Conditional questions

When creating questions on forms on the InEvent platform it is possible to add conditional questions. This means you can add a second question depending on the answer that the attendee gives to a specific question on the form.

To do this, you will use the Question Parent Selection function, which serves as a conditional to attach a question to an answer.

You can add conditional questions to the three types of forms offered by InEvent

  1. Registration form
  2. Feedback form
  3. Custom Form
The conditional questions field will only appear if the answer type is Yes/No or List of Options.

How do I create a conditional question for a Yes/No question?

Once you are on the registration, feedback, or custom form page, you will need to follow the steps below:

  1. First, you need to set up the parent question on the platform. To do this, click on the +Add question.

If the attendee selects Yes when asked 'Are you staying overnight?' the child's question will be displayed: 'In which hotel?'. If the attendee selects No for the first question, the child question will not be displayed.
