Smart surveys with question branching and conditional logic

survey maker with logic jumps

Create a beautiful experience for your respondents and boost response rates by using conditional logic.

Your survey will self-customize based on the answers provided by respondents and show only the relevant questions. As a simple example, if a respondent states that he/she likes ice-cream in a multiple-choice question, you can proceed to asking what is his/her favorite flavor. If they don’t like it, then the next question will be skipped.

This personalized experience will stimulate a high completion rate, which means more good data for you! Conditional logic goes beyond question branching. You can use it for showing custom Thank You pages and for triggering tailored confirmation messages to your respondents after survey completion.

The data that you collect through your survey can be automatically presented in various ways, depending on what you need.

Visual charts are the easiest and friendliest way to display survey results. Our free survey builder contains pie charts, bar charts and other widgets that allow for a quick visual representation of your data.

Collected survey data can also be displayed in a table format, with sorting and filtering options. This approach goes deeper than the highlights and provides access to all of the collected information.

Reports can also be shared automatically with the respondents after they have finished filling out the survey. Your data can also flow automatically in your Google spreadsheet, Excel file or other apps that you use.

Multi-language support for a diverse target audience

multilingual surveys

When your target audience comprises speakers of different languages, you can serve the online survey in each of these languages.

Respondents will select their preferred language in a picklist, and the entire survey will load in that specific language, from the survey statements and possible responses to the system messages indicating filling errors or guidelines for completion.

In order to obtain quality data that you can rely on, it is important to speak the same language as your respondents – and, with the 123FormBuilder online survey creator, you can do just that, quickly and easily.

5 tips on how to create an engaging survey

be clear

1. Be clear about what you want to achieve

Creating surveys should not be random. Before you start creating your survey, take a step back and think about what you want to achieve with it. What are your goals? What do you want to find out? Once you have a clear idea of your goals, it will be easier to create questions that will help you achieve them.

keep it short

2. Keep it short and sweet

No one likes filling out a long, tedious survey. The key is to keep your survey as short and concise as possible while still gathering the information you need. Try to limit your questions to 1-2 sentences each and avoid overly complicated question types. And this is where that question branching feature on 123FormBuilder comes in handy.

visual appealing

3. Make it visually appealing

With 123FormBuilder surveys, you can change the look and feel of your surveys in a matter of minutes. You can use your brand colors, pictures, the fonts that make your survey more appealing — in short, you can design your survey to fit your needs and your audience.

engaging question types

4. Use engaging question types

Not all question types are created equal. Some are more engaging than others and can help you get better results. For example, use matrix/rating questions to ask your respondents to rate multiple options on the same scale.

incentivize

5. Incentivize your respondents

Last but not least, don’t forget to incentivize your respondents. Whether you offer them a discount on their next purchase or enter them in a contest, make sure they have something to gain by taking your survey.
