Let me introduce you to Process Street’s swanky updated feature, conditional logic within tasks.
What does this mean?
Simply put, it means that you can use Process Street to build quiz templates by creating rules within tasks using conditional logic – these rules then generate personalized outcomes.
In other words, you can create tasks within checklists that adapt to meet your personal needs and circumstance.
Conditional logic within tasks can also be used to shorten the length of your overall template.
Say goodbye to scrolling through irrelevant questions that don’t apply to you and claim back the time you once wasted filling out online forms.

Read on to learn how conditional logic helps to make your daily workload easier.
What is conditional logic?
Process Street‘s conditional logic is a powerful feature that allows you to create truly dynamic quiz templates and checklists by using if-this-then-that logic.
It’s simple – all you need is a trigger and an outcome. Set the trigger (answering “yes” in a drop-down menu, for example) and the outcome (show a hidden task only when someone answers “yes”) and there you go!
We’ve always had this feature, but it used to be restricted to showing and hiding tasks. Now, you can show and hide anything you want! Form fields and all.
Using if-this-then-that logic allows you to automatically make decisions based on a condition or action that occurred at any point in the process, either within the task itself or a point in the checklist as a whole.
This might be a good moment to explain what exactly I mean by “checklists” and explain why I keep referring to them in a post about building quiz templates…
A quiz is essentially just another form of a checklist.
Process Street is built around the use of templates and checklists. Using Process Street, you can build powerful, dynamic quizzes to use at work (or even recreationally).
So what’s the difference between a template and a checklist?
In Process Street, a checklist refers to an individual instance of a template. Like a child of a parent. For example, if you have a Create Invoice Template, you would run a new checklist every time you wanted to create an invoice.
Here’s a quick YouTube video if you’re keen to understand more about the difference between a template and a checklist:
Now, back to conditional logic…
It’s really as simple as what it says on the tin. You can make your quizzes respond differently based on the input they receive. This allows for additional instructions to show based on a particular response.
There are two ways to create conditional logic rules in your quiz templates. The first is to show or hide content within a task, the second is to show or hide whole tasks or headings.
Let’s take a look at how conditional logic works in some interesting quiz examples.
This or That Questions Quiz Template
This template takes the form of a fun this-or-that questions quiz, and uses conditional logic within specific tasks. You can either run this quiz as it is or make edits to the template to customize it for yourself.
It also uses conditional logic within tasks. This enables you to build logic in one clear view and manage the rules you set up. The rules you setup will then influence which fields (or questions and answers) you see.
This or that questions ask players to choose between two options, “this” being option one, and “that” being option 2.
Our selection of this or that questions include random fun questions and questions separated by category (such as food 🍕).
It’s super easy to edit the question text, add some answer choices, and customize the feedback messages. Plus, you can add pictures, videos, and embeds to the task to enhance your questions and answers.
Employee Review Template
This template takes the form of an Employee Review and demonstrates how conditional logic can be used between tasks.
Regular employee performance reviews are widely recognized to be vital for the smooth running of any business. Replacing the tiresome annual employee reviews with quarterly reviews is thought to improve employee engagement and performance.
In fact, only 49 percent of employees find that annual reviews are accurate, while 90 percent of HR heads believe annual reviews do not yield accurate information. – Jeff Weber, Regular Employee Feedback to Replace the Annual Review
Today’s agile workforce needs nimble new strategies, processes, and tools to enable feedback between employees and their managers. Fortunately, this employee performance review will help managers onboard, manage, motivate, develop, and support their team.
Aim to run this checklist near the end of every quarter to optimize your team.
So, there you have it, you should now have a firm grasp on what conditional logic is.
Now let’s take at some of the best practices for using conditional fields to create a quiz template.
Best practices for using conditional fields to create a quiz template
Using conditional logic in Process Street is easy, but there are a few simple steps you’ll need to cover in order to get it working: This section will take you through these steps.
In order to get conditional logic functioning correctly, you will need to have built out some tasks and added at least one form field into your template.
This form field will be the trigger that shows or hides the details in your checklist (or quiz) once it’s run.
These are the current form fields and their input types that can be used for setting Conditional Logic rules within Process Street.

Check out the templates below to have a look at how you can use Process Street to create checklists; quiz templates; tests, and so much more.
Career Assessment Quiz Template
This template provides you with all you need to build your own Career Assessment Quiz Template.
It is based on the Open Extended Jungian Type Scales 1.2 framework developed by Eric Jorgenson.
This framework is similar to the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator which is perhaps the most well-known personality test available in the psychology and human resources community. The indicator assesses your personality type and explores career options.
This test categorizes people into one of 16 different personality types.
With a series of questions, the test determines whether you gravitate toward extroversion or introversion, sense or intuition, thinking or feeling, and judging or perceiving.
Peer Review Example Template Checklist
This Peer Review Example Template Checklist is designed to be edited by teachers to match their specific subject field. The checklist can then be rolled out to students so that they can perform peer reviews on each other’s work.
Peer reviews assist students in developing and communicating logical reasoning through writing. This Peer Review Template Checklist provides students with the opportunity to further enhance their critical thinking skills.
The Peer Review Example Template Checklist should be completed over the period of a month- the first two weeks allow for the students to write their papers and the last two weeks for the peer reviews to occur.
Leadership Legacy Assessment Test Template
This Leadership Legacy Assessment Test Template is based on the Your Leadership Legacy Test framework as originally designed by Rob Galford and Regina Fazio Maruca.
The assessment identifies your leadership style which could be a configuration of one or more of the following: ambassador; advocate; people mover; truth-Seeker; creative builder; experienced guide.
Disclaimer: This template was designed to demonstrate how a Leadership Legacy Assessment Test could be run through Process Street. It is not intended to be a working test; rather, it is intended to provide a basic structure that you can use to build your own working tests.
For instructions on how to get this working, see our aptitude test article.
