Tap the Add Rule Button

To add a second answer to trigger a conditional display besides Mildly Disagree, select the Add Rule button to make it an "or" situation. 

5. Repeat

Repeat the process from steps 2 and 3 above to add the second and third condition. Select Disagree for the first rule and Strongly Disagree for the second rule. This will cause Mildly Disagree, Disagree, and Strongly Disagree to trigger a conditional display question.

6. Click the Save button


When there are multiple answers that can be selected for a question and you want to have two or more answers trigger a conditional response, select the Add "AND" Condition button instead of the Add Rule button. This allows two or more answers to trigger a conditional question.

In addition, the “Select Many” question type can be used within conditionally displayed questions for up to two options.
