Go to a particular page when clicking the survey link

Is this script that can be added to the survey link that will take the respondent to a particular page in the survey?

Sure!  You can achieve this with pass-in fields and skips.

First, open up Questionnaire Access and Passwords and navigate to the "Pass-In Fields" tab.  Add a field "pageskip" and set it to Whole Number.

Next, add skips to the Questionnaire Access and Passwords.  Skip to page 2 if pageskip=2, skip to page 3 if pageskip=3, etc.

Finally, when sending out your survey link, append "&pageskip=VALUE" to the end of the URL.  For example, this link will skip to the third page:

You can also use the built-in function called sys_skipto. For example:
 
http://www.mysurvey.com/gonzo/cgi-bin/ciwweb.pl?studyname=cool&sys_skipto=Q11
 
The hyperlink above restarts the "cool" survey and skips respondents directly to Q11.

More information about this function can be found in the help files:
