Google Forms is a great tool for creating surveys and quizzes. But did you know that you can use Google Forms to create branching logic? That means you can send respondents to different sections of your form based on their answers. This can be a great way to customize your form for each respondent and get more detailed information from them. In this blog post, we’ll show you how to set up branching logic in your Google Form so that respondents are directed to the appropriate section based on their answers.
How to Use Google Forms?
Assuming you have a Google Form created, here’s how to use it to send respondents to different sections based on their answers.
- In the “Responses” tab of your Google Form, click the “+ Add Item” button in the top right corner.
- A new question will appear. Type in your question and then select “Go to section based on answer” from the “Question Type” drop-down menu
- Now you can add the different answer choices and corresponding sections for each choice. Note that you can also add a “Default” section for any answer that doesn’t match one of the specific choices.
- Once you’re done, click “Save” and then test out your form to make sure it’s working as intended!
How to Create a Google Form?
Assuming you have already created a form in Google Docs, go to the “Tools” tab and select “Forms.”
In the new window that opens, select “Go to page based on answer.”
A pop-up will appear asking you to choose the page you want to send people to based on their answer. Select the page and click “OK.”
Now, every time someone answers your form, they will be taken to the appropriate section based on their response.
How to Add Questions to a Google Form?
Adding questions to a Google Form is easy! Just follow these simple steps:
- Open your form in the Forms editor
- Click on the “Add Item” button in the toolbar
- Select the “Question” option
- Enter your question text in the Question field
- (optional) Add choices for multiple choice or dropdown questions
- Click the “Done” button
That’s it! Your question has been added to your form.
How to Share a Google Form?
Assuming you have already created a Google Form, open the form in edit mode. Click on the “Multiple choice” question type. Under the “Options” tab, check the “Go to page based on answer” box.
Now, when you click on the “Multiple Choice” question type, there will be an additional “Page” drop-down menu. This is where you will specify which page of the form to send respondents to based on their answer.
For example, let’s say you have a form with two pages. On page one, there is a multiple choice question asking respondents which city they live in. On page two, there are questions specific to each city.
If you want respondents who select “New York” to be taken to page two of the form, you would select “New York” from the “Page” drop-down menu. Respondents who select any other option would stay on page one of the form.
How to Customize a Google Form?
Google Forms allows you to customize the behavior of your form in a number of ways. One way you can customize your form is by setting up branching. Branching allows you to send respondents to different sections of your form based on their answers to previous questions.
To set up branching in your form, first open the form in the Form Editor. Then, click the “Add Item” button and select “Section” from the drop-down menu.
In the “Title” field, enter a name for this section of your form. Then, click the “Add Question” button and add the question that you want to use to branch your form.
After adding your question, click the “Branch To” drop-down menu and select the section of your form that you want respondents to be sent to if they answer this question in a certain way. You can also choose to send respondents to a different section of your form if they leave this question blank.
When you’re finished setting up branching for this question, click the “Save” button at the bottom of the page. Repeat these steps for each question that you want to use to branch your form.
