Today, we’re happy to introduce a helpful new feature called Piping. Available on paid plans, Piping allows you to display an answer from a previous question on a later page. For example, a piped answer could be displayed in a question or as a new answer choice in a follow-up question.
If you ask the participant to choose a favorite color:
1. What is your favorite color?
You could incorporate the answer into a question asked later in the survey:
2. Please tell us why you like Green best.
Or, if you ask the participant’s name:
1. Please tell us your name.
You could include his or her name in a final “thank you” message:
How to Add Piping
Piping can be used to pull answers from the following question types:
- Multiple Choice – Single answer
- Multiple Choice – List
- Open Text – Single line
- Open Text – Paragraph
Selected, or piped, text can be displayed within these survey elements:
- Question titles
- Answer choices
- Headings and paragraphs
- A “thank you” message
Remember, to add Piping, the piped text must be inserted below its original placement, in a later page of the survey. For example, to display text for question one, simply insert [Q1] in the text of a later question, answer choice, paragraph, or message.
We hope you enjoy this new feature! As always, if you have any questions or feedback, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
