Real Case: Simplify Forms with Jump Questions

In this part, we’ll show you a real-life example of how conditional logic can make a difference in your form experience. Get a clear idea of how to set it up on your own with PlatoForms’ helpful tutorials and best practices. It’s easy and powerful!

What is Jump Questions? A “Jump Question” is a kind of conditional logic. It allows the form to skip certain questions or sections based on the user’s responses. In other words, depending on how a user answers a particular question, the form can dynamically direct them to different parts of the form, bypassing irrelevant sections.

Scenario: Imagine you’re designing a customer purchase form. If customers have a discount code, they must enter it for validation. Without a code, they can proceed to the next steps directly. Jump Questions make this personalized journey possible.

How to Set Up Jump Question Logic:

  • Add the Fields:

    Fields for Jump questions

    • Choice field (“Have a discount code?”) with “Yes” and “No” options.
    • Text Field (“Enter discount code”).
  • Apply Logic to the Fields:

    Set jump logic
    If “Have a discount code?” is “Yes”, then show the Text Field for entering discount code.


Watch the magic unfold when users click “Yes”—input box appears for seamless discount code input.
