Instead of defining the answers in a given question rigidly, you can use the answers which the respondent marked or did not mark on the previous pages of the survey. This option is possible for two types of questions: multiple choice and matrix questions.

This option allows us to refer directly to specific, given answers, and not hypothetical or very general answers, where the question is completely imposed by us.

Let's suppose we asked the respondent to rate a Canary Island vacation and each of the items such as the hotel, the meals, the resident, the neighborhood, on a scale of 1 (very bad) - 5 (very good). Using the dynamic answer insertion, in the next questions, we can ask for an in-depth opinion regarding only those elements which have been assessed as very bad or bad (scales 1 and 2).

How to get the answers given previously?

1. When adding a question (See how to add a question) click on the "Insert dynamically from previous questions" option.

2. Select from the drop-down list whether you want to take the answers which the respondent marked or did not mark in the previous question.

3. Then select the question from which you want to insert the answers. You can choose either a multiple-choice question or a matrix question. In the case of the matrix question, you must also choose which scale in a given answer will result in its taking.

4. By clicking the green plus button you can add more than one scale from the matrix question to insert answers from several scales, for example, Bad and Very Bad. Confirm everything by clicking the Insert button.

5. Confirm the changes made by clicking Save.

What is worth remembering?

  • This option is active only when at least one multiple-choice question or single-choice matrix question appeared on the previous pages of the survey.

  • The answers given earlier by the respondent can be used only in closed single and multiple-choice questions, single and multiple matrix questions, ranking questions, with a drop-down list, in a question concerning the allocation of points and in the form type questions.

  • In the analysis of the results, a question defined in this way has a cafeteria identical to that of the question on which it is based
