Dependency questions

Dependency questions are questions that depend on the response to a previous question, eg. if a specific response is chosen, then a new question will be revealed.

See Dependency questions for guidance on setting these up.

NB: You can only set up dependency questions when the 'parent' question is a 'choice' type of question, e.g. checkbox, dropdown or radio button questions. Conference tickets and events questions are also included.
