Survey Piping

Piping allows you to display a previously collected answer later in the survey. If you move questions, you will need to update the piping equation. It is best practice to put a piping question on a new page.

Pipe an answer into options

To pipe answer options from one question into a new question:

  1. Create a new element on a new page which contains options (e.g. Dropdown, Single Select, Checkboxes, or Matrix).
  2. Click Add piping options.
  3. Select a previous question you'd like to pipe into this question.
  4. Your result will look like this.

Pipe an answer into a question

To insert piping, you can click the More button to the right of the Question input field, and then click Insert Piping.

You can also do it manually using the equation {pg=1,q=1} for the answer from Question 1 on Page 1. To insert the answer from Question 4 on Page 5 you would use {pg=5,q=4}.

This is what it will look like in the survey:
