What is a Yes/No task?
A Yes/No task provides the respondent with two simple answer options: Yes or No. This task type is ideal for situations where an initial determination needs to be made. Yes/no tasks tend to have conditional logic built to gather further information after the initial Yes or No datapoint has been gathered.

Create a Yes/No task
There are three ways to create a Yes/No task in the Mission Builder.
- Add component to an empty mission builder canvas
- Select ‘Add Component’. This button is only available when adding the first task to a new mission or section.
- Pick Yes/No from the components list
- Drag and drop Yes/No from the components panel onto the mission builder canvas. This can be done on an empty canvas or at any stage of mission building.
- Click the ‘+’ sign above or below any existing task and choose Yes/No from the components list
Configure a Yes/No task
- Task title: Title your newly created task with a question that requires a Yes or No answer.
- Task description: If the task requires specific instruction or further information, add a brief task description to help the user interpret the assignment.
- Make task optional: Newly created tasks default to being required, meaning the user must submit a response. Tasks can be changed to optional by checking the This task is optional box in the task configuration panel.
Add conditional tasks
You can add conditional tasks to any Yes/No task. Conditional tasks allow for a specific subtask to be populated based on the Yes or No answer that was submitted. This allows users to expand on their selection with a customized follow-up that pertains to their original answer.
To add a conditional task:
- Click on the ‘+’ icon to the right of a Yes/No task title
- Select a task type that provides logical follow-up to your initial Yes/No task. Any task type can be added as a conditional to a Yes/No parent task.
- Set a condition for the conditional task in the task configuration panel. This ensures the conditional task only appears when a specific answer is selected in the Yes/No parent task.
You can add conditional tasks to conditional tasks, nesting multiple layers of child tasks as needed.
