Compound Branching / Delayed Branching Logic

With simple branching you cannot set up logic based on responses to multiple questions. Also with Simple Branching the logic is executed immediately.

Compound Branching: With help of Compound Logic you can set up branching based on responses to multiple questions in the Survey.

Delayed Branching: With Delayed Branching you can set up Branching Logic based on a Question which was asked much earlier in the Survey.

Consider this example:

Q1: Gender
Q2: Age
Q3: General question to be answered by everybody
Q4: General question to be answered by everybody
Q5: General question to be answered by everybody

Now after Q5 respondents should branch to different questions based on their selection in Q1 AND Q2

Q6: To be answered only by respondents who selected Gender=Male and Age=18 and above
Q7: To be answered only by respondents who selected Gender=Female and Age=18 and below

Now all respondents should again answer rest of the questions.

Q8: General question for all respondents
Q9: General questions for all respondents.

Steps for setting this up:

Before setting up the logic, set up all the questions in the survey.

Since the logic should be executed after Q5, click on the Logic icon for Q5 and go to Compound / Delayed Branching.
