Notice.png
Hint: This features is available starting in version 1.92


Description

If the value of the relevance equation is "1" or "true", the question is "relevant" in the survey context, i.e. it is shown to the survey participant. If not, the question is hidden. All questions let you specify a relevance equation. Relevance is the successor to conditions and supports much more complex conditional logic.

Syntax Highlighting

Whenever you save the relevance equation, it will be evaluated and syntax-highlighted. Any errors will be color coded so that you can quickly detect and fix them.

Valid values

Any equation, using Expression Manager syntax, without surrounding curly braces.

Examples

Here are good examples of syntax highlighting

Available option

  • No (default)
  • Yes - stars
  • Yes - slider with emoticon



Always hide this question (hidden)

Description

If you prefill a question by URL you can use this setting to hide the question and its value from the survey participant at all. This overrides any conditions because the particular question is never even embedded in a page. If you just want to hide a question (for example if you want to store a value calculated on the fly) then use Javascript embedded in the question source code.
