Use branching in Microsoft Forms

Use branching in Microsoft Forms

Tip: Create a survey, quiz, or poll with Microsoft Forms. Want to create an advanced survey? Try Microsoft Forms Pro.

You can add branching logic to a survey or quiz so that it changes according to the responses to specific questions. In a survey or quiz that branches, questions appear only if they are relevant to the responder. If the questions don't apply, the responder is redirected to a different set of questions or will skip a set of questions altogether.

Add branching to your form

Before you get started, it's a good idea to make sure all of your questions are created. When you're ready to add branching, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the question for which you want to add branching. Click More settings for question More options button , and then select Add Branching.

  3. Select the question that you want to branch to. In this example, if a responder answers Yes to the first question, you them to go on to the next question (#2). However, if the responder answers No to the first question, you would branch, or skip, to question #3.

  4. To insert additional branches to your survey or quiz, repeat steps 2 and 3. If you want a particular question assigned as the final one in the survey or quiz, click the dropdown menu next to that question, and then select End of the form.

If you want to completely reset your form and remove branching, click More options More options button , and then select Reset.
