5 Categories High Score - Variable vs Variable

Posted 2/11/2024

Lots of folks create Typeforms where they want to 'categorize' respondents, based on their responses, and present them with a unique ending based on the highest category score. 

In my cheat sheet, I show the set up and logic rules in that template so that you can simply copy them in a template of your own.

The variables that I use for the category subtotals are identified (for you to create) and they are used in the logic rules, as you will see. I use a series of 5 'dummy questions' in the template to get values into those variables - all I do is replace those 5 questions with the number of questions I need in my quiz to create the scores for each category. Adding logic rules to those new questions puts the appropriate scores into the category subtotals for later evaluation.

This version of the template compares the variable subtotals against each other (rather than against a fixed scale) to determine if there is a unique high score. There is NO tie breaker in this version but the ability to extend the logic to add a tie breaker or other logic routing is possible

Registering Multiple Participants

Posted 10/23/2023

Registering multiple participants – a Cheat Sheet

One of the things that comes up in the Typeform Community and with many clients, is the ability to register multiple participants. Here are a couple use cases where this has come up in the recent past:

  • Recording the meal preferences of people attending a wedding
  • Registering a team and members in a sports league
  • Creating a team and recording the members for a ‘team event’ – like the Lawn Bowling Day we had recently with a client.

There are a number of ways that you can do this but this Cheat Sheet is going to outline two methods that relatively easy to use:

  • Method 1 – using a counter and question groups
  • Method 2 – using two typeforms – an entry form and then a ‘looping’ typeform to add additional users (infinitely if you want)

 

You’ll see the variables, logic rules, and questions that I created to make these examples. You can use the screenshots and create the details in your own typeforms – recreate these as templates that you can duplicate and put into use to address your own specific use case.

Multi-Select Multiple Choice Logic Rules

Posted 10/14/2023

How to ensure that you get the user to the ‘right questions’ when you have a multiple-selection Multiple Choice.

This Cheatsheet covers the basic logic structure you need to implement if you want to have the user select multiple options from a multiple choice AND ensure that you take them to the follow up questions associated with their choices.

In the Typeform Community, I see a lot of folks asking how to solve this problem when they first get started. So I put together this cheatsheet to show you how to do it.

I have included three different ‘scenarios’:

-          Each choice going to a single follow up question

-          Using Question Groups associated with the selections

-          A brief discussion on ‘nesting’ a multi-select multiple choice inside a question group that is already on a ‘multi-selection’ path

5 Categories High Score Simple Tie-Breaker

Posted 10/14/2023

Lots of folks create Typeforms where they want to 'categorize' respondents, based on their responses, and present them with a unique ending based on the highest category score. Think of a personality quiz or an 'archetype' quiz. Figuring out how to do this in Typeform's logic rules was one of the first (and most difficult test for me at the time) projects where I created my own template that I could re-use every time I had to determine the highest scoring of 5 categories. 

In my cheat sheet, I show the set up and logic rules in that template so that you can simply copy them in a template of your own. The variables that I use for the category subtotals are identified (for you to create) and they are used in the logic rules, as you will see. I use a series of 5 'dummy questions' in the template to get values into those variables - all I do is replace those 5 questions with the number of questions I need in my quiz to create the scores for each category. Adding logic rules to those new questions puts the appropriate scores into the category subtotals for later evaluation. 

 This one has a simple tie-breaker question that can be used or replaced as you see fit.
