Using Destination Logic
Destination logic refers to a programming setup where a participant may be sent to a specific destination or skipped over a specific question (or set of questions) based on their response to a previous Task. This set up is typically used when subsequent questions are not relevant to a participant based on their previous response. For example, if a participant indicates that they do not own a car, they could be skipped over any questions regarding car ownership.
TIP: Leveraging destination logic and segmentation can allow you to easily filter participants' responses during analysis. For example, a Task could be configured to skip participants over a task if they do not own a car, as well as add them to a ‘Does not own a car’ segment, allowing you to filter on participants who do not own a car during analysis.
Using Destination Logic in a Poll Task
- Jump to a Task: Allows you to skip participants to another Task within the same Activity. When selected, a new drop down field will appear, allowing you to select the Task you would like to send participants to if they select this choice. This is useful for skipping participants over a small number of questions that are not relevant to them.
- Another Activity: Allows you to skip participants to another Activity entirely. This can be useful for skipping participants over the remainder of an activity if it is no longer applicable to them.
- Discussion Tab: Allows you to send participants to the Discussions tab. This is useful for encouraging participants to engage in a socialized discussion.
It’s important to note that if you plan on sending participants to another activity (or to the discussion tab) and do not want to require them to return and complete the original activity, you should also select Complete Activity under the destination field. This will ensure that participants don’t need to return to complete the remainder of this Activity
