What's next?

  • Use question types that support custom scoring to give a score to each answer, so that an overall score will be calculated at the end of the survey. Not all question types support this feature by default, however you can use formulas to add custom score to your forms, open ended and ranking inquiries.
  • Add to formula with question logic: Set up your questionnaire with Formulas and Question logic to add a value to a formula when a certain condition is met. This can be done on a specific answer to a question, on a custom score on a question block, or even an intro field.
  • Formulas "using all responses" and Formula Filters: This feature allows you to calculate formulas including all survey responses and make calculations taking into account all responses collected and not just a single respondent's information. Enable this feature so that you can calculate averages, count responses, and more.
