What is Skip logic

Find out what Skip logic is, take a look at our examples and try it yourself!

Skip logic allows you to create branched form, survey or quiz. You can send a respondent to the future question in relation with respondent’s answer to a certain question.

Let’s take a simple example!

We want to ask our respondents whether they like to ride a bike or not. If their answer is “Yes” they will continue on the additional question to give us more information about riding a bike. If their answer is “No” they will skip question about riding a bike to the question behind. If the answer is “I’m not doing any sports” we will skip them to the end screen.

Using skip logic, we segregate respondents and ask them questions regarding their area of interest. So the form becomes adapted to the respondents according to their responses.
