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


  1. 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



  1. 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.  


  1. 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.
