Branching makes it possible to control the respondent’s path through the questions using special conditions. Examples of such conditions are that in cases where the respondent answers “yes” to question 1, the respondent will automatically be moved to question 4 without having to answer questions 2 and 3..

What are the advantages?

arrow Makes your survey more relevant for the respondent as one does not have to answer illogical questions.

branching1 Note: Branching can only be created if the response alternatives consist of radio buttons or drop-down menu. It is only possible to create rules in one response mechanism per question. We recommend that you never sort or change the order of questions once the branching has been created, as this would increase the risk of errors.

4. A new window is now opened where all response alternatives are shown. Next to the response alternatives a drop-down menu of questions is displayed.

6. Done!
