Visibility Conditions in Questionnaires

For a great user-experience, it is often ideal to hide certain questions until previously asked questions are answered a certain way. For example, let's say you have two questions:


Question 1 : Will the employee be Full-Time or Part-Time?

ID: employmentType


Question 2: How many hours a week will the employee be expect to work?

ID: hoursWorked


In the example above, it would make sense for Question 2 to be hidden unless the answer to Question 1 was Part-Time. The following steps demonstrate how to achieve this using the Questionnaire Builder.


To hide a question until certain conditions are met:

  1. Click Add Visibility Condition.

  2. Select an Identifier. The list of Identifiers matches the values used in the ID fields of other questions (e.g. employmentType).

  1. Select a value that the question referenced by the Identifier must equal in order for the current question to appear (e.g Part-Time).


By doing this, the second question will only appear if the client selected Part-Time.


You can add as many of these Visibility Conditions as you wish. Visibility Conditions can be removed by clicking the red Trash icon beside the conditions.
