Alchemer logic features allow you to customize your survey for each respondent. Doing so will save your respondents from survey fatigue and improve your data quality, since respondents will be more likely to answer only questions that are relevant to them.

Logic can be applied to stand-alone questions, rows within grid questions, answer options, entire survey pages, and actions (Send Email, Quiz Score, etc).

In this tutorial, we will cover how to set up grid row logic.

Notes and Limitations

  • Logic conditions cannot be applied to grid columns.
  • When using negative logic conditions such as is not answered, is not one of the following or is not exactly equal to, the target and trigger questions must be on separate pages in order for those logic conditions to be available. Negative logic can be very tricky; check out our Understanding Negative Logic Tutorial to learn more!
  • Alchemer logic is based on the reporting values that are assigned to your answer options. If you have identical reporting values for any two or more answer options and are basing logic on one of those, the logic condition will not be able to differentiate between the answer options.
  • Question Logic should not be used in conjunction with the Hide this question by default option.
