Hi,

yet another newbie question.
I write a multi-group survey, displayed group-by-group. There is one specific group of questions, where all the questions depend on some conditions, and it may happen that due to specific answers to previous questions all the questions in this group will be hidden. If this happen, when I press Next in previous group, I move to the screen which has a progress bar, group name and Back/Next buttons only. This is normal, as they are no questions to show, but would it be possible to automatically skip such group and seamlessly move to the next one?

I have run into this problem as well. In my case i found that it was caused by the logic of one question in the group only being based on the logic of another question in that group.

For example:
Group 1 has Q1 and Q2
Group 2 has:
Q3 - only if Q1 if Yes
Q4 - only if Q2 is No
Q5 - only if Q4 is Yes

In this example, the blank screen will show up.

If I change the logic on Q5 so that (Q2 is NO AND Q4 is Yes) it won't show up.

Hope this makes sense.

Brilliant - that was exactly my case. Two question depended only on other questions in the same group. I added "external" condition to them and it solved the case.

Thank you!
