Survey Platform - Add Page Break | Qualtrics

Add Page Break


By default, your survey questions will be displayed together on one page, but you can help prevent survey fatigue and improve your respondents’ experience by breaking your survey into multiple pages. The Page Break option allows you to separate your question sets across pages within your survey.

Adding Page Breaks Manually

  1. In the Survey module, click on the question you want to display before the page break.image00
  2. In the Editing Pane to the right, click Add Page Break.image01

A page break will be added underneath the question that you have selected. The questions above the page break will appear on one page, and the questions below the page break will appear on the next.

Qtip: To delete a page break, hover your mouse over the page break and click on the red minus button. To add a question above or below the page break, click on the corresponding green plus button instead.

Adding Page Breaks Automatically

To avoid adding page breaks manually for large surveys, you can use the Questions per Page option in the Look & Feel menu. Click on the General tab and specify how many questions per page you want in your survey.


Qtip: Be aware that if you add a Questions per Page limit of 1, a page break will be inserted after every question. If you would like your survey to vary with some pages containing more questions than others, you will want to manually insert your page breaks throughout the survey.

Page Breaks with Other Features

Understanding how page breaks interact with other features within Qualtrics can be helpful when designing your survey.

  • Piped Text: If an instance of Piped Text refers to an answer in a previous question, then you need to place a page break between those questions. If there is not a page break, the Piped Text won’t pull any information in and will instead appear blank.
  • Blocks: Page breaks automatically occur between blocks.
  • Skip and Display Logic: Page breaks automatically occur between questions when using Skip Logic or Display Logic.
Qtip: In some instances, you can use In-Page Display Logic to avoid having a page break between questions with Display Logic.
  • Timing Questions: The Timing question type records how long respondents spend on a page, so Timing questions must therefore be on the same page as the questions they are timing. If you are using Timing questions, think carefully before deciding to set automatic page breaks in the Look & Feel menu.
