The Logic addon for Quiz and Survey Master allows you to add conditional logic on questions to hide or show different questions based on the response to the previous question.
You can set the addon to show a question when another question’s answer is equal to a certain answer or if it is not equal to a certain answer. You can also show or hide a question if the selected answer is greater than or less than a given value.
Note: We have Disabled the Logic rules for Auto Pagination, meaning – You cannot use Logic Addon when Auto Pagination (Questions Per Page option) is Enabled in the Options Tab of Quiz and Survey Master Plugin. If you have created a Quiz with Auto Pagination Enabled along with the Set Logics for that particular quiz then the Set Logic Rules will be ignored for that particular Quiz.
Logic Database Scheme Upgrade Notice!
With Logic Addon v2.0.0 Update we have completely revamped the UI and upgraded the database schema for better performance and high security. Once you upgrade to v2.0.0 or higher from any of the lower versions, all the logic data will be converted and stored in accordance with the new Database Schema and you won’t be able to roll back to the previous logic version.
Once you have purchased the addon, you will have access to download the addon. To install, simply upload the addon as a normal WordPress plugin. To do so, go to the Plugins page and click Add New. Then, click Upload. From there, upload the zip file that you downloaded when downloading the addon.
Once the addon has been uploaded, you should now have the plugin QSM – Logic listed in your list of plugins. Activate that plugin. Once activated, the plugin will add an option in the Quizzes/Surveys list labeled as Logic.
First, enter your license key from your account into the “Addon License Key” field on the “Logic” tab of the “Addon Settings”. Be sure to click “Save Changes”.
Once you have the license key entered, you can then use the new “Logic” tab when editing your quiz or survey.
In the new Logic tab, you will see the Logic page. Initially, the Logic Page will be blank saying “You don’t have logic rules“. You need to hit the Create New Rule Button to set new Logic Rules to the Quiz.
On this page, you will need to add the Logic Rules. The Addon allows you to show or hide a question based on what the user answers in the previous question. As seen in the below example
The following questions could all be hidden until someone selects an answer in the ‘how many rooms…’ question like, ‘Do you have a garage?’, ‘Is your house more than 5 years old?’, and so on.
Section 1 (When This Happens):
Click on “Select a question” to select the question that you have in your question bank. Next for the condition, you will then have the following options ‘is equal to’, ‘is not equal to’, ‘is greater than’, ‘is less than’, ‘is empty’, and ‘is not empty’.
- ‘is equal to’ is used when the test taker selects the answer specified.
- ‘is not equal to’ is used when the test taker does not select the answer specified.
- ‘is greater than’ is used if the answer contains numbers and the rule will perform the action specified if the answer is greater than the answer specified.
- ‘is less than’ is used if the answer contains numbers and the rule will perform the action specified if the answer is less than the answer specified.
- ‘is empty’ is used if the answer field is blank or kept unanswered.
- ‘is not empty’ is used if the answer field is not blank or has a random answer
And then select the answers that are listed in the question that you have chosen.
Next, you can add AND conditions for more specific conditional branching. For example, if you want to show a specific question only if the user answered “yes” to a previous question, you would add an “and” condition, select the previous question as the basis for the logic, and then select the “yes” answer as the condition that must be met for the question to be shown.
Section 2 (Do This/Then Section):
Once you select all of your options under the ‘When This Happens’ section, it is time to move on to the ‘Do This’ section. In this section, you can choose to either ‘show’ or ‘hide’ any one of the other questions listed in your test bank.
Once it is set up, make sure to click the ‘Save’ button to save all the changes.
You also have the option of creating additional conditions to go with a rule and also additional actions. This will add specific and limiting conditions to the rule that you have already created and additional rules as well that will only affect the questions you have selected in the rule
Below is a screenshot of the final output:
If you would like to create a rule for multiple questions or for all of your questions, click the ‘Add Rule’ button on the top of the Logic page.
