Fast Forward & Halt Blocks

Fast Forward and Halt Blocks are types of Navigation Blocks that let you control the flow of your app.

1. Fast Forward Blocks: When a user reaches a Fast Forward block, the user automatically teleports to the end of the app unless one of the following happens: the app reaches a question that must be answered but isn't currently and doesn't have default values or the app reaches a Halt Block.

2. Halt Blocks: When an app reaches a Halt Block and is "fast forwarding", the fast forward action stops and the user lands on the last visible Page Block before the Halt Block was reached.
