Looping is the ability to create groups of questions that ask about the quantity of previously selected responses. For example, if an applicant has indicated that they have four team members collaborating on their application, then one may want to loop through the “Team Member Contact Information” group of questions four times. Looping saves time. It replaces the need to create a group of questions for each potential response. A loop makes the group of questions appear specific to each application’s response.
- Go to the Form Builder
- Right click on a question on the form builder.
- Select Looping from the right-click menu.
- In the dialogue box that appears, select which question(s) will trigger the looping.
NOTE: An Inverted Extraction allows you to ask users questions about non-selected answer choices.
- Select the first and last page of the form that the looping will occur on. For each answer choice selected, the form-taker will go through that page range. Ex. If pages 2-4 were the first and last pages to loop on, and the user selected 3 answer choices on the looping pivot point, they would loop through the two pages three times.
- Press OK
- Save your form
Once users answer the looping question and presses “Next” on the form, they'll cycle through the first to last pages of the loop. In each loop page, they'll answer questions for each answer choice they selected (or didn’t select if the form builder chose “Inverted Extraction”).
