FAQ on Using Custom Variables in Zoho Survey

I want to use the answer of a particular question on page one of the survey as a variable in a question on the subsequent page. Is there a limitation in using custom variables on different pages?

No, there is no restriction in using variables on different pages. To pipe in the response of the previous question into the following question, click Insert Variable and select the question for which you wish to add a follow up question. Read more here. However, you might find custom variables not working well if you are testing the survey in Preview mode. In Preview mode, we don't save the answers to pipe in to the next pages. So, make sure you publish the survey to make use of this feature.
