This feature is included in all paying plans.

Piping allows you to dynamically include previously chosen answers in subsequent questions. It is a great way to make your survey more conversational and relevant for the respondent.

Here's an example to illustrate the concept of piping:

Q1 What is your favorite city trip destination?
A1 Berlin
A2 Amsterdam
A3 Paris
A4 London

Q2 What do you like about {Q1}?

Say that the respondent selects the 4th answer of Question 1 (London), the subsequent question would become:

Q2 What do you like about London?

Piping variables can represent answers of following question types: Text Choice, Image Choice, Drop down, Open Text, Typeahead, Form Text Single Line, Star Rating and Slider (Text). Piping can't be used when you make your question multiple choice.


Below is a step by step guide to add Piping to your survey.

Log in and follow the steps in the tool.

Write your first question, for example:
