Disqualifying Questions and Exit Logic

Hey Nick,

Probably the most straightforward way to implement this behavior is to have
all of the disqualifying questions at the start of the form, then have all
subsequent “regular interview” questions in one group with a display
condition that’s only true if all the disqualifying questions have been
answered acceptably. Then, anyone who doesn’t answer a disqualifying
question satisfactorily would skip over these questions.

If its important that after answering even one disqualifying question
incorrectly the user exit the form, you can setup similar display logic on
all the disqualifying questions such that any “bad” answers to previous
questions will skip that question.

Best,
Will

I’m helping to set up a health survey in Rajasthan and have been trouble
finding a way to set up “disqualifying questions” in our tablet-based
survey instrument. Because only a subset of our sample is eligible for
interviewing, we’d like to have certain answers trigger an "exit logic"
that closes the survey and ends the interview.

My amateur scheme would be to set up “End of Form navigation” that links
several forms, each of which would end with an exit question and a specific
behavior that allows the interviewer to proceed or exit the interview. This
doesn’t seem especially elegant; I assume this is a common logic problem in
other health surveys and I hope an experienced user or developer can guide
my keystrokes.

Thanks for anyone who can help a group of new users. We look forward to
sharing our experience with this platform with colleagues.

Thanks, Will! By a stroke of bad timing, I deleted my original post just
seconds after you posted an answer because I had stumbled on a solution
similar to yours (although still less elegant). In the interest of
preserving the thread, I’m re-posting the original question:
