The Sitemap is like the outline for the content piece. It displays the list of pages in the content piece including the welcome screen, the questions and the outcome screen.
On the Sitemap, you can also click on “Add New” to add different form elements and widgets.
2. Welcome Screen
The Welcome Screen is the landing page of your content piece. It is the very first page that your users will view when they click on your interactive content.
You can customize your welcome page as per your requirements, add a suitable heading, sub-heading, add or change background photo, button text, etc. You can also choose to place the lead generation form on the welcome screen.
After the welcome screen, comes the questions. You can add as many questions as you want. The Outgrow builder has various question types ranging from single-select, multi-select to opinion scale, file uploads, date & time picker, etc.
You can select an appropriate question type, add your question, a description if required, and set up the answer fields.
You can mark your question as mandatory if you want. Outgrow also offers the option to add conditional logic jumps to your questions. Using this feature, you can set up a workflow based on the users’ responses.

The result screen is the final outcome screen visible to your users. It is what makes each content type on Outgrow unique. From calculation-based results in calculators, custom-mapped outcomes in quizzes, to scorecards and randomized results in assessments and giveaways, Outgrow has it all.
In case of an outcome quiz, you can add multiple outcomes and set up the mapping as required. Add catchy outcome headings, descriptions, suitable media including images, videos, charts, etc. to make your results page appealing and share-worthy.
By navigating to the “Outcome Page” section, you can set up elements like social shares and subscription options, disclaimer text, etc.
5. Lead Generation Form
Lead generation is the main purpose for creating interactive content. Hence, the lead generation form is one of the most important elements of your content piece.
In this form, you can add multiple fields like name, email, address, phone number, etc. It can be placed anywhere including the welcome screen, with the questions, before the results, or with the results.
