Learn about different types of branch endings for your logic

You can determine how each branch should behave at the end of the branch. This will affect how the form continues after the branch, for example to skip to another point, the end, or show a custom closing message.

Branches in form builder

In this article we showed how to add branches to your form. One of the items we addressed over there was branch endings. Let's take a deeper look into that.

Types of branch endings

At the end of each branch it's possible to set what should happen after a respondent completes the branch. To do so, you click the green bubble at the bottom of a branch. There are four options:

  • Continue with the next cluster or branch;
  • Jump to a specific point;
  • Jump to end;
  • End with closing message.

Continue with the next cluster or branch

This is the default branch end behavior. It lets the form determine the first logical continuation and show that to the respondent. Depending on your form's structure that could be the next question block, an action block, the end, etc.

Jump to a specific point

Example of a jump to a specific point.

This lets the form jump to a specific cluster inside your form that you select. In this way you can for example skip a few questions and jump to a later point in your form.

Keep in mind you can only jump to clusters that have a name, so before you make the jump, make sure you named the cluster you want to skip to.

Jump to end

This lets the form jump to the very end immediately. This will show the common closing message (including the possibility to redirect) to your respondents.

End with closing message

This lets the form end and show a custom closing message (including the possibility to redirect) to your respondents that end the form here.

Example of a custom closing message.

We have made some video tutorials on how to use branches. It shows where to do this in the form builder and what options you have.
