There are three types of Prequalification (screener) questions you can use in your surveys; Single choice, Multiple Positive choices, and Multiple negative choices. When you add more than one prequal to your survey, respondents will go through questions in the order they are programmed. Each PQ acts as a gateway to the next question, and ultimately, the survey; respondents will only move on the the next question (whether in the main survey body or prequalifying section) if they have met the parameters set by the PQ.

1. Using Single choice prequals
This question will allow a respondent to select 1 answer choice and you can select the accept/disqualify on individual answer choices. After you type out your question click on the accept/disqualify to the right to adjust the setting.
2. Using Multiple Positive prequals
Multiple positive choices could be used when you want to include respondents who have purchased your product in the last six months, or you'd like to achieve a certain behavior frequency.
3. Using Multiple Negative prequals
Multiple negative choices could be used when you want to disqualify respondents who work in certain industries, or who are unfamiliar with a product line (or conversely, are TOO familiar with a product line!).
4. Analyzing Prequals
On the Results page, Prequals display in a chart, with line-by-line summary data below. Percentages and numbers for each answer option will only show for respondents who were accepted into the survey.
