How to show a certain question only if the previous question was answered with yes


I want to blend in a question depended on the previous question, following this logic: if question 8 was answered with yes, then show question 9, otherwise skip to question 10.

Thank you very much for your help!!

Are you imagining these questions being on the same page, or will the respondent be clicking the next button to continue through these questions?
It would be perfect if they were on the same page... If this is not possible or significantly more difficult it would also be okay to have the respondent be clicking the next button

Thank you!

If the questions are on separate pages, you can just add skips to question 8 with skip logic like:

Q8 = 1

Questions on the same page aren't as simple, but still possible.  You will want to start by downloading "Branching" from the Community Question Library and importing it into your personal question library in Lighthouse Studio:


Then you can add an instance of the "Branching" question to the same page as your other questions and follow the steps in the above link to achieve the behavior you are after.
