Boolean (Yes/No)

Boolean (Yes/No)

The Boolean question is similar to any other choice type question with Yes/No as answer choices. You can customize the answer labels and can be represented in checkbox/toggle button formats. You can choose where to position the toggle button, either within the question message or add labels that have toggle buttons. By default, the Boolean question's answer will be taken as No.
In the following example, a boolean question can be used instead of a multiple choice question to find out if your customers have vouchers that can be redeemed at your cafe.

Boolean question sample:


To add a Boolean (Yes/No) question in your survey:

  1. Click Boolean (Yes/No) in the question types listed on the left pane. You can also drag and drop the question type to the builder.
  2. In the Question box, type your question.
    • Click the Toggle button/checkbox position dropdown and select Question message or Labels from the list. You can select Question message to collect a single opinion, and Labels to gather multiple opinions.
    • If you want to mark the question mandatory, select the Make this question mandatory checkbox.
    • If you want to make changes to the default Error message text that displays, edit the content in the textbox.
    • If you want to pipe in custom variables or variables from previous questions and customize the follow up questions, click Insert Variable right above the Question box, and select the variable you want to use from the list. Read more on Piping.
  3. In the Answer section, add the values for the On and Off answer choices in the textboxes respectively.

  4. Select either Toggle or Checkbox in the Display format section to set the display format for your answer choices.
  5. Select Left or Right in the Position section to choose where to position the toggle button or checkbox.
  6. To learn what else you can do with the question, click Advanced options. You can perform the following actions:
    • The autofill or prepopulate answer feature allows you to prepopulate single variable survey responses automatically before sending it to respondents. To prepopulate answers for a known respondent, select Prepopulate answer. If you select labels instead of question message, you can add parameter names for each labels.

    • To add a comments box, select Add 'Comments' field. If you want to change the name of the field, type in the new field name in the Comments field label box.
    • Question hint is used to add hints to your question and help your respondents get a clear idea on what your questions are all about. This feature is optional and is available only for certain types of questions.

  7. Switch to the Display Logic tab to add a logic condition to the question.
  8. Click Save.
  9. To discard the changes, click Cancel.
