What is a dynamic quiz?

New quizzes made in Octane AI start as a dynamic quiz by default.

Product logic is set up in dynamic quizzes by adding products into answers as inclusions or exclusions, letting a customer form their own recommendations as they select answers.

When to use a dynamic quiz?

Most quizzes work as dynamic quizzes, and they’re a great fit for stores that have a large number of SKUs or products frequently out of stock. Some examples of dynamic quizzes are:

  • Apparel Finder

  • Glasses Finder

  • Jewelry Finder

Dynamic quizzes are also quick to create. If you don't require precisely curated result screens, dynamic quizzes can also be a great way to a quick quiz launch.

Dynamic quizzes use a system of key questions to add precision in product recommendations.

Use this guide to learn how key questions work & best practices for building dynamic quiz logic.

What is a custom quiz?

Custom quizzes gives you direct control over each result in your quiz by using a system of rules and branching logic.

This allows a custom quiz to be a great choice for quizzes of all scales, from 1-question pop-up quizzes to longform quizzes with personalized result page content.

When to use a custom quiz?

Custom quizzes are a great choice for building routines or a curated selection of products. Some examples of custom quizzes are:

  • Shade Finder

  • Routine Builder

  • Build a box / bundle

  • Supplements finder

  • Educational quizzes

Custom quizzes can also be great choices for quizzes with simple product choices or recommendation logic.

Since all you have to do to link a result page with an answer is add the answer as a rule to the desired result, it can be a quick way to build a personalized quiz.

Octane Plus users can use advanced logic inside of:

  • Questions

  • Answers

  • Content blocks

  • Products

This can be used to show a different version of the same page to customers depending on their quiz choices.

Use this guide to learn more about how to personalize results this way.

Use this general pre-launch quiz checklist as a reference point for your priorities before a quiz launch.
