  • 1.  Managing sub questions in registration paths

    Posted 10-01-2021 12:59
    Hi, 
    I wondered if anyone can help me... I am creating a staff registration form and asking people if they are travelling to the event by train, car or air. Depending on their answer I want to jump to a different set of questions e.g if they are travelling by air it jumps to the travel booked form? If they are travelling by train I want it to jump to some text which says about local train stations. If they are travelling by car, I want to jump to some text about parking. 

    Is this possible within the form? If so, how would I set this up? 

    Thanks in advance

    You can set up sub-questions so if they choose train a sub-question shows up; same with car. I don't know about sending them to the air travel form though. Unless you just add text explaining that they should fill that out.

    Unfortunately, the ability to place text instead of a question using subquestion type logic is one of the functionalities that existed in classic but for some reason does not exist in Flex. I have it submitted in the ideas section if you'd like to vote for it. It's under "Adding text with subquestion type logic"

    Looks like I already voted for it. :)
    Goes on the lines  of my idea based on reg type or advanced filter.
    Conditional text widget

    I up-voted both Steven's and Kelly's ideas.

    We have this exact same problem.... As a horrible workaround, we use the Registration Type widget and our registration types are "I will book via Concur", "I will request a flight", "I will request a train", "I don't need any travel" etc.  Based off their answer, they are sent down the appropriate registration path with only that travel information and type.

    I say horrible because this means you have a lot of different registration paths to manage.... If we could have the Air Actuals, Air Request widget(s) etc. appear based off the answer to a question, we could manage all of this within 1 Registration Path. 

    Thankfully the ability to assign Room Types to Reg Type instead a Reg Path cut our paths in half (that's another story).
