Featured video: Skip Logic Feature

With the skip logic feature you can easily direct people to different pages in your form based upon previous answers. Streamlining your form like this increases your completion rate because users are only shown the questions they actually need to fill out. Let's say you're planning a conference, registrants will fill out their personal information and it will select the type of registration they want. Those who select a full registration will be given the option of getting a meal, and everyone who registers gets a T-shirt.

Now let's see how you can add skip logic rules to the form will skip over the meal page if the user selects a one-day registration. To add skip logic rules, add a page break when you want to apply the rules, in this case it would be right after the registration question. Then select navigate-to-page in our case, we want to go to page three, the meals page– unless a one-day registration is selected. In that case we want to send the user to page four– the T-shirt page. So we choose the registration question in the drop-down menu and select the one-day registration and go to page four. Then we'll add a new condition. Select student one-day registration and send those selections directly to page four as well. You can add as many conditions as you like, and send each to a different page Now let's click test to see our skip logic rule in action.

I'll enter my name into the form and click next. And on the conference registration page I'll select the full conference and click next. And here we are at the meals page followed by the t-shirt page. Now let's go back and choose a one-day registration and see what happens. When we do that, it skips the meals page and takes us directly to the t-shirt page.

Skip logic provides users with a better experience by not showing unnecessary questions which increases the chances they will successfully complete your form. And it's just one of the many simple yet powerful features available in Adobe form Central.
