Summary13684: If the exclusive option is selected, the excluded options default to "missing" instead of "no"

If you choose the question type "multiple options" and add an exclusive option (e.g. ask "Which brands do you know?", show 5 brands and also the option "don't know any of them") , the datasets of panelists who selected the exclusive option contain missing values for the other options instead of the value "N" or "not selected".

Steps To Reproduce

Create a multiple options question.
Create two options.
Make on the exclusive option.
Activate the survey.
Answer the survey, selecting the exclusive option.
Download the survey data.
Data for the non-exclusive option will be missing.

TagsNo tags attached.

Just FYI, when implemented it will be added to LS 3.x, not 2.73.

I propose a solution where it will be possible to configure which default answer will be recorded for the non-chosen answer options.

Also, for the future, don't attach an exported question but the whole survey. It's not possible to import a question unless the primary language of the survey is correct.

@Doberdan I just saw that there's some logic in the export code that skips non-selected answers in exclusive question. Would it be enough for you that you can choose to export empty values for these subquestions, or do you also need the value 'N' to be exported? That is, an empty value is not enough.

And Daniel, did you try this one (see pic)?
