  1. Advanced Branching -Enable ability to skip/hide questions

    Currently, branching works best when only two branches exist. Forms should be able to support more than two branches for a question. The end goal is to hide all irrelevant questions based on a user's response to a previous question.

    Below is a example question for this use case:
    Q: Please select your preference below.
    1. Option A
    2. Option B
    3. Option C
    4. No Preference

    Expected Functionality:
    If "No Preference" is selected, I want to skip to the end of the form.

    If "Option A" is selected, I want to skip to a specific question. The same is…

    • Allow the ability to create page breaks in the form to enhance the branching feature.

      Add a page break feature so that you can separate questions in a longer survey. This will also enhance the branching feature by allowing questions to "jump" to a defined page.

      • Make the branching functionality more obvious when building questions, especially on the first question.

        When designing questions, it should be obvious that branching is possible - this affects how questions are written. There should be some connection to it near the actual question creation. Either a direct option to branch from there, or a pointer to find the branching ability.

        • Change wording of 'submit' to 'next question' when branching is enabled

          Currently when branching is enabled, the user sees the word 'Submit' after each question. This is confusing as it implies they have finished the form, whereas if there are further questions to complete, something like 'Next question' would be more appropriate.

          • conditional required

            When using branching, make a question "Required" based on the response to a previous question.

            Example:
            1) Do you have a smartphone (required)
            a) Yes
            b) No

            2) Which operating system does your smartphone have (only required if the answer to 1 is a)
            a) iOS
            b) Android
            c) Windows Phone
            d) Other

            3) Totally unrelated question

            • Include a way to pipe responses from one question to be used in other questions and responses

              If I select phone (in responses to preferred method of contact), then the form can branch to the question prompting for entering a phone number (as opposed to entering an email, or address). Then, once the phone number is entered, you can add a question like, "Is your phone number below correct? (and their entered phone number appears for confirmation). If the respondent selects yes, the form continues, if no is selected, then the form goes back to the question prompting for entering a phone number.

              • If a question can be answered w/ multiple responses, it would be nice to branch from each one of those responses.

                If a question can be answered w/ multiple options (responses), it would be nice to branch from each one of those responses. Currently, only one branching option is offered from the general question at the top of the options.

                • The ability to create hidden fields and the ability to set default values by the owner.

                  Allowing hidden fields would allow owners to set default values that would be hidden from the end user. It would also allow better branching options and the ability to re-use the same survey over and over and send the data back to a single SharePoint list for cumulative evaluation.

                  • Branching (Advanced)

                    Hi, it would be great if branching could include some functionality with rating questions - I'm using quite complex branching to go the extra mile and deliver a bit more of a personalised survey and it would be great to send respondents to different questions based on a 1-10 or 1-5 rating, rather than constantly having to ask for 'Strongly Agree - Strongly Disagree' each time.

                      • Add a free text box under a choice question, and has ability to active it when one of answer was selcted

                        Suggest to enable the ability of adding text box when user select one of the options in the question, not use the branching. I think this function is used very frequently, if there are many this kind of questions, use branching is just wasting of time I think.

                        • move the branching option out of the overflow menu and onto the main toolbar so it is easier to locate and use.

                          I couldn't find the branching option originally and made the form without it. Having it in the same menu as feedback, help, and logout does not seem like an intuitive location.

                          • branching

                            This may be user error, but it seems like when you use branching, all questions after the branching question are hidden until you answer the branching question. It would be better if the full survey was visible, except for any drill-down question, which would just show up in the list based on the response to the branching question.

                            • Add ability to interact with another form

                              If for example a "new hire form" is created, when a manager as the option on the form to request a new computer yes or no, if the yes option is selected then the form "called hardware purchase" will show up so it can be filled out. After the "hardware purchase form" has been completed then it goes back to finish the "new hire form"

                                  I have built a form with several branches. When the previous question is answered, the form jumps to the correct branch, but all following branches can be seen too.

                                  • When using branching in a quiz, we lose the feedback. Need to be able to use both

                                    Branching is able to be set up with a quiz, but in the live version the question specific dlfeedback does not show. Would be nice to have the feedback show and then option to move to next question based on branching rules.

                                        #5 receives my top vote. I see branching based on the question, but not on the response to the question. For example, if the answer is "Yes" to Question 1, I'd like the user to be routed to Question 2. If the answer to Question 1 is "No", I'd like the user to be routed to Question 3 and to bypass Question 2. Is that already possible?

                                        • branch diagram (visio maybe?)

                                          i would like the ability to download a diagram of the branching paths so that building conditional responses in FLOW is easier.
