Why can't I bring questions back together

Using Branch Logic in Microsoft Forms

You can add branching logic to a survey or exam so that the form changes based on the responses to specific questions. In a branched survey or exam, questions are only displayed if they are relevant to the respondent. If the questions do not apply, the respondent is directed to a different group of questions or a group of questions is skipped altogether.

Adding Branch Logic to a Form

Before you begin, make sure that you have created all of the questions. When you're ready to add branches, do the following:

  1. Go to the question that you want to add branching for. Choose Further settings for questions and then Add branch out.

    Note: As you add sections to your form, you can add branches to the sections as well. In the section you want to branch, select Further settings for section and then Add branch out.

  2. Select on the side Branching options the drop-down list next to the question you want to add a branch to.

  3. Select the question you want to branch to. In this example, if a respondent answered yes to the question # 5, you would take them to the next question (# 6) # 6. However, if the respondent answers "No" to the question, # 5 they branch or skip to the question at # 7.


    • You can only branch to a subsequent question and not to a previous one. For example, if your form has seven questions and you want to add a branch to question 4, you can only branch to questions 5, 6, 7 or the bottom of the form. In the same example, question 5 can only branch to questions 6, 7 or the end of the form.

    • When trying to branch to a previous question, such as: B. from question 4 to question 2, the experience for your respondent is interrupted by skipping questions 5 to 7 and taking them directly to the end of the form with the button Submit to get redirected. To prevent this from happening, just branch to an ongoing question.

  4. To add more branches to your survey or assessment, repeat steps 2 and 3. If you want a specific question to appear last in the survey or assessment, select the drop-down list next to that question, then select Form end out.

If you want to completely reset the form and remove the branches, choose More options and then select Reset to default out.
