Can I choose not to answer a certain question?

Learn about a way to set up a question that shouldn't always be answered

Once you're drafting a contract by answering a pre-set questionnaire, you must fill in all the questions that appear. In other words, it is not possible to directly create an optional question. But don't worry - there's still a way! 🧚‍♀️

If you wouldn't like to answer a certain question each time, it is still possible to set this up on a template level by including a conditional question.

  • Example: You're drafting an employee agreement that has a question about the employee's home address. The question should only be included if you as a contract creator know the answer. Otherwise, it's okay to leave it unanswered.

STEP 1/2: Creating a pre-question 

As the first step, you should create a question that will decide whether you'd like to answer an actual, "non-mandatory" question.

  • Example
    "Shall the employee's address be included?", or
    "Do you know the employee's address?"

    Make sure you select multiple choice as a type of answer, with possible answers yes and no.

    STEP 2/2: Creating the main question

    After setting up the pre-question, it's time to create the main question.

    • Example
      "What is the employee's address?"

    Then, make sure to make this question conditional. As a condition, a reference to the pre-question should be equal to yes.

    It other words, a question about the employee's address will only appear and therefore be answered if you choose that.
