Answer piping can be used for multiple use-cases, allowing you to place the answer from a previous question as a variable in Question texts or Headlines.
Using this feature allows your users to have a more personal experience on your website and gather more effective leads. This feature is only available with a Starter plan or higher, but allows you to test the functionality while projects are in draft mode.
Then you can ask the participant for more details on his answer.
This way the participant gets a feeling of having a two-way personal conversation.
The answer pipe option appears in the form of a clickable "Add answer from" text above each question/headline textbox inside the editor. Before opening the answer piping menu place the cursor/caret in the text position where you would like the piped answer to appear. If you don't, the piped answer would be positioned at the end of the text.
You can pipe answers only from questions which are placed on previous pages.
Note: If you don't see the "Add answer from" option that means that you do not have any questions on the previous pages or your are on the very first page.
Once you click on the "Add answer from" text a menu opens containing the pipe-able variables from your previous questions.
In the answer pipe menu you can see the Question text, ID/tag and the page number of the question available for piping.
Once you have selected a desired question to pipe, the question ID will appear in the target text. Do Not change the ID/tag because the system won't be able to link it to the correct question and a "Not Found" text will appear in its place. If the link is correct you will already see the Question text of the question which is being piped in the target question.
If a piped question is not answered during the participant journey the value of the piped answer displayed in the text will remain empty.
Be aware that answer piping functionality does not work in the editor preview, the template preview. Please click "TRY IT" to test the actual replacement. If your subscription ended and your project is already published, the ID/tags will not be replaced any more.
