The Survey Flow is a block-level view of your survey. From here, you can customize where respondents go in your survey and what they see. You can perform simple tasks like rearranging blocks, or you can add elements like Branch Logic that direct and personalize your respondents’ survey experience. Respondents will start at the top of the flow and work their way through until they reach an end point and finish the survey.
Navigating the Survey Flow
To access the Survey Flow, click Survey Flow in the navigation bar of the Survey module.
In the Survey Flow, you will see a list of the question blocks, or groups of questions, in your survey. In basic surveys, you may see just one block.
The Survey Flow can be customized by adding new elements such as Branches (used to show certain blocks only to those who meet conditions you specify), Randomizers (used to randomly choose which Blocks each respondent will see), and a variety of other Elements. See a complete list in the Using the Survey Flow section of this page.
- Click Add a New Element Here or Add Below.
- Choose the element you would like to add.
- Click Save Flow when you are finished making edits (if you made an edit by mistake, simply click Cancel to not save the change).
In the Survey Flow, you can easily change the order in which respondents will see Blocks.
- Click and hold down the Move option on the element you would like to move.
- Drag the element to the correct place inside the Survey Flow.
- Click Save Flow.
The following is a list of the different Survey Flow elements that can be used in combination with each other to create a well designed research project.
- Question Blocks: Show a block of questions (typically used in conjunction with other Survey Flow elements).
- Branches: Conditionally display blocks and other elements.
- Embedded Data: Add any extra information beyond the question responses (such as panel data or other variables).
- Randomizer: Randomly present question blocks and other elements.
- Web Service: Pull external information into the survey.
- Authenticator: Verify respondents’ identities before they take the survey.
- End of Survey: Terminate respondents at various locations with custom experiences.
- Table of Contents: Allow respondents to self-navigate question blocks.
- Reference Surveys: Use the same sets of questions in multiple surveys.
You can zoom in and out within the Survey Flow view by clicking on the Zoom out/Zoom in options.
Each Survey Flow element has a unique Survey Flow ID. This ID can be seen by selecting Show Flow IDs. These IDs are used in the downloaded data file so you can identify which elements within the Randomizer were randomized.
