Error description

  • You are creating a conditional block to set a value for a
    specific question if a certain condition is met and to skip to a
    different question or to exit the survey. You can use the
    "Create skip and fill" functionality from the shortcuts pane or
    the Tools menu in Author to do this more easily instead of
    creating each of the routing items (Condition > If Block, Set
    Response, Goto) for this separately. However if you use this
    function and the question you want to set contains a "Other"
    response, a "Other" helperfield is inserted in the routing below
    the SetResponse routing item. It doesn't make sense to have a
    helperfield like this in the routing script at that position.
