- Piping codes allow you to pipe, or move, participants to the next question based on their answer.
- This allows you to ask more relevant questions based on the previous answer.
- For piping codes to work, the questions involved have to be on different pages.
- If a study is duplicated, manually update piping codes added to questions with the piping codes from the new study.
- In your study, here is your first question:
Q1: What size Company do you work for?
- In this example, we'll say the piping code for your answer is C9999C9999,
- To pipe the participant's answer to the next question, Q2 enter the code from Q1. For example:
Q2: In your opinion, what are the advantages of working in a #_C9999C999_# company? Enter your answer in the text box below.
- If the participant answers Midsize in Q1, the text for Q2 will be "In your opinion, what are the advantages of working in a Midsize company?"
