Logic Jump: Single Selection vs. Multiple Selection

For a basic primer on what “logic” is, please refer to the article What is Logic Jump? .

When typeforms are more relevant to your audience, you’ll achieve higher engagement and completion rates. You can use Logic Jump to create branching typeforms that head down different paths, depending on people’s answers. It’s a neat way of segmenting your audience and means they’ll only see questions relevant to them. This saves time, and keeps them interested!

Take a look at this example. This typeform will take respondents down one of two paths depending on whether they select “Cat” or “Dog”.

Cat or Dog person

In this article, we’ll show you how this translates into typeforms using Single Selection, and Multiple Selection.

Logic Jump and Single Selection

Single Selection means you can only choose one option in a Multiple Choice question. In this case, you would want to send respondents to a follow-up question based on their answer.

This video shows you how to do this with Logic Jump.

Multiple Selection means your respondents can choose as many options as they like in a Multiple Choice question. Simply switch the “Multiple selection” toggle to ON. So, you would want to ask your respondents follow-up questions based on their previous responses.

The key is to add follow-up questions to all the possible answers, or combinations of answers, that your respondents may give.

Watch this video, which shows how to apply Logic Jumps in this case.

Take a look at the following template:

Let’s look at how you can build a similar typeform.

Here is the Logic map and structure of the typeform:

1. Add the parent question. The parent question usually is a Multiple choice or Picture choice question, where multiple answers are allowed. In our example we used the former: 2. Make sure to switch the Multiple selection button to “ON”.

3. Add the the 4 follow-up questions based on the 4 possible answers. The 4 follow-up questions in our example are these Rating questions:
4. Go back to the parent question “Which news magazines do you like to read?” and add the following Logic Jump:
5. We only want to display relevant follow-up questions, based on the answers chosen in the Multiple choice question “Which news magazines do you like to read?”. In other words, we need to make sure that we hide irrelevant follow up questions from respondents.

In order to achieve this, we’ll add the same set of Logic Jumps we added to the parent question under step 4 to each follow-up question – but excluding the condition covering the jump to the current and previous questions.

  • This is the Logic Jump added to follow-up question #1 “How would you rate The New Yorker?”:
  • This is the Logic Jump added to the first follow-up question #2 “How would you rate Time?”:
  • This is the Logic Jump added to the first follow-up question #3 “How would you rate Newsweek?”:
  • This is the Logic Jump added to the first follow-up question #4 “How would you rate The Economist?”:
