What is branching in MS Form?
Branching in Microsoft Forms is a feature that allows you to direct a respondent to different questions or sections of a form based on their previous answers. This allows you to create a more personalized and efficient form-filling experience for the user.
With the branching feature in MS Forms, you can create a conditional statement that directs the user to a specific question or section of the form based on their answer to a previous question. This can be done when creating or editing a form.
For example, if you ask the question "Have you used our product before?" With the options "Yes" and "No", you can use the branching feature to direct users who select "Yes" to a set of follow-up questions about their experience with the product, and users who select "No" to a different set of questions.
This allows you to gather more specific and relevant information from each user and makes the form-filling experience more efficient and less tedious for the user. The branching feature is one of the many features that can be used to customize a form and make it more interactive.
