Logic Block Pages: Adding a Logic Block

This article will show you how to add a logic block to a Logic Block Page


Background

Logic blocks are used for a variety of reasons. The most common are: 

  • Terminating Respondents
  • Skipping to questions/pages
  • Setting questions and/or variables

Add a Block

  1. Add your 'Logic Block Page' if you haven't already
    1. See article: Add a Logic Block Page
  2. After you have added your 'Logic Block Page', click on the page itself to open it. This will open logic card on the main screen 

  3. Click on '+ Block' 

  4. In the 'Run Actions' drop-down you can select either:
    1. 'Always' (default) - This will run this logic every time you get to it in the survey 
    2. 'Only If" - This opens up the condition field so you can use utilize a formula 
  5. You can also enter in an optional 'Description' if you need to add a note or reminder for yourself or other person reviewing the project. This is helpful if you as a primary programmer will be out of the office and somebody will be finishing up and testing for you. 

  6. Next use the 'Add Action' menu to select what you are looking to do
