Survey Question Flow (Skip Logic)

iSURVEY’s intuitive user interface allows you to easily set the flow from question to question depending on the answers given.

You can then test your questionnaire flow using the Live Preview Full Simulation feature before conducting data collection in the field.

Question Flow

Live preview full simulation

You can simulate the subject survey experience on your computer screen using the mouse and keyboard.

You can simulate the use of your survey on an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad without going to the trouble of loading it on to the device.

Just go to the Preview page and use your mouse and keyboard to navigate your survey as if it were on your device. Even the flow works… and if you want to just quickly flick through the whole survey to check how it will work then you can turn the flow off.

You don't need a physical device to trial iSURVEY.
