Skip data collection for a videoask step

Using the button or multiple choice answer types is a great way to allow respondents to navigate easily through your videoask. 

However, there might be times when you're not interested in collecting responses to these particular answer types in your inbox and you might prefer to focus on collecting responses from other answer types.

Skip data collection for button and multiple-choice answer types to avoid seeing and being notified of any unnecessary responses. 

Learn more about the different answer types you can choose for each step of your videoask.

Note: Drop-off analysis will still be displayed for steps with Skip data collection enabled.

If the toggle is off (grayed out), responses will be collected for this step and they will appear in your inbox.

For example, in this two-step videoask (where Skip data collection is turned on for step 1), only the response for step two will show in the inbox:

Note: You cannot retroactively collect data for a step.

For example: if you turn off data collection midway through a videoask campaign and export your responses as a .csv, there will only be data for this step when data collection was turned on.
