Show Questions Based on Answers in Google Forms: 5 Easy Steps
1. Organize Your Questions by Grouping Them into Sections
Organize your form by splitting it into sections. To do this, click the "Add Section" icon on the right sidebar. This is useful for grouping related questions or creating different paths in your form.
2. Access “More Options” for Your Chosen Question
Click on the three vertical dots at the bottom right of the question box to access more options.
3. Enable Branching With the “Go to Section Based on Answer” Feature
From the menu, choose "Go to section based on answer." This will enable the branching feature for your questions.
Note: The "Go to section based on answer" feature (which allows for conditional branching) is primarily available for questions of the "Multiple Choice" type. However, this feature is also available for "Dropdown" questions since both types have defined answer choices that make it easier to set branching rules.
4. Set the Branching Paths
With the branching option enabled, dropdowns should appear next to each answer choice. Set the desired path or section for each specific answer.
5. Test the Form Using the Preview Function
Before sharing or deploying your form, use the "Preview" icon (looks like an eye) at the top right to view the form as a respondent. This helps in ensuring your branching works as intended.
