How does Skip Logic work?

Skip logic allows researchers to create a customized screener experience for participants. It's a great tool to use if you want to change what questions a candidate sees, dependent on their responses to a previous question. Plus, it's included free in all projects.

How do I build Skip Logic?

To enable Skip Logic while building your screener, you'll want to click the option button at the bottom of a page. Click "Edit Skip Logic" to add this feature on.


 You'll be asked to confirm that you accept the increased price per recruit, to which you should agree.

A module will pop-up (see below) that allows you to add your Skip Logic conditions. 


To add a new logic statement,
click "Add Logic". To remove a statement, click "Remove".

You may want to have certain participants skip over a page of questions. For example, if you are running a study about alcoholic beverages, you you may want anyone under 21 skipping the page that includes questions about their favorite beers. To skip over a page, use the "Skip To" option based on candidates responses. To have someone finish, select "Skip To: Finish".

To push participants to the end of the screener, select "Skip To: Finish". They will come to a page that states "You have completed the study." If these participants are still qualified based on your criteria, you'll notice that you will only see their responses until they are sent to the end.

"And" Statements

An "and" statement is one in which multiple statements must both be true. When combining two pieces of logic, 'AND' signifies that both conditions are required for the skip to action. 

For instance, let's say respondents are asked to select from a list of options. They need to choose multiple specific options from the list to qualify. An "AND" statement would be used in this situation.

Example : You'd like to speak with people who have a pet dog and a pet cat. Your skip logic conditions should look like this:

"Or" Statements

When combining two pieces of logic, 'OR' signifies that only one condition must be met for the skip to action. Multiple statements are combined into consideration, but one may be false if the other is true.

For instance, let's say respondents are asked to select from a list of options. They need to choose one of three possible options to qualify. An "OR" statement would be used in this situation.

Example: You'd like to speak with people who drink soda or sparkling water.
