Skip Logic and Numeric Type Questions

For Numeric type questions, the following types of skip logic criteria are supported
  1. Equal e.g. 100
  2. Greater than e.g. > 100
  3. Less than e.g. < 100
  4. Range of values e.g. 100 - 200

Skip Logic & Open Ended questions

For open ended questions, skip logic will match on lowercase or uppercase values of the skip logic criteria

Skip Logic & Multiple Choice/Select questions

Either the option character or option value of the response can be used to define skip logic
  1. For example: to match the choice "A) Land" either "A" or "Land" can be used.
  2. For example : A,C (Either option A or C)

Skip Logic and NPS Questions

Based on the scale you would have set up for your NPS question(either NPS scale of 0-10 or NPS scale of 0-5), you can apply skip logic criteria as desired.

Let's take the NPS scale 0-10, this will put contacts' responses into three categories




For example if you are planning to target Detractors with the scale of 0-10, you can set
  1. Less than 6 e.g <  6
  2. A range where both 0 and 6 are inclusive e.g 0 - 6

For example if you are planning to target Promoters with the scale of 0-10, you can set
  1. Greater than 9  > 9
  2. A range where both 9 and 10 are inclusive e.g 9 - 10
For example if you are planning to target Passives with the scale of 0-10, you can set
  1. A range where both 7 and 8 are inclusive e.g 7 - 8
